Field Day is Friday, May 18th at the north end of Wash Park. In case of bad weather, Field Day will be help on Tuesday, May 22nd. Students in K-2 are beginning their stations promptly at 8:30; these will last until approximately 11:00. Students in 3-5 will begin with the Class Relay at 12:00 sharp. There will be a boys’ race, then a girls’ race, and then classes will break out to their starting stations. The 3-5 stations last until approximately 2:00. The All School 50-yard Dash will conclude the day. The dash will run at 2:20, featuring the fastest student from each of the 3-5 classes.
Students must bring a lunch from home on Field Day. Steele’s cafeteria will not serve lunch. If your student needs lunch, your teacher can arrange a sack lunch to be prepared by the cafeteria.
All students need their own sunscreen, gym shoes, and a full water bottle with their name written on it using a Sharpie. Hats and sunglasses are encouraged. I will not have bottles of water for students or cups at the park. I will have jugs for them to refill their water bottles only. Some classes enjoy a picnic, and that is left up to the teacher. Others eat lunch at Steele. Please check with your child’s teacher for your classroom’s plan.
If you can help with setup, running a station, or breakdown, your help is truly appreciated. Please email me if you can help.
I am very excited for your kids to show off the skills we learned this year. I hope you can take the time to come out to our event.
