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

From pancakes to carnival rides, the day has plenty of family fun on tap Saturday at the school.

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.
