FIELD DAY 2019: IMPORTANT INFORMATION FOR PARENTS K5-6TH GRADE

*Please read carefully.*

FPDS Field Day is on 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 Friday, May 10, from 9:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m. at the First Baptist Church Jackson Field. They are so kind to allow us to use their property again for our Field Day. The location is downtown Jackson at the corner of High Street and North Street. There are multiple parking lots located behind the Family Life Center. In addition, parents can park on the appropriate streets downtown. ALL students will meet their teachers at the opening ceremony at the field in front of the music tent at 9 a.m. and NOT at the school. The teachers are NOT responsible for the children during Field Day. Therefore, we ask that a parent/guardian accompany each child to Field Day.

There will be multiple security guards, but please be very cautious when parking and walking to the field! There will be lots of traffic. Please cross where there is a security guard assisting with crossing the street. We will have a security guard on High Street and multiple guards on North Street.  

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

The only tickets that you will need for Field Day are food tickets AND tickets to purchase a water bottle. Water bottles can be purchased at the field on Field Day. The food and drink booths will ONLY take tickets and do NOT accept cash. Food such as pizza, chicken sandwiches, snow cones, candy, drinks, etc., will be available. We suggest these tickets be purchased in advance the week of Field Day at the pre-sale.
