Does your kids school still have field day?

I was just wondering if your childs school still had field day.

We received our field day information sheet on Monday. Half of the school will have it during the morning hours and the other half will have it during the afternoon.

I remember when it was an all day event that the kids looked forward too. Now it seems like a water down version of what it used to be.

Ours does.  I don't know how long it is though.

My son's school does. It's still a huge event to my son because he loves sports. The older grades help run the field day for the younger kids. So it's a full day event for the older grades, and it's only in the morning for the younger grades.

Yes--sometime this month.  Our school has it split up over a couple of days because we are a very landlocked school and don't have a lot of outdoor space.  Only two grades (3-4 classrooms for each grade) have a half-day field day at a time.
