    Field Day 2015!

    Thank  you so much to all the people that donated their time or their supplies to field day!  Due to all your support and help we had a very successful and fun day.  Your help was truly appreciated!  A big shout out to Shawna Carter for spending the whole day on Thursday making water balloons, Omid Amini for refilling and transporting all that water for our favorite station, and the Wellness Committee for their amazing job organizing the cookout for lunch and the watermelon snack at the end of the day!  This day would not be as great as it was without your help!  Thank you!
