Franklin 2020 Virtual Field Day

Field day this year will be a bit different than in past years but just like in the past the two most important things about field day are that you are being active and having fun. Starting on May 4th and going through May 7th, I will have one activity posted a day on the school website with a video of me doing the activity and instructions on how to do the activity. Your job will be, with adult permission, to do the activity at home to the best of your ability and take a video or picture of yourself doing the activity. Once all the pictures and videos are collected, we will put them together and post the video on the website. During our virtual field day, I want you to do your best and make do with what you have available at home, be creative, change the rules or directions to help make Field Day work best for you.

Franklin 2020 Día De Campo Virtual

 

El día de campo este año será un poco diferente que en años anteriores, pero al igual que en el pasado, las dos cosas más importantes sobre el día de campo son que estes activo y divirtiéndote. A partir del 4 de mayo- hasta el 7 de mayo, publicaré una actividad por día en el sitio web de la escuela Franklin con un video de mí haciendo la actividad e instrucciones sobre cómo hacerla. Tu trabajo será, con el permiso de un adulto, hacer la actividad en casa lo mejor que puedas y tomar un video o una foto de ti mismo haciendo la actividad. Una vez que se recaude todas las imágenes y videos, los juntaremos y publicaremos el video en el sitio web de Franklin. Durante nuestro día de campo virtual, quiero que hagas lo mejor que puedas y que uses lo que tengans disponible en casa, que seas creativo, que cambies las reglas o instrucciones para que el Día de campo funcione mejor para ti.

 Day 4 – May 7th

Dear Franklin Families,

This is a follow-up to the email sent to you yesterday from the District regarding summer learning materials available to pick up at Franklin.

We are excited to provide your elementary student with a package of books, reading response journal, sight word flashcards for grades K-3 and a Scholastic reading and math workbook over the summer.

Pick up will occur at Franklin on the following days:

Tuesday, May 19th from 8:00 a.m. – 6:00 p.m.

Wednesday, May 20th from 8:00 a.m. – 6:00 p.m.

Please make every effort to pick up your child’s summer learning materials on these days. The District is providing GREAT resources that will help extend learning during the summer.

For the health and safety of all, the distribution and return will follow a drive-through format. Students and families will not come into the school.

To limit traffic and prioritize health and safety, we only ask students who will not return to OPS in the fall to return items checked out from school.

If your student has items checked out from school and they will return to the district this fall, we will coordinate the return of materials in the fall.

Please check out the OPS webpage for meal distribution sites. There are now 25 locations that will distribute food on various days after the school year.

It has been a pleasure getting to know all of our students and their families this year. I look forward to seeing all of you in the Fall. Have a safe and enjoyable summer!
