Riley School alumni, faculty and current families are invited to gather for an open house and reunion evening under the wide summer sky at the peak of the Perseid meteor showers Saturday, Aug. 13, from 5 to 9 p.m.

Participants are encouraged to bring friends, family and a picnic and join in sharing stories, music, laughter and friendship.

The elementary school campus has been a busy place this summer. Summer campers have been tinkering, exploring and creating tree houses in the woods. Fireflies have been lighting up the night sky and the heron patiently waits for his meal each afternoon. The garden and greenhouse are producing vegetables and the solar array is banking energy for the cooler months ahead.

Things to bring: a blanket, a picnic, a telescope, a lawn chair, a musical instrument. The school will have a grill, buckets of ice and plenty of ingredients for s’mores available.

The Riley School is located at 73 Warrenton Road in Rockport. For more information, call Elisa at 596-6405.
