Dear Awbrey Park Families,

If you have not already done so, the deadline is tomorrow to reserve your food for the TailgaterEither send in your confirmation or email me back by the end of school tomorrow.  We want an accurate count so that we have enough food.  The Sanipac Duck Truck will be here rocking “The Park.” They are also providing a hot dog, chips, cookies, and water free of charge.  Thank you Sanipac!  Students will eat and then play tailgating games. It will be awesome!
