Welcome to SCIS Pudong

Principal Announcement:

Lower School Field Day Information

 

Dear Parents,                                                                                     

 

This Wednesday, June 14 is our annual Field Day event for SCIS-Pudong Lower School students.  This event will be taking place outside on the sports field.  However, in the event of rain, the event will be moved indoors and take place in the Lower School gymnasium and Black Box.   On this day, all students in Grades 2-5 should wear their SCIS PE uniform, students in Prekindergarten-Grade 1 should wear their green activity shirt.   Students should also wear comfortable running shoes and consider bringing a change of clothes as some of the Field Day activities involve water.

 

During Field Day, students will be asked to “buddy up” with one friend, two friends or a small group to take part in 10 planned events that will provide them with opportunities to utilize their physical skills and abilities.  Of course, the primary purpose of this event is for students to have fun and enjoy participating in a range of activities with their peers while being encouraged by teachers and parents.

 

Field Day will begin with the “Dragon Sponge Relay,” where students will work together as a grade level class and use a sponge to transport water from one bucket to another.  Following the relay, students will then be free to participate in the events on the field (or in the gymnasium).   Parents who have not volunteered to assist in leading an activity station are free to move around and encourage the students as they participate in the various events.  Parents are also invited to join us for our Parent Appreciation BBQ from 11:50am – 12:30pm in the cafeteria.  Below is an overview of Field Day for Prekindergarten through Grade 2 students, as well as students in Grades 3-5.

 

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact Mr. Ruf at mruf@scis-china.org

We hope you will considering joining us for this fun event
GO DRAGONS!


Sincerely,

Mr. Ruf, Ms. Tarsi and Ms. Gale
