WBA Virtual Field Day

One of the loved events that we missed this spring is FIELD DAY! Although we could never recreate this event exactly in your home, Coach has pulled together some fun challenges for scholars to participate in for a virtual field day. Our official field day is Friday, May 22nd, however, your scholar can participate whenever and wherever works for your family. We would love to celebrate your scholar's participation and success with the field day events. Please enter their score in the on-line form linked in the handout by Tuesday, May 26 4:00pm so that we can recognize your scholar.

Dear MISD Families,

We are pleased to announce a very special event on Tuesday, May 26, 2020 called Read with Me! Mansfield ISD. This virtual reading marathon will be an entire day to celebrate reading! We have an interactive website available through Classlink and through this link (www.tinyurl.com/ReadWithMeMISD2020) where students can read throughout the day along with virtual read alouds, book crafts, special guest readers and much more! Students must be logged into their @misdmail.net accounts to access the website. Don’t forget to log how many minutes you’ve read so we can reach our district-wide reading goal for the day! Happy reading!
