Secondary Field Day, May 29, 2014

IMG_0031

Dear Parents and Guardians,

This year, secondary field day will be held on Thursday, May 29th. For field day, we have set up a catered hot lunch for all students.

Your students will receive:

  • a hamburger
  • a bottle of water
  • a slice of watermelon
  • a bag of chips and
  • a cookie!

If your student would like something else, we encourage you to pack them a sack lunch as there will be no hot lunch deliveries for the entire week.

Please remember that your students will be getting wet, so no white clothing. Students may wear swimsuits, but they must have clothing over them at all times. Dress code will still be enforced during field day, so make sure any shorts are of appropriate length and no spaghetti straps or midriff bearing shirts are worn.

Students will be outside from 10 am – 3 pm; please cover them with sunscreen before they come to school. Do not send sunscreen to the school. Lastly, please send them with a towel so they can dry off when they head inside to eat their lunch.

If your student has been suspended at any point during the 2013-2014 school year, they are ineligible to participate in any field day activities. If they come to school on May 29th, they will be completing a campus beautification project.

We are in need of the following items, and ask the following grades to bring them in:

  • Cases of Water Bottles—6th and 7th Grade
  • Single Serving Chip Bags—8th and 9th Grade
  • Cookies (Store Bought Only) – 10th, 11th, and 12th Grade
  • Canopies

Volunteers are needed to help make field day successful! If you would like to volunteer your time, please go to the following link:

and follow the directions to the volunteer form. Also, please ask your student’s teachers if there is anything else they need for the games that they have planned for the students!

Volunteer note: Siblings/friends of students may not attend.  Field Day is for EKA students only.

We hope that your students will have a blast at this year’s field day!
