Awesome Field Day!
We erred on the side of caution with the weather and all had an amazing time for Field Day! The combination of inside and outside activities, along with an awesome magic show made it a fun day for all. It's so much fun to see so many happy children! Thank you so much to the PTA for all they did to make Field Day happen. Terri Miller and Laura Goldstein worked tirelessly to make it a wonderful event. Thank you to all of the volunteers that joined us and for the music from the rocking DJ, Steve Keck! In addition, the military volunteers from Fort Story made the Boot Camp quite an attraction and the children loved seeing all of them as they were motivated to complete each station.
John B. Dey is so fortunate to have such kind and involved parents and fabulous children. Once again, tThank you for your continued partnership in their education.
Let's hope the sun shines this weekend and everyone gets outside!
