This event honors our 'bridging' students (2nd, 4th, 6th and 8th graders) who are moving up to the next level at FGCS or who are graduating and moving on to high school. Parents and other family members of bridging students are encouraged to attend. Doors will open for the event at 12:30 p.m. and the event will start at 1 p.m. Allow time to park your car on streets nearby and make your way to Taylor-Meade. Click here for a map of the Pacific University campus. Please note that the2:30 p.m. end time is approximate.
Parents: You may take students home with them immediately after the ceremony if they wish, but please make sure you check out directly with teachers so we can keep track of everyone. Students who return to campus after Bridging will be dismissed at 3:05 (Level 1) and 3:20 (Levels 2, 3 and 4).
Field Day starts at about 9:30 a.m. and wraps up with a picnic lunch. June 12 is a full school day, so Level 1 students will be dismissed at 3:05 p.m. Levels 2, 3 and 4 at 3:20 p.m.
On Field Day, students will eat lunch at the park. We serve pizza lunch with fruit and juice to any who want it. Students who ordered school lunch will get a sack lunch they can eat in addition to or instead of pizza. Students are also welcome to bring lunch from home if they prefer. If your child ordered school lunch but you'd like to cancel that order for Field Day, please contact Karen Torry at firstname.lastname@example.org or 503-359-4600.
Upcoming Out and Abouts
For our last O&A of the year, we will be spending the day at LL Stub Stewart Park! All students will need to bring a backpack, lunch, water bottle, extra layers, and sun protection.
We will be putting all of the outdoor skills that we’ve learned over the past few weeks to the test while on our hike through the park. To celebrate all of the hard work we’ve done this year and courage we’ve shown while trying new things during O&A’s, we will have a group picnic and enjoy some games to wrap up the day.
