 FROM THE CO CHAIR
 

Many of us remain nostalgic for that "back to school" feeling all our lives. It's a unique time when we experience both the comfort of the familiar and the excitement of starting something new.
 
It's in that spirit I would like to welcome you to Field's 2017-2018 school year.
 
I hope you'll find information in this newsletter each month to comfortably guide your Field mice throughout the year, while at the same time taking advantage of new opportunities to both give back and forge connections within the community.
 
We promise to be respectful of your time (and attention span!) each month. In turn, please remember that PTA activities and fundraisers play a vital role in keeping Field vibrant and healthy and try to skim the info shared when you have the time.
 
Best wishes to you and your family for a year of "comfortable excitement." I hope it'll be filled with many memorable adventures.

PTA Co-chair

Flu Shot Clinic October 10
Mark your calendars! This year's flu shot clinic for Hale and Field students, family members and community is Tuesday October 10 from 2:30 pm - 6:00 pm in the Field gym. 

Please print and fill out the registration form and bring it with you, one form for each person who intends to be vaccinated. Fill in the clinic number with 40654 on in the upper right of the first form.

Please bring your current insurance cards and photo ID along with your completed form.

Please wear clothing that allows for easy access to your upper arm. If this is your first flu shot you will be asked to wait for 15 minutes after your vaccination for observation. 
Here's to a healthy school year!

Box Tops 
Start saving your box tops for Field school. Field can earn extra money from simply clipping box tops from grocery items you use everyday!  Put them in a ziploc bag and drop them off at the office by October 27. For a list of products, or to learn more about the program check out the box tops website.

Field Spirit Wear
Spirit wear information is coming soon. We will have some fun new styles to order from. Spirit wear makes a great gift and is fun to wear to school or out and about to show your Field pride!
