2018 Field Day + Sports-A-Thon

Field Day is coming April 25 & 27!  For Field Day 2018 we are incorporating a Sports-A-Thon to raise funds and help "close the gap" for Foundation.  As many of you are aware, the Foundation has a $30,000 gap in funds this year. These funds are critical for paying for our Science Lab and Technology Lab Teachers’ Salaries.

To assist in closing this gap, we have partnered with the National Academy of Athletics to have a Sports-A-Thon on Field Day!  Sports-A-Thon is a school-wide event for students where they practice their goal-kicking skills and raise some money in the process. 

Students will rotate through fun Field Day water stations and wacky sports-themed stations. At the soccer goal station, students will have 8 attempts to kick goals and each goal made will count toward their Sports-A-Thon pledge.  All students will participate in all stations.  

Dates to Remember:

  • Wednesday, April 18 – Sports-A-Thon Pep Rally @ 1-1:30pm
  • Friday, April 20 – Your student(s) bring in their Fan/Sponsor Pledge Forms to their Homeroom Teacher. Please have all pledge forms turned into Homeroom Teachers by Tuesday, April 24. 
  • Wednesday, April 25 – 3rd-5th Grade Field Day/Sports-A-Thon 🚩 
  • Friday, April 27 – PreK-2nd Grade Field Day/Sports-A-Thon 🚩 
  • Monday, April 30 – Sponsors receive an email from sportsathon@nationalacademyofathletics.com with their PayPal invoice from Sports-A-Thon.
  • Friday, May 4 – Final date to make payment for Sports-A-Thon pledges and donations. ALL payments must be received by this date for your student(s) to be eligible for the All-Star Party. 
  • Thursday, May 10 – All Star Party for students who raise a minimum of $50 (payments must be received for eligibility); Prizes based on pledges/donations will be distributed!

A few things to keep in mind:

  • Water activities are happening! 💦 Please have your student wear his/her class t-shirt, bring a towel, a change of clothes and shoes, and their water bottle on their Field Day/Sports-A-Thon. Please put sunscreen on your student BEFORE coming to school. 
  • Lost your pledge form or need more?  Click HERE and look for the download link under the FAQ section.
  • Ms. Janas needs 6 sprinklers, hoses and hose splitters💦 If you have any of these items you’d be willing to lend for the Field Days/Sports-A-Thon, please EMAIL her.
  • Parent Volunteers are needed!  Please click HERE to signup and join the FUN! 😄 

Thank you in advance for your support, and we look forward to seeing all the students have a fun, active day!

For more information and questions click HERE.  Look for more communications to come through your student’s folder, PawPrints newsletter, Room Rep emails, and on our Mountain View PTA & Foundation Facebook Page.
