Hill Elementary Field Day

Dear Parents,

On Monday, June 10, 2019 Hill will be hosting its annual Field Day event. This is an event that the students truly look forward to each year. Unfortunately, it takes a lot of planning as well as help from our parents. If you think that volunteering for Field Day this year is something that you would be interested in, please sign up for the event that interests you most.  Sign-up Genius will allow you to choose the event you'd like to help with that day. Please note that Field Day will run from 1:00-3:00 PM that day. We may run over the time a little bit. You will have each group of kids at your station from approximately 7 minutes and will then rotate them. Thank you all for considering helping at an that means so much to our students.  This year we are asking that all volunteers bring 20 FILLED water balloons with them and drop them off at the Water Balloon station. This station cannot take place without the water balloons.
