for Memorial Day

Dear Parents, Field Day is just around the corner and we are asking for your help. In the past, we have always had a great showing of parents on Field Day. Hopefully, this year will be like every other year. There is something special about this day and I believe having all our parents there to take part in the day’s activities is that driving force. If you are volunteering, please remember to register inthe gym once you arrive.

DATE: Monday, June 8, 2015, 9:00 am – 2:00 pm (Rain Date is Monday June 15, 2015)

Volunteers are needed for events, shopping, set up, clean up and lunch. Please fill out the below form and return it to your child’s teacher by Wednesday, May 27, 2015. (Forms can also be given to Mr. Trahan or Ms. Siramarco or placed in their mailboxes in the main office).
