Field Day!!

Field Day is coming up on Friday, May 20th. Kindergarten will be participating from

12-2pm. Please help your child be prepared to have the BEST time by following these tips below...


  • Apply sunscreen BEFORE coming to school. Your child's teacher can not do this for them.
  • Wear play clothes and play shoes
  • Bring a refillable water bottle
  • Feel free to wear a hat
  • Bring a towel AND dry clothes to change into after the activities are over (don't forget socks and underwear). There are many water related stations and your child will be getting wet.
  • Put your child's name on EVERYTHING!!


If you completed the paperwork and are volunteering, you will receive an email at the beginning of the week.


If you are just visiting, you must sign in at the front office and you may only take pictures of your child.


If you have any questions, please email Coach Walker at julie.walker@pisd.edu
