Field Day

Volunteers Needed for Field Day!
A Track Field Day is right around the corner! Kindergarten - 2nd grade will be held on June 11th. 3rd-6th grades will be held on June 12th. Volunteers need to arrive at 9 am. Field Day will begin at 9:30. We need a MINIMUM of 25 volunteers each day. We anticipate volunteers begin finished around 11:30.
Based on the experience last year, we have made a few changes to Field Day. Parent volunteers will be running the games. Teachers will be bringing their classes out. Due to the very warm weather and the later date this year, field day has been shortened. We will NOT be making confirmation calls this year regarding volunteers. If you sign up, we will expect to see you there. If we have more than 25 parents volunteer for a given day - we will still be able to use you!
Please check in at the table by the new playground to receive your assignment and instructions
