Track and Field Day is part of the physical education program. It consists of three days where students go down to the stadium on their assigned day with their grade and participate in individual and group activities. The students will be introduced to the activities in gym class. Then the students will choose which activities they want to participate in and they will practice them in gym class.

4th-5th-6th Grades: May 13th
2nd-3rd Grades: May 14th
Kindergarten-1st Grades: May 15th
Raindate: May 16th
Children are asked to dress according to the weather. Shorts can be worn underneath long pants in case of very warm weather. Please see that the children are properly protected from the sun. Children must wear the T-shirt provided by the PTA. Please use sunscreen on your child regardless of the weather.
In the event of inclement weather, contact the elementary office for a possibility of postponement of the activities. Postponement is sometimes necessary for the safety of all students due to wet and slippery conditions on the bleachers and grass.
Attendance will be taken at the school. Students who are absent because of illness or other reasons are not permitted in the stadium on the days of the events.
The activities will be on the football field. Parents are NOT ALLOWED on the field for any reason (video taping, etc.) or around the fence. Therefore, parents should be seated in the bleachers. The reason for this is while some students are participating on the field, others will be participating in the track events and we cannot have any interference. Your cooperation is greatly appreciated.
Parents are not permitted to provide snacks or refreshments to their children or any other children in fairness to those children whose parents are unable to attend. Water will be provided throughout the day.
Students can bring a drink with them to the field as long as it is in a plastic bottle with a lid. (no soda). Please write your child’s name on the bottle.
Parents must report to the teacher in case of an emergency. All children will be dismissed as usual from school at the regular time.
No child is to be taken away from his/her class or from the stadium for any reason other than an emergency. The parent(s) must notify the main office before a child can leave.
Students are responsible for all belongings (sunscreen, clothing, lunch, etc.).
