Field Day at the Elementary School

Dear parents,

Thursday, May 14, 2015, we will host our annual Elementary School Sports Day at the upper soccer field. This event will center around activity stations offering sport-related and playful assignments. Teachers will accompany the classes.

Setting-up and supervision of each station requires the active participation of 2 to 3 parents from each class. Parents willing to help, please contact Ms. Scholl or Ms. Bohn by email no later than May 11, 2015 ( /

Parents volunteering for the event will meet for briefing and set-up at 7:30 am on May 14, 2015 at the entrance door of the Elementary School gym.

To supply all students all students with additional refreshments, we ask parents to please contribute healthy finger food suitable to be eaten on  the sports field. In the past, parents kindly brought bite-size vegetables and dip, cut-up fresh fruit or crackers. Considering the outdoor nature of this event, please avoid bringing perishable food. Your child should still bring her/his normal breakfast snack. The Elementary School will provide water.

Please think about sunscreen and a hat or baseball cap for your child that day.

We look forward to seeing you there!


 B.Scholl and C.Bohn (Head of ES Sports Department and Organizing Team)
