Field Day!! Volunteers and Team T-Shirt Orders

Tue, 04/09/2019 - 1:26pm

Field Day will be here before you know it!  This is one of the most highly anticipated days of the year by students and staff!  Our PE team is gearing up for an event even bigger than last year if you can believe it--3 more stations, the Maryland Ravens are back again, and **new this year** TEAM RELAY RACES!!  Please see below for information about volunteering for field day and team colors. 


Help us keep our field day tradition alive and going strong year after year!  Volunteers make it possible. 

NES will be hosting our annual field day event on Friday, May 3rd (rain date: Thursday, May 16th). It will be a full day of fun for students in kindergarten through 5th grade. This year's activities include field and blacktop events, a video, an assembly from the Maryland Ravens wheelchair basketball team (with student and staff participation!), and relay races. In order to make field day a continued success year after year, we need MANY volunteers to help facilitate all 36 of our stations. That's three more stations than last year!  No sporting talent is needed and high school/older siblings are welcome to come and help. The sessions are as follows:

Session #1 - Morning Volunteers

 - 7:30 am - 8:30 am

 - Help set up stations and get ready for field day

Session #2 - Kindergarten - 2nd grade

- 8:30 am - 11:45 am (students come out at 9:00 am)

- We are looking for 40 volunteers (or more) for the NES field, the blacktop, and 

Dunloggin field activities. Grades K-2 will be outside during this time.

Session #3 - 3rd - 5th grade

- 12:00 pm - 3:00 pm (students come out at 12:20 pm)

- We are looking for 40 volunteers (or more) for the NES field, the blacktop, and

Dunloggin field activities. Grades 3-5 will be outside during this time.

- We are also looking for 8 volunteers to help with our water stations. We will have 4 tents spread throughout the field and blacktop stations. Two people will be at each tent. One person will fill the water jugs (when needed) and the other person will be able to stay at the tent to help hand out water. We are looking for 8 volunteers for session 2 and 3, so 16 people total!

You can sign up for any of these sessions at All volunteers will receive a confirmation the Friday before Field Day. If you have any questions about Field Day, please contact Mrs. Yingling at (410) 313-2806 or Thank you for your support!
