Ask our kids and they will tell you – Field Day is one of their favorite activities. This year Field Day will take place on Friday, June 3, and as always, we need our parents help to make this possible. All of the lower school (pre-kindergarten through fourth grade) will be teaming up to take part in 12 awesome games. We will have some old favorites (think Ooblek) and some new ones too but we need your help to make this possible.
This is a really fun volunteer opportunity. Not only are you helping make this event
a success but you also get to watch your kids and their friends having an awesome time.
If you have any questions please drop Paula Wilkinson, Lower School Field Day Chair, an email ((firstname.lastname@example.org.)
