Happy Friday!

I hope that you’ve had a great week! I can’t believe how close we are to the end of our first year at East Village Elementary! The year is winding down, but we have lots of fun activities coming up and learning is still taking place!

Field Day is Friday, May 24th!

We are so excited to celebrate the end of our school year with field day! Students will participate in relay races, visit the concession stand, play yard games, and enjoy time with their classmates! Our 5th and 6th grade students will also visit the Railyard for lunch and will view the talent show! The field day will take the majority of the day, so please make sure your child is at school on time!

Things to Know:

  • Field day t-shirts will be passed out on May 23rd! Students should wear their field day t-shirt or another eStem t-shirt.
  • Students can wear athletic shorts or pants and should wear tennis shoes. Shorts should be an appropriate length.
  • Activities will take place in our parking lots, the multi-purpose room, playgrounds, and at the Heifer field. Students will rotate through the events throughout the day.
  • Students are encouraged to apply sunscreen before coming to school and are welcome to wear a hat.
  • Water will be available, but students are encouraged to bring a water bottle with them.
  • We will have sno cones, popcorn, candy, chips, and drinks available for purchase at the concession stand. Each item will be $1. If your child will be purchasing something from the concession stand, please have him or her bring cash.
  • Since students will be going off campus, all students must be in their field day t-shirt or an eStem t-shirt.

If you have any questions about field day, don’t hesitate to reach out to our Activities Coordinator, Mrs. Wirges! We are so excited for this fun event!
