Field Day

Important information for ALL parents!


FPDS Field Day is one of the most special days of the school year.  It is a day we set aside to have fun and celebrate the wonderful year God has blessed us with. Please join us in praying for beautiful weather & a fun day for our children!

Field Day will be held for all kindergarten through sixth grade students on Friday, May 14th from 9:00a.m. - 12:00 p.m. at the First Baptist Church Jackson Field

**Kindergarten students may come and enjoy the inflatables from 8:30 - 9 a.m.**

There will be NO school on campus or Company/ Crusader Circle the day of Field Day.

Your entire family is invited and encouraged to come and join the fun!! PLEASE do not forget to bring blankets, chairs, sunscreen and wear comfortable shoes!


We need parent volunteers!  Please sign up to volunteer to make this day special for everyone.  Please note below the time of your child’s relay - you don’t want to miss watching them!

Kindergarten through sixth grade students will meet their teachers in front of the music tent for the opening ceremony at 9 a.m.  Teachers are NOT responsible for the children during Field Day.  Therefore, we ask that a parent/guardian accompany each child to Field Day.

Please be respectful of First Baptist’s property and help us be sure all garbage goes in the trash cans. 


Kindergarten & 6th Grade: 9:30-10:00

1st & 2nd Grade: 10:15-10:45

3rd, 4th & 5th Grade: 11:00-11:30

The food and drink booths will ONLY take tickets and do NOT accept cash. There will be pizza, chicken sandwiches, snow cones, candy, drinks, etc. available.  These tickets must be purchased in advance of Field Day through our online sale - open until May 11.
