LAF news for 3rd graders
FIELD DAY FOOD DRIVE
This year's theme for field day is an Olympic Size Food Drive. We will be collecting canned goods to benefit The Holy Trinity Lutheran Church in East Orange.
Beginning Monday, May 23rd, we will begin a school wide competition between grades. Bins for each grade will be set up by the front entrance. Go for the Gold, Silver, or Bronze and earn extra recess or pajama day for your grade!
Donations will be tallied throughout the competition leading up to field day. You can track your grade's progress on the special Olympic Bulletin Board! Third, Second, First or Kindergarten/ CHIP… who will reach gold first?!
The flowing items are always appreciated (No glad please):
Canned or Dried fruit
Macaroni and Cheese
Pancake or Muffin Mix
Jello or Pudding Mixes
Field Day Reminders
LUNCH- Please don't forget to return your child's Field Day BBQ order form. There will be no other hot lunched served on Field Day. Students may also choose to bring a brown bag lunch. The BBQ is provided for 1st-3rd grades as kindergarten does not stay for lunch.
TEAM COLORS - Students will be bringing home information on which team color they have been assigned. On Field Day, please have your child wear as much of that color as possible. Remember to also dress weather appropriate and apply sun screen as a large portion of the day is outdoors.
