2018 NES Field Day
It is hard to believe that we are already at the point in our school calendar when we start talking about one of the best days of the school year, FIELD DAY! Our 2018 Northfield Field Day is right around the corner on Thursday, May 17th (rain date: Friday, May 25th). This is a full day of physical fitness activities, team work, and fun. Our Physical Education team plans a fantastic, full day event for our students to enjoy. It takes a lot of planning and coordination, but at the end of the day, we know it is worth it because students will remember it for many years to come. In order to make this day a success, we will need many volunteers. We will be sending out a link to sign up to volunteer on Friday in the Northfield News.
In order to build team spirit and camaraderie among grade level teams, all students will be asked to wear a specific color t-shirt on Field Day. This also helps us to identify which grade level is where on the field. Our PE team is excited that we will be offering field day t-shirts for purchase in the specific team colors. Parents do not need to purchase a t-shirt for this event. This is completely optional. T-shirt colors for next year will move up to the next grade with students if you want to order a size up for students to wear the shirt again at next year's field day. For example, this year, 4th graders are wearing orange. Next year, when they are 5th graders, they will still be asked to wear orange again. Students can wear any school and weather appropriate top that they wish, ideally in their team color. Students will receive a paper flyer/order form in school, but you can also download a copy of the form below. Due to the quick turn around needed for this order, all orders must be placed online by May 2nd. We will not be able to accept orders or payment in school and orders can't be accepted after this date.
