The first will be held this Tuesday, October 29, from 8:30 to 9:30 a.m.

Fun fact: HFES had the 3rd-highest growth scores out of all CMS elementary schools last year!

Chili Cook Off with SouthPark STC

SouthPark STC has invited our Neighborhood Association to cohost the Annual Chili Cook Off this year on Saturday, October 12th, 7:00-10:00 p.m. This event is not only delicious but also tons of fun! There will be cozy fires, lively music and of course tasty chili for all to enjoy. A great way to finally welcome Fall!

To enter the cook-off you will need to bring your chili in a crockpot so we can keep it warm. We will provide all the chili fixings like cheese, sour cream, chips, sliced jalapeños, etc. Awards (including the coveted silver trophy) will go to the top 3 chilis and the chili with the best name, so be creative!

If you would like to enter a chili, please email Info@southparkstc.com. If you just want to bring your appetite, let us know who and how many at the same email address. See you there!unnamed
