Macon East Academy held its second annual Back to School Bash and Silent Auction on August 18, 2019. The event, hosted by the PTO, brings families from the school and community together for an afternoon of fun and fellowship for all ages. Kids enjoyed carnival games and prizes, inflatables, face painting, balloon animals, and more. The touch-a-truck area gave all a chance to get an up close look at police and emergency vehicles, power company lift trucks, as well as several antique tractors. Older kids had a blast at the dunking booth, aiming to soak their coaches and headmaster with a toss of the ball. The day is topped off with a silent auction, featuring a wide variety of items up for the bidding. The Bash was a great success thanks to a great turnout, generous local sponsors, and the many hardworking volunteers. The PTO is already planning for even more fun next year.
