The Springville community is invited to join the school for a Welcome Back and Pre-Game Celebration from 6 to 7 p.m. Friday, Sept. 7 at the practice fields behind Springville High School.

The event will kick off the new school year and is designed to build school and community spirit. There will be music, food, games and face painting and will allow the public to see the new and improved Pop Warner Field.

The first 200 people to arrive will receive a special gift.

The celebration takes place before the 7:30 p.m. kickoff of the Griffins’ matchup against the Medina Mustangs in the Springville varsity squad’s 2018 home opener.
