Play Day - this Thursday!

This Thursday, May 7, is the 4th grade Play Day at Fossil Ridge high school. Coach Hernandez and the others involved with planning Play Day will be closely monitoring the weather this week and will reschedule Play Day if needed due to weather. We will keep you posted on this decision!

Students will need a sack lunch and are encouraged to bring MORE food than normal! They are competing in events all day, and all that exercise leads to hunger! Be sure to pack water or Gatorade! Also, if the weather cooperates, don't forget to pack sunscreen!

Please let us know if you have any questions or concerns regarding this day!

This is NOT the Science Fair that is part of your child's project! This is a fun night at NRES where you and your child can do hands-on science experiments at different tables in the cafeteria! Come and have some fun, all while learning new things!
