  • Parents and grandparents who would like to eat in the lunchroom with their child/grandchild, should let the child’s teacher know so that they can be included in the lunch count. The menu for Thursday is bacon or cheese pizza, salad or yogurt, and a beverage. The menu for Friday is sloppy joes, baked beans, potato chips, fruit and a beverage.
  • This year, we will be awarding ribbons in a “closing ceremony.”
  • After the events conclude, students may be checked out by a parent or may stay and complete the school day.

We invite parents and grandparents to come to Field Day and cheer on the students as they compete in various track and field events. Classes rotate from one event to another on the field so guests may want to consider bringing a lawn chair, sunblock, and water.
