Tuesday is Field Day for Kindergarten!!  Please make sure your child wears something that is ok to get dirty/wet!  Our field day will begin at 12:00 and last until 2:30.  Students will also need to wear sunscreen.  If you send sunscreen with them, I will make sure to put it on them. Parents are welcome to take their kiddo home after field day.

The kiddos have an opportunity to get snow cones after field day.  The Kona Ice truck will be at our school.  If you would like for your student to have a snow cone, please send $3 for a regular, $4 for a King, $5 for a re-usable color changing cup.  Several students have not brought money for snow cones yet.

Field Day is a very fun day!  Your kiddo will have a blast!
