Upper School Field Day
Friday, April 23rd, 2021
“The Legend of the Beaver”
Early this fall, our own Coach Bascom was in the creek area building the raised walkway. He spotted a beaver in a hole, reached down, and picked it up by the tail. The legend of the beaver was born. We’ll celebrate the 2020-2021 school year with commemorative Field Day T-Shirts showcasing our area beaver, wearing his mask, of course.
Field Day T-Shirts will be sold by cash or check ONLY. Use this form to order, and attach payment to form. Orders will be collected every morning in the front entrance area, or may be dropped off at the Front Desk any time by Friday, April 16. NO LATE ORDERS WILL BE ACCEPTED.
We’ll need parent volunteers to make this event possible.
Field Day Dress Code
Due to the athletic nature of Field Day, students will be allowed to wear clothing more appropriate to the day. There are some guidelines we will ask you to adhere to in determining what clothing is acceptable to wear to school on April 23.
Student Lunch on Field Day
Students will have various opportunities for a special lunch on Field Day. Chick-Fil-A sandwiches will be available for purchase for $5/sandwich. Cheese and Pepperoni Pizza slices will be available for $2/slice. Hot lunch will be available to students who need it, but we encourage all students to pack a sack lunch on Field Day, or purchase food from the vendors that day.
Field Day is a day of fun, but rigorous, physical activity! We will have water stations set up outside, but students should be sure to bring water bottles with them to school so that they have convenient access to water whenever they need it.
Rita’s Italian Ice
Rita’s will be on campus on Friday, and all classes will have an opportunity to enjoy a frozen treat for $3. Italian Ice is dairy-free and gluten-free.
We will continue following all COVID-19 safety precautions, even on this fun and exciting day, including mask requirements and providing numerous sanitizing and handwashing opportunities.
Distance Learners – No Zoom
Since all our teachers will be busy engaging their in-person students in a day of fun and healthy outdoor activity, there will be no live Zoom for Distance Learners on Friday, April 23rd. Distance Learners should continue to complete all assigned work on Google Classroom and answer the daily attendance question. We look forward to next year, when the Distance Learners will be back on campus and able to participate in Field Day.
