Elementary Field Day Filled With Physical Activities and Water Fun ( Momimhar posted on May 26th, 2017 )
K’s school had it’s yearly Field Day this morning. All elementary students were geared up and excited for this amazing day to show their physical capabilities on fun games and to enhance their social development and sportsmanship.
The event was held at the high school athletic facility. Students, together with their respective teachers, facilitating staff, and attending parents gathered at the athletic field for a great day of fun.
The activities/sports were facilitated according to stations. Each station had at least three assigned coordinator so the children were well-guided at these games: Bouncy Ball Race, Sponge Water Splash, Relay Race, Soccer game, and the classic game of Tug-O-War.
K enjoyed the bouncy ball race and the sponge water splash most. She didn’t get the chance to guard the goal and got to kick the ball only once at the soccer game. But she had fun playing. That’s the most important part of the Field Day. Having fun. Then we had a picnic lunch under the bleachers because it’s shady and the wind was very refreshing. Then we had Kona Ice after lunch. Yay!
The school was prompt sending announcements about this special event. We were well-prepared for the Field Day. It’s a hot cloudy day and the wind was blowing pretty hard. We brought:
- Extra clothes
Another memorable and fantastic day today. 🙂
What a week. Since I started going back to work, as a substitute teacher at my daughter’s school, my house has become unorganized. I had two pending Balikbayan boxes which I just shipped out this Saturday. Then I have more stuff left for another box to be shipped out to my family in the Philippines before my nieces and nephews go back to school in June. School is out end of this month so they will be in summer vacation starting April 1st.
I started as a substitute teacher at K’s school February this year. I subbed in a few classes in Kindergarten, in First Grade, and in Fourth Grade. The recent sub position I took was for the Librarian Aide. So I worked at the library for three days. It was fun and a little busy because it was testing week at the school. The testing was conducted in the computer laboratory so the computer classes were joined other classes at library times.
Next week is Spring Break and I can’t wait for our trip to Beaver’s Bend State Park in Oklahoma. My darling daughter is excited as well. We’re going to explore the park again. Right now, I am finishing a few house chores and will go to the playground later.
In participation with the Read Across America Campaign week, K’s school PTO asked parents if we’re able to come to the school and read to the students or listen to them read. I came to her school yesterday and read a book to two First Grader students and to K’s class.
It was a great feeling to be able to share a little time reading to the children and see them interact and share their reactions about the story I read to them.
My dear husband and our darling daughter attended the school’s Father-Daughter Dance 2017 this evening. It was their very first Father and Daughter Dance event. My husband didn’t know what to do at the Dance so I went with them and helped him with the registration process. He thought I’d be able to go with them inside the dance hall but I can’t. Only fathers and daughters can. He didn’t bring his cellphone so they didn’t have any pictures together at the dance.
When we were getting ready and while I was dressing K, she grabbed the peacock Christmas ornament and asked me to pin it on her shoulder facing forward. This kid has a big imagination on accessorizing. 🙂 She was walking carefully not to let the blue peacock fall off her shoulder.
Instead of going home after dropping of my loves, I decided to go to my cousin’s house and had a visit while waiting for the time to pick up my loves. My cousin baked some chocolate cupcakes and they were delicious.
I picked dear husband and K at 8:30 P.M.. K said she had a great time at the dance.
