5th GRADE SPORTS NIGHT & COLOR RUN - Friday, April 5
Coach Sledge, Coach Mace, and the 5th grade committee are putting together an all-star DCE faculty team to compete against the 5th grade classes in some of their all time favorite games! All 5th graders are invited to come compete with their class on Friday, April 5th beginning at 4:30pm. Each 5th grade class will play one of these games -- Swamp Ball, Capture the Flag, Make It Take It, Topple Ball, Relay Games, Tug of War, and Kickball. Each competition will last 15-20 minutes.
Gates will open at 4:00pm. All adults attending must be a pre-approved volunteer and have pre-registered by April 2nd. No exceptions will be made.
This is an event that your 5th grader will NOT want to miss!
Add this event to your calendar now.
After the sports games are completed, ALL 5TH GRADERS ARE INVITED to run in the most exciting event of the year -- THE COLOR RUN!!
The Color Run is an annual tradition at DCE and is for 5th graders only. Parents and siblings are invited to throw color at the kids as they run through the course! Pre-orders for color are coming home this week. You can find order forms [HERE].
The 5th graders will run through a course similar to the Fun Run. The kids will wear white t-shirts (Fun Run shirts would be perfect!) and eye protection will be provided for the 5th graders courtesy of Dr. Ann Nguyen (Target Optical or Lens Crafters).
At the conclusion of the Color Run, the 5th graders will meet in the middle of the course together and throw their own color up in the air to end a super fun evening!
PLEASE NOTE: Food and snow cones will be available to purchase. Gates will open at 4:00pm to allow all APPROVED VOLUNTEERS to pick up their pre-registered volunteer sticker and get out on to the field in time for the first sports game to begin. Pre-register by April 2nd - you will not be able to enter that night if your sticker has not been printed.
****Only pre-approved volunteers will be able to enter this event and the front office will NOT be open to sign-in on the computers. When the form to have your volunteer printed ahead of time comes home, please fill it out and send it back.****
You can also find this form here [HERE].
How can you help? We're looking for volunteers and a few supplies to help out during the evening of April 5th. The sign-up list can be found ----> [HERE]
