Rancho Santa Fe School to hold Field Day

Students at R. Roger Rowe School look forward to Field Day all year long and this year it is going to be another fun-filled day. On Friday, May 25, from 8:30 a.m.-noon, there will be activities for all elementary grade levels on different areas of the school field. Students will take part in hurdles, obstacle courses, jumping and throwing events, along with gunnysack races and three-legged partner races.

Field day recognizes students in the area of athletics and gives the opportunity for team play, healthy competition and good outdoor recreation as part of the complete physical education program at the school.

Traditionally, on a Friday shortened to a half day, Field Day is a fun-filled celebration of school spirit. Students proudly exhibit school colors and wear school spirit wear, which has been available for purchase at school events throughout the year.

R. Roger Rowe is doing their part to Go Green this year by doing away with individual water bottles. This will eliminate the waste of 700 plastic bottles.  Please bring your own water for the day in a large REUSABLE container. There are water fountains on the field and playground for anyone who forgets and for refills, but we will not be providing plastic water bottles or cups.

The day would not be as successful if it weren’t for all of the wonderful volunteers. The school is still looking for more volunteers to help with the activities and donate food items. To sign up, please go to: http://www.signupgenius.com/go/field468

The RSF Education Foundation and its parent volunteers organize the event. The Education Foundation thanks its sponsors, The Village Market and Rancho Sandwich. The Village Market will be providing otter pops and ice. Rancho Sandwich will be selling frozen yogurt for $2 with 25 percent of revenue going to the Education Foundation. Granola bars, oranges and watermelon will also be available at the picnic tables.

Please remind your children to wear sunscreen.

•Grades K-1 activities will be held on the K-1 playground led by JW Tumbles. These fun activities will include water balloon frenzy, memory maze, hurdles and a scavenger hunt.
