For those who haven’t volunteered at Color Day before:

Color Day is a fun day of silly outdoor activities for the whole school.  Each class is split into three teams — red, white, and blue — and the kids participate in activities with their class, like hula hooping, the limbo, and a water bucket relay.  Parents help at each of the activity stations – Color Day couldn’t happen without the parents’ help!  If you stay till the end, you even get to share in the popsicles.

Any questions?  Please email Debra Stump at debra.stump@gmail.com.
