Principal's Message

Dear Field Families,

This week, we welcome Side Streets Project to our campus. Their artists will be working with our third graders in their unique Woodworking Bus. All third grade students will build one functional object. To find out more about Side Street Projects and their community services, please click here.

All K-5 students are invited to participate in the St. Jude Research Hospital Math-A-Thon. Students can help save lives by showing their math skills! Permission slips were distributed last week and need to be returned as soon as possible. The Mat-A-Thon starts on February 8 and it will end February 26. For more information, please contact Ms. Sanchez in the front office.

We have another "new" staff member on our team. Ms. Carol Ko will return to our Field Family as our new Office Manager. She is very happy to come back to Field and I am so excited to work with her again. I would also like to thank Ms. Amanda for filling in as Office Manager since October.

There is no school this Friday, February 12, and Monday, February 15, in honor of President Lincoln and Presidents' Day.

Happy New Year!

Enjoy your week and long weekend!
