Field Day – Friday, May 6th!

Dear ILCA 1st-8th grade Parents, Four weeks from today, May 6th, is the annual Oklahoma Lutheran Schools Field Day at First Lutheran School in Ponca City. For those who are not familiar with this event, we travel to Ponca City to compete with other Lutheran schools in academic and track/field events. We have parent volunteers to drive all of our students to this event.

What is Field Day? Each school year in May, students in grades 1-8 compete in track, field and academic events with students in grades 1-8 from other Lutheran schools in Oklahoma. First Lutheran School in Ponca City hosts this all day event. It is a day filled with fun and Christian fellowship not only with our own ILCA family but with other Lutheran school families in the state. The students sign-up and practice for their events during PE with Mrs. Hostetter.

What do I need to do before Field Day? We need parents to volunteer to drive students to this event. We also need parent volunteers to help with running the track and field events that our school is responsible for leading. If you would like to drive or help with a field event, please let Mrs. Hostetter or your child’s classroom teacher know as soon as possible. We will not take a bus, so all students will either be signed up to ride with their guardian or another student’s guardian. What do I need to bring or send with my child to Field Day? Parents who have volunteered to drive are asked to bring a cooler that will hold the lunches and drinks for the students being transported in their cars. If you are not driving, your child will need to bring a sack lunch, sunscreen, plenty of water, and snacks.

What will my child need to wear to Field Day? Teachers took your child’s shirt size this week. We are ordering Field Day shirts for the students. Your Facts account will be charged for the shirt. They will need to wear school appropriate athletic shorts/pants with their Field Day shirt and athletic shoes.

If you have questions or need more information, please contact Mrs. Hostetter at or your child’s homeroom teacher, as soon as possible.
