Reminder for May 10

Tomorrow morning at 9:15am is our field day.  We will be outside for about an hour.  Please make sure your child is dressed for the weather.  Although they will be moving around, the mornings have been chilly.  This year the gym teachers did not ask the students to wear a particular color t-shirt, but if they have a Springdale t-shirt that would work.  Thanks and I look forward to seeing you tomorrow.
