What are you Doing this Weekend?
- Eating Henninger Homemade Lemon Sticks: yum!
- Watching PMFS kids dance their heart out: you can dance along.
- Racing your child or another parent on the seven obstacle bounce course: we dare you!
- Being amazed by jugglers: these guys are as good as our Fourth Graders!
- Browsing books: where else would you find your and the kids’ summer reading?
- Enjoying fresh strawberries on top of homemade shortcake: you get this treat but once a year.
- Having fun volunteering at the Strawberry Festival with friends: we all need a little team work!
It’s time to revel in all of the above!
It’s a day for it all. It’s a day to share with your kids, friends, other parents, and family. It’s a day to celebrate the end of the school year, It’s a day for our children to share their campus and community with friends.
