Submitted by Peggy Lew on Jun 10 (last updated Jun 14)

These playdates will be very informal – just an opportunity for the kids to run around, have some fun, and meet some of their new classmates, and for parents to get to know each other as well. Returning families are welcome. Feel free to bring blankets, snacks, balls and/or other outdoor toys.
