DVS Virtual Field Day
The following slides contain all of the information you will need to participate in our Virtual Field Day. This year field day is broken up into 15 different events. The equipment you will need for these events can be found around the house; laundry baskets, paper plates, socks rolled up to make balls, etc. (there is a complete list of the equipment you will need on the next slide.) Families may decide to participate in all 15 events, or pick and choose the ones that work best for them. The goal of today is to have fun, be active, and enjoy time together.
Thank you for making this a special day for your student(s)
It takes a village!
Field Day Information
This year a Virtual Field Day will take place on Wednesday, June 3. Field day is an annual event organized by the Physical Education teacher in partnership with the PTA. Field day gives students a chance to show their parents, teachers, and classmates all of the skills they have learned in P.E. throughout the year. Many students view field day as a celebration; it marks the end of another school year and is a chance to put away the schoolwork and spend time with people they care about.
Traditionally, parent volunteers help run games and activities alongside teachers and staff, but this year it’s all you! I know that sounds like a lot, but don’t stress! This year a Virtual Field Day has been created to include 15 separate events or activities. Each activity can be played either inside or outside in minimal space, using materials you already have around your house.
Attached to this message you will find a slideshow that contains all of the information you will need to host a fun-filled day complete with directions, materials lists, and helpful videos. Some families may decide to participate in all of the activities, others may pick and choose the ones that work best for them - no matter what you decide, remember, this day is a celebration for your student(s).
This is not a mandatory event and there will be no sort of “check in.” Keeping score is just for fun and families have a choice to participate in the activities at their leisure. If Wednesday doesn’t work for you, maybe you’d like to wait for the weekend instead. If you do choose to participate and you take any photos (that you wouldn’t mind sharing) you can email them to Ms. Studer at firstname.lastname@example.org she will put together a slideshow to share with families.
Thank you for helping to make this day one your student(s) will never forget!
