Field Days - Parents of First through Fourth Grade Students

Field Days is right around the corner for 1st – 4th grade students and we are excited to implement some new changes this year!  We will be hosting 1st – 4th grade field days on Friday, May 26 on the main campus at McNair Elementary School. 

We are combining both Simon and McNair field days into one day at McNair in hopes to get more volunteers involved since this will be a one day event for both schools. Our fifth grade students will be on a field trip that day to Wild West Town and Pre – K will enjoy a separate play day!

In order to make this day successful for your children, we will need lots of volunteers on May 26.  If you are interested in volunteering (parents, grandparents, or other adults over the age of 18) please call the McNair Elementary School office at 815.335.1607 to sign up or send an email to Miss Miller or Mr. Flynn. When leaving a message please include the following information:  your name, your child’s name and grade level, and a phone number in case we need to contact you.  If there is a certain event you would like to assist with or work with a specific volunteer, please give that information as well. 

All volunteers should report to the McNair playground at 8:30 a.m. for instructions of the day’s activities and event assignments.  All events will conclude approximately at 2:15 p.m.  If you are volunteering, please bring a sack lunch, or you may choose to leave campus, as you’ll have approximately 50 minutes for lunch.  This day is only successful if we have enough volunteers!  Without you, the students would not be able to participate in a variety of events and they look forward to this day each year!    We would like to thank PTO for sponsoring this event by purchasing additional equipment so that we are able to implement some new and exciting events while still having some of our traditional events!  PTO has generously donated over $2800 for new equipment, as well as awards for all of our students.  During field days, second grade will also visit the third grade classrooms, meet the teachers, and tour the building in order to make the transition to McNair smoother as they start the school year in the fall!     If you have any questions feel free to contact either of us at the above email addresses or by phone through the school offices at our respective buildings! We look forward to your help with this awesome event!   Sincerely,
Joe Flynn and Tracy Miller
