Dear Families,
 
We are excited to announce that Abington Middle School will be participating in our 1st EVER Virtual Field Day event Monday, June 1st – Friday, June 5th!
 
Field Day has been such an important tradition at our school. It has been a significant day for our students and our staff, and we feel that in these incredibly challenging times this event is a unique way that we can stay connected as a community and support one another in a fun and meaningful way!
 
 All the events are designed to be done indoors or outdoors using common household items. You won’t be asked to purchase any specialized equipment or supplies.
 
Here’s how it will work:
 
  • Field Day information will be posted to Canvas. This page will contain a score card, all the activity directions, and video demonstrations.
 
  • During the week of our Virtual Field Day, students will participate in events, complete the official score card, and post pictures and videos on Canvas. Household members are encouraged to play, too!
 
  • Every student that submits a score sheet for at least 4 events and a photo or video showing completion of at least 1 event will receive a Field Day Certificate. However, they may complete as many events as they wish.
 
  • Have fun participating in the events! Teachers are encouraged to participate too!
 
We will continue to send you updates on this fun event. We appreciate your cooperation and are hopeful that your entire family will use it as a fun and meaningful way to be physically active together and with our entire school community.
 
Stay well!
