Letter: Re-2 special field day

Garfield School District Re-2 believes in the inherent potential of all children. This year, to ensure that all of our students have the opportunity to reach new heights, Garfield Re-2 will be hosting its first annual “Encourage, Nurture, Challenge Field Day” event. This event will allow students in the Significant Support Needs programs throughout the elementary, middle and high school levels to demonstrate their strengths and experience joy while participating with other students of similar ability levels.

Our school community works hard to provide opportunities for our students to be healthy and live a physically active lifestyle. The event will help students work on improving their overall health and wellness, and also provide a variety of opportunities to work on self-esteem and team building. This field day will allow Significant Support Needs students to celebrate their athletic abilities with classmates, new friends and their families.

We are asking members of the business community to share our belief in these kids and help to make this a very special day for all of them. We’re seeking not only prizes of goods or gift cards/certificates to be given away on event day, but especially monetary gifts to purchase shirts and awards for each of the competitors. Contributors will be gratefully acknowledged by having their business names included on our fliers to be distributed from the awards table and on our event banner to be displayed on Field Day. Gifts of $25 or more would be greatly appreciated. For those who choose to contribute a financial gift, checks can be made out to “Garfield School District Re-2,” with “SSN Field Day” included on the Memo/For line on the bottom left of the check.
