My Students

My students are cheerful, outgoing, have lots of energy, and have complete confidence in themselves. They look forward to playing all day with fun and exciting equipment with their friends.

They are eager to have fun during the school's field day.

The field day equipment will give the students the opportunity to be active while playing many fun and new games. There is nothing more wonderful than seeing students smiling as they jump, roll, skip, and run at the park.

My Project

Think back on your Field Day events from your school days. What do you remember? Many of you will remember how much fun you had, the games you played, and spending time with your classmates. Field Day is a great chance for students to let loose, get active, and have a good time. And at the end of the day, it is all about creating a memorable experience.

Field Days are the spring celebrations that students look forward to all year long.

Students rotate to different stations monitored by volunteers and engage in physical activity, collaborate with their peers, and participate in challenging and fun activities. These activities are usually different than those they may have played during their physical education class and recess time throughout the year.

Field Day acts as a marker of a passage in time. It is a celebration of another school year gone by. It gives the students something to look forward to, and it is almost a proverbial archway to summer. Field Day gives everyone something to mark an important time in the year with and something to look forward to!

Field day is an opportunity for us to showcase our program and our students to showcase their skills. Field Day is a time for us to show what physically-literate children look and sound like. Our students need this equipment to have fun, play with friends, and show off their skills. With the parachute, students can play popcorn and space mountain. Hurdles show the students their running and jumping skills. And the cooperative bands encourage teamwork. I want to provide a lasting memory for our students. By donating to this project, you will help put smiles on the faces of our students.
