2 liter soft drinks (regular or diet) for our Ring Toss game for Field Day.

Drinks will be stored in the gym office, so please make sure that your child knows to bring it with them when they come to PE or, if any drinks are dropped off at the front office, that office staff is aware that the donation should be sent to PE.
