Field PTA Board 

Hello Field Families,

I hope you had a restful and safe long weekend. The snow brightens things up but certainly creates travel headaches. We have just a few weeks of school before winter break. The PTA will be sending a short survey to students about after school classes. Right now, there are no classes offered through Community Education. We have been told that we need to propose class topics as well as teachers to the Community Ed Coordinator in order to start classes at Field. We are hoping that we can work with them to offer students a few choices. If you have class ideas and/or know someone who would be interested in teaching an after school class (e.g. yoga, chess) please contact us!
