Family Party on the Yard: Pizza! Potluck! Games!

When: Tuesday, September 17, 2019 from 6:00 – 7:30pm
Games Night — a community favorite — is back … and this year, we’re amping it up: it’s a pizza party and potluck, too! Join the fun on the Yard … plus dinner:
enjoy PTA-provided (free!) pizza (plus plates, utensils, napkins)
please bring a dish to share: 

grades K-3, bring salad, fruit, or other “side” dish
grades 4-8, bring a dessert

(no nuts, please; label gluten free)
Please bring beverages for your family: Reminder: alcohol is not allowed on school grounds.
Seating for eating will be limited; if you have littles, you may want to bring a blanket. Pizza is first-come-first-served. We will have some meat-free pizzas, but those with other food limitations may want to bring items that meet their family’s needs. 
Hillcrest friend Coach T will be back as our special guest to lead families in games like Four-Square, Duck Duck Goose, Tag and Switch! The whole family is invited.
