Track & Field Day - May 28, 2010

Hi everyone,
There are only a few more days left till our Track and Field day! We are all excited. The weather forecast promises a rain-free day. As of today we have received 89 pre-registrations. Everyone is welcome, even though you might not have registered yet.

Please arrive no later than 8:30 a.m. for registration and payment (if not already done).
Everyone will be assigned to their group at 8:45 a.m. , and warm-up starts at 9:00 a.m.

The following events will take place between 9 - 12 a.m.:
Children age 4 and under will participate in special play activities in a designated area (obstacle course, parachute game, etc.)
Children age 5-7: Long jump, ball throw, 50m run, 200m run
Children age 8 and up: Long jump, ball throw, 100m run, 400m run (Girls will be separated from boys and ages divided dependant on number of each age)

A one mile run at 11:45 a.m. is open to anyone (parents as well!).
[A skipping marathon may be held if time remains before lunch. Skipping ropes will be provided.]

Lunch and award ceremony from 12:00 - 1:00 p.m.

The after-lunch (1-2 p.m.) sport options are baseball, soccer, basketball, beach volleyball, and tennis. Younger students who would rather not play a sport can play at the playground or in the play area next to it where there will be an obstacle course, a parachute game, and other activities set up.

Some tables will be set up in a covered area, but please bring your lawn chairs and maybe a picnic blanket, a packed lunch, sun protection items (hat, sunscreen) and plenty of water for the children. Free cookies will be handed out.

Used book and curriculum sale: Please tape a paper strip inside the book cover mentioning your name and selling price. Also prepare an envelope with your name in which the money can be placed once your items are sold and paid for. Please bring in your books for sale to the registration area. Three parents will share the responsibility to organize the book table, selling the books and handling the money. The book table will be open from 10:00 till 1 p.m.

See you soon,

The organizing committee
