NEW DATE for Kindergarten Field Day!

From Kindergarten and Physical Education Teachers:

Dear Kindergarten Families,

It seems that the weather is being quite uncooperative!  Looking ahead at the forecast for Friday, we know it is going to be very rainy.  Looking further ahead to Monday (the original rain date) it still seems that the conditions are still not good for Field Day.

For the safety and enjoyment of our Field Day Athletes, as well as for our cheering fans, we will move our Kindergarten Field Day to TUESDAY, MAY 22nd.  Our Parade of Champions will begin at 9:30 am, so  we hope to see everyone out back by the Gym on TUESDAY, MAY 22nd!

Thank you for your understanding and cooperation!

In the spirit of Teacher Appreciation Week, the PTG delivered a replacement of the existing refrigerator currently located in the Custodian Office. It is heavily utilized by many, including the PTG for various events and activities and was not keeping temperature as needed. We also learned it was a Wish List item for some time and thought it would be a great token of appreciation from all of us in the PTG!
