New Field Day Letter from Mr. Conner: 

Dear Families,
We’re excited to announce that our school community will be participating in the OPEN National Field Day event on Friday, May 22nd!
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 to help us organize our school’s participation in National Field Day.
All National Field Day events are designed to be done indoors or outdoors using common household items. You won’t be asked to purchase any specialized equipment or supplies.
Here’s how it will work:
▪ On May 22, our entire school will participate in events.
▪ Your family will be asked to choose a minimum of 4 events to complete on Field Day. However, you may complete as many events as you’d like to.
▪ After the event, your student will complete the online form at and download the “official field day champion certificate.
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,
Mr. Conner
