Field Day for grades 3-5 was held today! The weather was great and the children had a great time. (And I may have gotten carried away with the hose!)
Events today included:
Run for the Roses
Ask your child how each event was played!
The K-2 Field Day went smoothly today! We had great weather! So many parents and teachers helped out to make it a great day! Thank you to all who made it successful.

Interesting article about the use of a family media plan.
Students were allowed to choose from a bunch of different equipment. Equipment included playground balls, frisbees, sack races, parachutes (large and small), slingshots, Skip-Its, and various other items. These choices are good for this time of year as they generally are played with little running, which is good with the high temperatures. We will continue with these choices for a few days. Ask your child which equipment they used today!
Field Day is Friday! Please make sure your child comes to school with water to drink, sunblock on, and perhaps a change of clothes!
Students continued playing the Barbeque Games listed in the previous blog post. We stayed inside due to the field being wet. We hope to continue playing these games outside tomorrow on the soccer field.
Some self-induced computer errors led to few blog postings the last week. Sorry for that.
This crazy wet weather pattern has led to a lot of indoor activities. It also has led to us potentially not being able to run our Spring Run for time. If you recall, we ran in the fall and then also do the spring to compare times. It was nice a few days last week, but the route is too wet to run. We need a week of dry weather, but time is running out. If we end up not being able to run the Spring run for time, you will see a time of 0.00 on the final report card.
We began our Barbeque Games (also called Backyard Game) on Monday, usally an outdoor activity, inside our big gym. It's a little tight, but we were able to setup the following games.
Ask your child which games they prefer best!
