Field Running Club

Who
All students in 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade can join the Running Club. There will be a two-week trial period for anyone who wants to try out FRC before committing to joining. Once committed, students are expected to participate each week and finish out the session.

What
Field students will have the opportunity to run during lunch recess and earn prizes while doing it! Runners receive a chain and a token for their chain for each mile they run. Special tokens will also be awarded for milestone distances and special occasions.

Where
Students will run a designated path on the grounds of Field School that will be monitored for safety by volunteer parents.

When
Beginning September 21st, kids can “try” the Running Club for 2 weeks to see if they want to commit for the fall session.  Weather permitting, we will run on Fridays every week until the Drumstick Dash.  All FRC students will meet outside at the designated FRC area.

How
If your child is interested in joining FRC, please complete and return the contract and waiver, Attn: Audra Stanley.  There will be a brief and mandatory informational meeting for all 3rd graders and any other student who did not participate in FRC last year.  This meeting will take just 10 minutes during lunch recess. We will discuss rules and expectations, appropriate attire, chains and tokens, etc. at this meeting.

Let us know if you have any questions.  We’re looking forward to another great year!

Would you like to order Field Running Club Gear? Send the order form in by Friday, September 20th!

Mom's Night Out

Mom's Night Out was launched in 2009 as a chance for Field Moms to meet and get to know one another in a casual, social setting. It was a huge success, offering numerous connection opportunities within the Field School community. By collecting a $10 donation, we raise enough money to reduce other 'sales calls' throughout the year.
A HUGE thank you to all of the Mom's Night Out hostesses!

Reflections


2019-2020 Theme: "Look Within"

2019-2020 Poster

Encourage your child to participate!  This program will certainly unleash your child's artistic talents!  Entries from all grades and all abilities welcome.  Students choose the art category they're interested in!  There are six arts categories – dance choreography, film production, literature, music composition, photography and visual arts.

Deadline for entries: Wednesday, November 6th

For details, contact: Michelle Wehrle at michellewehrl@yahoo.com

Students may submit an entry in any of the six arts areas listed below. Only original works of art are accepted. It does not matter whether an entry created for the Reflections Program has been created as a classroom assignment or independently at home.  Once judged at the local level, the winners go on to the council and/or district judging. Those winners go to the Illinois PTA to receive recognition.

Select projects will advance from the state level to the National PTA level. The six arts areas are as follows:

There is also a Special Artist Division which is an option for students with disabilities who receive services under IDEA or Section 504 to have the opportunity and accommodations they may need in order to participate fully in the program.

2019-2020 RULES

Please carefully read the rules for specific categories. Failure to submit a proper entry form or follow specific arts category rules could disqualify a project.

ENTRY FORM

Each project submission must include an official entry form. Feel free to attach an extra sheet if more room is needed for the Artist Statement, etc.

You Can Help!

Here’s how you can help

*If you haven’t already, join the PTA. More than half of your membership fee goes to IL PTA, but the other portion is used for Field. Joining the PTA does not obligate you to do anything, it just ensures you stay informed!
*Support our fundraisers. 96% of our funding comes from fundraisers, like the ones below:
*Winter Wonderfest: This is a family-style carnival with games and prizes. Funds are raised with tickets, and raffles. Usually held after the new year.
*Square 1 Art: These are art projects done in school that you can then purchase on a mug, keychain, or other keepsake. More information coming soon.
*Mom’s Night Out: This is a $10 donation made to reduce other “sales calls” throughout the year and allow moms to meet and get to know one another in a casual setting.
*Support our incentive programs. This includes Eat & Earn opportunities at local restaurants.
*  Give your time. Throughout the year, we’ll be sending information and links on how you can get involved in the school. These opportunities are a fun way to make a connection with yourchild’s school.

Thank you for everything you do for our children! To find out even more, please visit http://field.elmhurst205.org/pta

Current Volunteer Opportunities:

Library Volunteers Needed

Got an hour or so to spare every other week?  Consider being a library volunteer and help re-shelve returned books.  Volunteers commit to a regular schedule of at least one hour every other week. You’ll have a set day and morning or afternoon time slot to volunteer, but you can pick the exact time you want to arrive and work your minimum one hour shift.  If you can’t commit to a regular schedule, but still want to help you can volunteer on a fill-in basis.   It’s a pretty easy volunteer job and Mrs. Talbot and Mrs. Ishida will show you where the books go.  Plus, you might get to see your kids.  If you are interested, please contact Kristin Sokol – kristinwilde@hotmail.com.
