Dear Families,

  Thank you to everyone who helps to make this one of my favorite parts of field day: Noelle Morrow - our dance teacher, Ellie Tahan - our videographer on a ladder, the teachers for joining in, and mostly, the children who amaze me with their ability to learn the dancein just 2 half-hour lessons.

Please use the password "HAMFLASH" and enjoy!
