PAC PAW PRINTS

PAC Parent "Party Before the Pick-Up"

Wednesday, March 11, 2:15 pm - 4:15 pm

Please come to a fun "Party before Pick-up" at the Kings Park Library Meeting Room.  We'll have food and drinks, and lots of time to chat with other parents.  Because we pick up at different times, the party is “drop in when you can”, between 2:15 to 4:15.  Plan on staying for the 2 hours, stop in to just to say hi for 15 minutes, or spend any amount of time in between!

The library is only about a block away from GWCS: (map) Left, out the “backdoor” parking lot exit near Exxon onto Rolling Rd, and then right at light onto Burke Lake Road. The Kings Park Library is right around the corner on the right (9000 Burke Lake Road). We hope to see many of you there!

Sincerely,

Your GWCS PAC
