Friday, June 10th will be Sports Day at Cambridge Elementary. Each student has been assigned a Sports Day Team Colour. If you are unsure of your child’s colour, please contact your child’s teacher.
WE ARE UNCERTAIN ABOUT THE WEATHER AT THIS POINT, BUT UNLESS THE RAIN IS SERIOUS, WE HOPE TO MOVE FORWARD WITH SPORTS DAY THIS FRIDAY. A decision will be made very early Friday morning and we will publish updates on our school website, blog, Twitter, and FaceBook account. If it is raining on June 10th, the rain out day will be on Monday, June 13th.
Students should dress in as much of their house colours as possible, and should dress appropriately for the weather and activities. They are encouraged to wear sports-themed clothing (team jersey, shorts, socks, hats). Students should wear running shoes, hats, and have sunscreen on. All students should have a water bottle labeled with their name.
IF YOUR CHILD WILL NOT BE ATTENDING SPORTS DAY, PLEASE LET THE OFFICE OR YOUR CHILD’S TEACHER KNOW, THIS WILL HELP WITH PLACING CHILDREN IN THEIR TEAMS.

Our PAC also needs volunteers for the following:

- 4-5 volunteers to help cut the freezies in half
- volunteers to run our concession stand
If you are able to help, please email the PAC at Cambridge.firstname.lastname@example.org
OUR PAC WILL HOST A CONCESSION STAND FROM 9:00 AM -12:45 PM. THE STAND WILL BE OPEN TO PARENTS DURING THIS TIME. STUDENTS WILL HAVE ACCESS TO THE CONCESSION STAND ONLY BETWEN 11:50 AM AND 12:45 PM SINCE WE DO NOT WANT STUDENT LEAVING THEIR STATIONS DURING ROTATIONS.
Thank you in advance for your support and we look forward to seeing you (and your little ones) this Friday. Enjoy this look back to a year ago and Sports Day 2015!
