It's back! We are having a picnic! Our 16th Annual Parent Picnic will be Wednesday, October 13. On this day, you are welcome to come to East during your child’s lunchtime and have an old-fashioned picnic style lunch on the lawn. Bring blankets and chairs, picnic baskets, and plenty of food. If you prefer, CNP will be grilling hotdogs & hamburgers, with all the fixings, in the CubCat Café. Bring a lunch, buy a lunch: either way, have lunch with us on the lawn.
