Field Day is May 31

We will be in Peacock Meadows in Golden Gate Park for this day of outdoor fun and activities.

There will be a Holi celebration again this year! Holi is known as the “festival of colors” because it celebrates spring, which is full of colors. Students will be using organic colored powder to throw at each other so please expect your child to be a bit messy (and colorful) at pick up!

Continuing students can begin their search for their team color accessories, and new students will get their team color soon. Field Day t-shirts (thank you KPA!) will be distributed to everyone on that day… expect to have a great time!

Details for teams are in this letter.    Field Day 2019
