What a great day we had today!! Our 'Back to School' Cookout and Field Day went extremely well. I couldn't be more proud of the students who participated and of the staff who helped organize and coordinate today's activites. Not one student had a negative complaint, but they all wore smiles, shared laughs, and enjoyed playing with teachers. Even Mr. Hiller covered the office to answer phones so office staff could eat too.
Extra 'kudos' to Joe Meyer, Ms. Amico, Mr. Bartkowski, and Ms. Tomzak. THANK YOU!
Mr. Meyer and students work the grill. Students enjoyed hotdogs, hamburgers, pasta salad, chips and ice cream.
Northtowns students and staff enjoy a game of kickball.
Hacky sack. Students also participated in scavenger hunts and sidewalk chalk drawing.
