We’re excited to announce that our school community will be participating in the OPEN National Field Day event on Friday, May 8th!
Field Day is an important tradition at our school. It is a significant day for our students and our staff, and we feel that in these incredibly challenging times this national event is a unique way that we can stay connected as a community and support one another in a fun and meaningful way.
OPEN (Online Physical Education Network) is a national public service organization that provides curriculum and training support to more than 90,000 teachers in all 50 states. We will be using their resources and social media network to help us organize our school’s participation in #NationalFieldDay.
All #NationalFieldDay events are designed to be done indoors or outdoors using common household items. You aren’t  asked to purchase any specialized equipment or supplies.

 Here’s how it will work:

  • Our school is registered as a participant in this event. Families can choose to register as well, but it’s not a requirement
  • Your family can choose a minimum of 4 events to complete on Field Day. Click here for West Coast Events.  However, you may complete as many events as you’d like.
  • Additional choices and suggestions for events are posted on the P.E. web page (Lessons April 27th – May 1st).
  • From May 3 thru 7, you can follow on FB/Instagram #NationalFieldDay and watch the Field Day Torch travel across the country in preparation for the main event.
  • On May 8, our entire school will participate in events, share photos and videos, and participate nationally on social media using #NationalFieldDay if you choose to do so.
We appreciate your cooperation and are hopeful that your entire family will use it as a fun and meaningful way to be physically active together and with our entire school community.
Stay well!
