2nd quarter's "Out of Office" experience for Dr. Jones brought him back to the Sunflower kitchen to help prepare and serve breakfast and lunch. The last time he worked in the kitchen he was accused of being too skimpy on the cinnamon for cinnamon twists. We're calling it a success because this time only one student wanted more cinnamon on their bread today!

Field Day at Sunflower is this Friday! Your students will participate in outdoor stations from 9:00-11:15 and then again from 1:00-3:00 (Kindergarten 2:00-3:00). A couple of the afternoon stations will also have water involved, but not so much that a swimsuit or change of clothes are needed. You're welcome to send a towel with your child that day if you want to. Please apply sunscreen at home before school so students aren't applying it at school. We're hoping for a dry and partly sunny day!!
