Field Day

  • IMPORTANT: Please send your student to school lathered in sunscreen and wearing tennis shoes. We will be having a fun, hot, active day! 
  • The year is coming to an end which means Field Day is just around the corner. This year’s Field Day is on May 23, and it is different than any other Field Day Motsenbocker has had before. It is an all-day event. It includes a relay station, water games station, track and field station, playground station, art and crafts station, and an imagination station. Aside from the stations students will also receive a Popsicle from the PTO. Highlights of Field Day include a water balloon toss, washable tattoos, face painting, and temporary hairspray paint. If you have specific questions regarding these events please contact Ms. Matthews. (  
  • Running a successful field day requires a lot of planning and help from VOLUNTEERS.

We appreciate all of YOUR help to make this event a successful event for all students at American Academy.
