Dear Wilshire Families,
This past month, our junior and intermediate students missed their beloved track and field meets. While we may be missing exciting sprint finishes and record breaking jumps this year, there’s no reason why we can’t enjoy some friendly competition and fun physical activities as a community. To that end, we are excited to share with you Wilshire’s Virtual Field Day 2020!
Some of our amazing student leaders have been hard at work to bring us a virtual event that we can all participate in from our homes. We hope that students and their families will join us for a Wilshire Virtual Field Day event! Our Virtual Field Day will take place over the next week, starting today and wrapping up on Tuesday, June 23rd. To participate, please access the following links using your child’s GAPPS account. All the Field Day activities, the equipment list (items commonly found at home), and an electronic recording sheet are all available to you via these links. Participate in as many activities as you want (and as many attempts as you want) over the next week and record your personal bests as you improve! Remember to share your personal bests (honour system please!) via the shared Google Form by Tuesday, June 23rd so that your results can be tabulated. By the end of next week, we hope to share and celebrate the results of our record breaking participants!
We encourage all students to show their school spirit, get active, and have fun! Moreover, we hope that the whole family joins in to enjoy this week together. We will also have a Staff/Parent/Guardian Division, as well as a Wilshire-Alumni Division, so we hope that our community as a whole will participate by trying the activities, setting goals, and working towards achieving new personal bests!
Get ready, get set, GO!
