Welcome Back Picnic!

Please come join fellow Palo Verde families for a fun, casual get together on Friday evening, August 28, 6-7:30pm. Pack up a picnic dinner for your family and dine with all of us “al fresco”. The PTA will provide dessert, drinks, and name tags for everyone. Parents have a chance to reconnect with old pals and make new friends at the school. New families can chat with some experienced “old-timers”. Kids run around with each other after hours (and then sleep really well that night). See you there! Would you like to help? Contact Heather Schultz, hschultz (at) hotmail (dot) com.
