Thank you to all parents and volunteers for another successful Field Day on Friday. We braved the sprinkles, enjoyed the overcast weather and weren’t afraid to get a little dirty with our friends! We are humbled by the support of the community to make Cloverdale a fantastic place to grow and learn.
