Porter Elementary School

Week of May 17th, 2016

Field Day is May 20th!

A informational letter went home regarding field day and the fun activities that your child will be participating in. Please remember to put sunscreen on your child ahead of time as teachers and staff will not be able to do that at school. Also, we will have water activities, you may send extra clothes for your child to change into after the activities are completed. All students will have time to dry off a bit before going home. No swimsuits are allowed at field day!


We are excited about our field day and hope that many parents can attend and enjoy the day as well. Please remember to bring your ID as you must get a visitors tag at the front office prior to attending.
