Field Day

As many of you know, Field Day 2012 was a great success! It was a gorgeous day, students were on their best behavior, and there were many fun activities ready for us at Airport Park. Enjoy the photos!

Tammie Wirtz took  many great photos which can be accessed by clicking here: More Field Day Photos

I could not figure out an efficient way to include them in my existing slideshow, but she captured some excellent moments, including the class surprising me with a scrapbook of their memories of me and the school year. I was touched!

I will send an email sometime this weekend with details about the last day of school and I will try to do another blog post if time allows. Have a great weekend!

Decorating T-Shirts

Thank you for sending in a white t-shirt to decorate for field day on Wednesday. Students spent some time on Friday signing each other's t-shirt, and the teachers spent some time Friday (and over the weekend) spray dying them! Originally, I wanted students to help with the spray dye. But, after a trial run, I realized they would come home with more than just their field day shirt dyed--it's a messy process!

The results look pretty good in my estimation. You'll get a sneak peak below, but we'll be sure to take lots of photos when we're wearing them at field day. Your child will wear his/her shirt home that day too.

Remember, if you want to join us for field day on Wednesday, June 6th, the activities will start around 9:30 a.m. and our lunch time is at 11:30 a.m. Let's hope for dry weather!

Drying on my back porch. :-)
