Students will report to their Panther Homeroom for attendance; please make sure they arrive on time. There is no morning basketball before school, to allow for set up of the fields and the gym.

What to bring:
Many of the field day events are outdoors. The weather could be warm and sunny.

Students are encouraged to apply sunblock before coming to school. There will be sunblock available with the nurse, as well. Hats and sunglasses are allowed. Students should wear sneakers to school, as well as proper attire for being outdoors and active.

Keeping hydrated:
There will be several water stations in the field. Students are encouraged to bring a disposable water bottle, with their name on it.

All teams are assigned a color for the day:
