QUICK REMINDERS FOR INDOOR FIELD DAY

What should my student wear on Field Day?

  • Please send your child to school in their Field Day t-shirt or Spirit Wear t-shirt.
  • Shoes should be closed toe – sneakers or swim shoes would be great but no
    open toed sandals or flip-flops.

What should my student bring on Field Day?

  • Sack lunch – there will be no lunch served in the cafeteria on Field Day so
    please make sure and pack your student a sack lunch with their name on it.
  • Water bottle – we want to make sure the students stay properly hydrated
    through the day so please send them with a water bottle labeled with their
    name on it. There will be water stations located through the activities for
    your student to refill their bottle during the day.

We appreciate your support!

A few reminders for parents to make Field Day a success:

* T-SHIRT ORDERS

T-shirts were distributed to the classes during the week of May 18, 2015.

If you volunteered to help us and ordered a volunteer t-shirt,

it will be coming home with your student.

A limited amount of extra t-shirts will be available for purchase this week in the

parent loop before and after school.

* VOLUNTEERS

If you signed up to volunteer for Field Day and haven’t heard from us yet,

chances are we didn’t have an email address for you. Please email us and touch

base with us. It is imperative that every volunteer have a completed background

check on file with main office.

* SACK LUNCHES FOR STUDENTS

Your student will need a sack lunch for Field Day as the cafeteria will not be

serving lunch. Please remember to write your child’s name on their lunch.

We appreciate your support!
