Field Day and Not MY Kid

By | Coming Events, Sports | No Comments

Field Day for K-5 is Thursday, April 25th and for 6-8th it is Friday, April 26th!

For grades 3-8: Students will be allowed to bring shorts and t-shirts to change into for field day. Please, have them also bring water bottles, hats, sunscreen and tennis shoes. There will be some games that include water so some students may get just a little wet. They will change into uniforms after their field day.

(Check our April posting history for more details on notMYkid.)

Everyone thinks “Not _MY_ Kid” but…

Not MY Kid is a foundation that offers information and resources on drugs and alcohols to parents, as well as presentations to our 6th-8th grade students on many different topics. PACS and Not MY Kid are proud to offering another Parent Information Night on Thursday, April 25th from 5:45 to 6:45 PM. Please attend the English or Spanish meeting to learn about topics that affect our students! Each parent that attends will get a free Drug Test Kit just for showing up.

At the same time, in a different room, PACS will be showing a family-friendly movie so that parents do not have to worry about child care in order to come to the notMYkid program.
