Field Day is an event where students participate in age-appropriate outdoor track and field events with their classmates. It’s a lot of fun for the whole school and a favorite event for many students. Mr. Switzer needs volunteer timers, ribbon-writers and judges to help with the events for 5-8th grade in the morning and 1st-4th grade in the afternoon. Click here to volunteer. Pre-K and K will have field day as well, but our recess staff will run the events. All volunteers can report to Mr. Switzer on the South Playground. Spectators are welcome to cheer on all Field Day participants. PreK and K events will take place on the north playground. PreK (tbpk & am) starts at 9:30am, PreK pm starts at 1:15pm, K starts at 2:15pm. On the south playground grades 5-8 events are 9am-11:55am and grades 1-4 events are 12:30-2:45pm.

Ravenswood partners with Ravenswood Community Services to bring this powerful learning experience to our seventh and eighth graders, and you can get in on the fun. Not familiar with Reality Fair? It’s a financial literacy challenge where students receive a fictional job and a paycheck and attempt to navigate real-world monthly expenses without going bankrupt. We need volunteers to serve as bankers, utility company reps, travel agents, car salespeople, financial counselors and more. It’s a three-hour commitment you won’t forget!  We still need about 20 volunteers, click here to help.
