Beautiful Weather + Amazing Volunteers and Students = A Perfect Field Day
Campanelli staff and students had a great time at our annual Field Day on Monday, May 23rd!

He incorporated fun, challenging activities for all of our grade levels. In addition, a huge thank you to the PTA for their help organizing the volunteers, the numerous parent volunteers who “manned” stations, and the entire staff for a successful day. We hope you enjoy the pictures below that captured the fun had by all!
