This is a really fun KPA tradition which helps raise money for the 8th grade D.C. trip. Don’t miss out! You don't have to be a KPA student to play.

Teams consist of 6-10 players, and it’s only $20 per player/per team. All teams are encouraged to dress alike along a theme, and you get to choose a theme song and team name. The team with the best theme wins a prize!

The LOB (3rd grade and under) division will start at 4:00. The FLING (7th grade and under) and PEG (spunky grandmas and any other brave souls) divisions will start at 6:00 so play won't affect work or athletics practice.

The concession stand will be open! Come have some fun and support our 8th graders!!
