Ribbon Cutting, Fall Festival Make It a Field Day at Vista La Mesa Academy Ribbon Cutting, Fall Festival Make It a Field Day at Vista La Mesa Academy

The Lemon Grove School District has a full day of celebrations planned Saturday as Vista La Mesa Academy hosts the annual Parents United event, a ribbon-cutting ceremony to open its new field and track, and a fall festival with activities for the whole family.

The day kicks off with a free community breakfast from 9 to 9:30 a.m., followed by two hours of training seminars for parents. Childcare for kids ages 4 to 12 will be provided from 9:30 to 11:45 a.m.

Just before noon, a ribbon-cutting ceremony by district officials will christen the K-8 grade school’s upgraded athletic field, which features improvements such as a new sod field, running track, and par course area, new and resurfaced asphalt, two more basketball hoops, and a drinking fountain funded by Proposition W school bond monies.

The rest of the day will be devoted to plenty of family fun with the annual fall festival in full swing from noon to 5 p.m.

Carnival games, rides and activities are sure to delight all ages—and everyone is welcome to dress up in their Halloween costumes. Some tasty foods will be available for a nominal fee. Admission is $5 per child—but adults are free when accompanied by kids.

All proceeds benefit the VLMA PTA.
