May 22nd        View Field Day Pictures Here

Dear Parents/Guardians,

Field day is scheduled for May 22nd. The forecast thus far is showing a chance of isolated thunderstorms, but hopefully the weather will be nice.  If the weather is bad, we will move field day to Wednesday May 23rd .  The decision to post pone field day, if necessary, will be made as early as possible on Tuesday May 22nd. 

     Our team approach will continue for this year. Classrooms will compete with each other, on their grade level, in 10 different events.  To help promote teamwork and to help identify teams, students have earned a color coded Field Day tee shirt.  Each class will be designated and wear a certain color.

   Activities will be located in two areas during the day. The activities will be located in the 4th and 5th grade recess area, as well as on the blacktop.

 

General Rules

 

1.  Each classroom is to stay together the entire day.

         2.  Each classroom is to stay in the assigned area for their activity, or event, until a signal is given to move to the next area.

3.  Classrooms are encouraged to use banners, cheers, songs, and shirts to identify and promote a positive team atmosphere.


Helpful Field Tips

 

    Following are some items that you may want to consider sending with your child on field day:

     Sun Screen Some field days have been very warm and sunny and as we will be outside all day sunscreen can be important.

     Water Bottle students do have some time for drinks and restroom but water bottle can be convenient, as long as they are used appropriately.

     Hat Not necessary, but are allowed.

     Dry Clothes - Not necessary, but if it is warm enough we play a game where students may get wet, so you may send a spare shirt or clothing if you wish

     Money Students get a cup of pop and a bag of chips during field day, however, we always have extra chips and pop that we sell for .25 cents a piece.
