Annual CISD PTO Dads’ Clubs’ Cricket Challenge

*** New Date! Saturday, June 6th, 2015 at 8:30 AM ***

Due to the excessive amount of rain we have received recently, and more in the forecast tonight, we are rescheduling the 2015 Cricket Challenge to Saturday June 6th at 8:30AM. We hope the fields will have drained and be ready to play by then. We are also hopeful this will allow more of you to participate in this important fund raiser; we need your participation to make this event a success!

Though the weather threatened to delay the 2015 VRE Field Day, it held off long enough to let the kids get outside and play water games, slip down water slides, jump on bounce houses, and laugh with their friends. Eventually the rain arrived after lunch and the kids were forced to go inside as a safety precaution but by that time they had already had a memorable day as evidenced by the photos below and a few more in the gallery.

Thanks to several dads who came out and helped setup and run the event including Bennie, Sridar, Raj, Ravi, Kirin, Mahdu, Greg and several others who’s names I can’t remember right now. Also a big thanks to Gio for taking the lead and organizing the event. The kids had a great time and really appreciated all the parents, teachers and staff who made this event a success.  I appreciate all of you who came out and helped; these events form many of your child’s school memories and we couldn’t do it without you!

Gentlemen,

The PTO urgently requires volunteers for the field day at VRE tomorrow. Currently they have LESS THAN HALF the number of volunteers required. These events are just as important as classroom instruction to your child’s education and can’t happen without your help.  Specifically, a few more dads are needed to help setup before school and run games in the morning, and then several more are required after lunch to help with the games and tear down and clean up after the event concludes. So please take some time off from work and spend it with your child.

Go to this link to volunteer.

NOTE: as of this moment the PTO is still planning to hold the Field Day event tomorrow however it may be postponed to next Friday if it continues to rain or thunderstorms are present in the morning.

Sincerely,
VRE Dads’ Club
