We will have a cookout with hamburgers and hot dogs (vegan and gluten free options available).  Get ready for cotton candy, sweet treats, games, prizes, photo booth, face painting, balloon animals, a cake walk, and fun with friends!

To make this happen we will need a lot of volunteers so please see sign up HERE and see where you or a family member can help (teens welcome!). We will  need some grills and BBQ cooks as well.  We will also have a cake walk! Included in the signup, please let us know if you can contribute a cake or a small group of cupcakes kids can win! 

 Wristbands and tickets are available for pre-sale and we highly recommend doing this to avoid the long line at the ticket booth and allow for more time to have fun. Buy your tickets and wristbands HERE

See you soon and fingers crossed for good weather!

Please,  e-mail them to or upload them to the link e-mailed to you by your teacher.

Rename your photos with the following convention before uploading or e-mailing it to us:
  • a single character representing the grade your child was in when the photo was taken (K,1,2,3,4,5) followed by an underscore then your student’s name
  • example:  “1_AliceGoulding.jpg” would be a photo of Alice from the first grade
Photos need to be received by June 16th to be included in the slideshow.  E-mail if you have any questions.  Thanks!
