Important Field Day Information! Grades 1 – 9

Hi Parents,

On May 3rd, Immanuel students in grades 1-9 will be traveling to First Lutheran School in Ponca City for the annual Oklahoma Lutheran Schools Field Day.  At this event, ILCA students will compete with other Lutheran school students in academic and track/field events.  6th-9th grade students will be taking the bus to Ponca City. We will need parent drivers for the 1st-5th grade students.

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 Mr. Clark.

What do I need to do before Field Day?

We need parents to volunteer to drive students in grades 1-5 to this event.  We also may 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 your child’s classroom teacher know as soon as possible.

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. Students may also bring money for concessions.

What will my child need to wear to Field Day?

Students will need to wear school appropriate athletic shorts/pants with their field day t-shirt and athletic shoes.

Any questions, please reach out to Lori Clark.
