The Kona Ice Truck is coming to Corley!

Corley Elementary is selling Kona Ice to raise funds to support the installation of a new gym floor. Each shaved ice treat costs $3. Cash only


2nd and 3rd Grade- Wednesday May 19th

4th and 5th Grade- Thursday May 20th

K and 1st Grade- Friday May 21st

Field Day is right around the corner! We are going to be playing some fun and exciting team games. Your child should have come home with a t-shirt flyer (Kindergarten- 4 grade) to order their field day shirt. The shirts are $6 each and you can pay with cash to your child's teacher or online at My Payments Plus.


Field day will look a little different this year than in the past. The day will consist of different stations that each class will go to and play the activity. There will not be any volunteers/parents to come out and help or watch their child perform the games. Each student will need to bring their own bottle of water.


The dates are as followed:

Wednesday, May 19- Kindergarten and First Grade

Thursday, May 20- Second and Third Grade

Friday, May 21- Fourth and Fifth Grade


Thanks,

Mrs. Hodnette
