Back to School Ice Cream Social

The Ice Cream Social is generally held the evening before the first day of school at Altoona's 10th Street Park from 5:30-7:00 p.m.  The entire community is invited to enjoy ice cream cones as a celebration of the upcoming start of a new school year. Contributing to the festivities are the Altoona High School Band, the Altoona Police & Fire Department, and a variety of local family-friendly non-profit organizations.  In addition, an Eau Claire Transit bus and driver are always on hand for "tours" and last minute questions.  Guest scoopers include: school district administration and board members, city administration and council members, members of the fire/police departments and 4K site directors and teachers.

Family Learning Night

Every year the Altoona Children's Council partners with the Altoona School District to help sponsor Family Learning Night, Child Development Day, and Books In the Park to encourage family sharing and learning as an extension of the education process.  The Altoona Children's Council has also partnered with the Altoona Library to create and maintain theme based Family Activity kits for families to check out.
