Grades 4 and 5 will start at 8:25 am and end at 10:25 am. Grades 1, 2, and 3 will start at 11:30 am and end at 2:10 pm (3rd grade will be outside by themselves as a reward for being the top donation grade level in our Halloween Candy Challenge for the last 30 minutes 1:50-2:10 pm).

We will have classes representing different countries from around the world that your children are learning about in their classes.  A parade of nations will begin from student’s classrooms and continue around the track, followed by the presentation of flags on the field. Students will wear accessories, or comfortable clothing, to represent their class’ country for the parade of nations. Our goal is to promote learning about other countries and celebrate the diversity of our world on this celebratory day. Students should wear comfortable clothing and tennis shoes for the days activities as well as sunscreen. Labeled water bottles are also highly encouraged on this day.

The Junior Olympic Games will consist of many stations where small groups will participate in different games and activities. Please consider volunteering for field day to help run stations or set up and/or take down. We can’t have that fun and amazing day without you!
