Field Day is an opportunity for students to participate in fun and challenging activities with their class. Your child will be outside in the sun for an extended period of time. Please remember to send them with sunscreen on, a hat, sneakers, loose comfortable clothes and a water bottle labeled with their name. I have been reminding the children about these tips as well. Thanks for all your help and support. This Field Day is sure to be a great success!!!

The 5th Grade vs Staff kickball game will be held on the Fiske baseball diamond at 1:30 p.m. on Monday, June 19th. The entire school will be able to watch this fun and exciting game. Please send your child to school with sunscreen on and a hat that day as they will be out for an extended period of time. Grade 5 students will wear their class t-shirts for this fun event!

Thanks again for all your help,
Christina Gerst
Fiske Fitness and Health Teacher
