FIELD DAY IS COMING ON JUNE 15! Most Fun Volunteer Event of the Entire Year!


Mark your calendar for a day of fun at Fort River School, on Wednesday, June 15, 2016.  Field Day is a school wide event that allows the children to get outside for sun and fun. This year, Kids in grades 1-6 will participate in field day together (from 9-11:30am) in multi-aged groups to build school unity across grades.  

Kindergarteners will have their own special stations from 10-10:45 am.  

Groups will rotate through a variety of outdoor activity stations on the fields/playground where kids will work together and have fun.

The day will work like this:
9-11:30 Grades 1 – 6 (for the entire morning)
10-10:45 Kindergarteners join in the fun
11:30 Picnic lunch (bring your own or purchase cafeteria lunch)

We will need lots of parent volunteers to make field day a huge success. Parents can volunteer as an activity station worker or a group leader; parents can help set up or clean up.  Volunteers can sign up on the “Bring It” section of the Ft. River blog ( or by filling out the form linked below and leaving it in the PGO mailbox, or by emailing Rebecca Kennedy at or Tim Hope at
