Keeping up with Kindergarten vol.22

Mrs. Van, Mrs. Houston, Mrs. Nunes, Mrs. Neely

Dear Kindergarten and PreK Parent(s):

Ride's annual Field Day is quickly approaching. We recommend that your child wears comfortable clothes, applies sunscreen, and brings a labeled water bottle.

Each student will be teacher-paired into a “buddy group.” The buddies and a parent volunteer will work together to complete various cooperative, competitive, and active events. Groups are free to complete the events in any order they like. The following is a schedule for the day’s activities.

A representative from your child’s classroom might contact you requesting volunteers to chaperone a group of kinder / preK students. For those of you with additional children at Ride, please be aware that parents who volunteer to lead a Field Day event for the school may not concurrently volunteer to “chaperone” a group of students. K and PreK chaperones will report to the classroom at 10:35am. No spectators, please. We are looking forward to an active, student-focused event!

Thank you,

Bridget Hodge and Laura Matthews
