  • field day

    Dear Parents/Guardians,

    This Wednesday, June 5th is 4th grade field day. Please make sure your child has his/her school colors on (South Davis t-shirt/ sweatshirt or any t-shirt/ sweatshirt in school colors).  Room parents are organizing healthy snacks and water bottles/juice boxes.  Your child is still encouraged to bring his/her own water bottle.

    Students will start their warm-ups at 9:30 a.m. Lunch break will be around 12:25 and students will be back on the field by 1:25 for student and parent stations. Field day will end at approximately 2:30. You may sign your child out at that time or he/she may remain in school until normal dismissal time. We hope this helps in planning for your day!
