Field Day Volunteers Needed

Mrs. Montgomery, our PE teacher, has lots of fun activities planned for field day this year and she needs as many volunteers as possible.  We are seeking parent volunteers to help run the stations as students rotate through them and to help as runners (getting water for station leaders, filling water buckets, etc.).  Field days are June 5th for PreK and Kindergarten, June 6th for first grade, and June 7th for second grade.  Please click on the link below and complete the Google form if you would like to volunteer.
