Lea Day
Henry C. Lea School staff is proud to present our annual field day event — “Lea Day” — for our students, families, and staff on Thursday, May 30th throughout the school day. On Lea Day, students and staff will participate in outdoor games in the big schoolyard, “Minute-To-Win-It” games in the gym, classroom activities such as games and movies in their homeroom classrooms, and snack breaks in the small schoolyard (ice cream and soft pretzels).
