Field PTA Board 


Dear Field Community,
March was an amazing community building month as students, parents and teachers gathered to celebrate our student's musical talents and enjoy great ice cream at the Ice Cream Social. The students  danced  the night away along with some dedicated teacher and parent volunteers at the Spring Black and White Dance. Thankfully, this was all followed by a restful Spring Break, and now we've launched into the last quarter of the year. 
This month holds much in store with multiple volunteer opportunities available. Field will be having our annual spring clean-up April  22rd. Speaking of landscaping Field is in need of a chair for our landscaping committee as Garett  Fuerniss' family will be moving on to high school next year. Thank you so much to the Fuerniss family for all you have done for Field the last four years.  You may not know this but they are largely responsible for the new playground equipment  that was installed last April!  
Spring also means the Hale & Field plant sale!  Thank you to Cindy Goehring for all her hard work throughout the years by pulling off this fun and important fundraiser for both our schools. 
Don't forget the last day to place orders is April 14th.
I would also like to thank Christine Carney and Eve Willadsen-Jensen along with our Field Student council kids and their teacher leaders, Lonna Wilson for all their work with Field's Hygiene drive.

PTA Co chair
