Rain Date: Friday, May 19, 2017

Join us for a Movie Mania themed field day as students celebrate the end of another great year. Activities will include games that celebrate some of the kids’ favorite movies, as well as other crazy games that will keep them moving and laughing. Plus, we’ll have our special “Hollywood”-inspired photo booth. Students will play together, enjoy the benefits of exercise and spend quality time outdoors in one of two sessions:

Morning: 9:00-11:00 (Grades 3, 4 & 5)

Afternoon: 1:15-3:15 (Grades Full-day K, 1 & 2)

**Half-day Kindergarten will have a separate Field Day activity and volunteer coordination**

Prairie Point Field Day would not be possible without the help of our wonderful volunteers!

We have created an online volunteer sign up at:
