Field Day

Sunrise Valley Field Day is scheduled this year on Tuesday June 7, 2022.  The students are very excited to take part in this wonderful end of the year celebration.  As a courtesy we would like to share a few reminders for your child’s success and safety on this day:

  • Students are encouraged to carry their own water bottle during SVES Field Day.  Water bottles should have each student’s name either taped or written on it for identification.  Water stations will be placed in various spots around the outside of the school so that students can refill them throughout the morning and afternoon sessions.  Students have been asked to wear comfortable clothing in preparation for the weather.  This includes wearing a hat, visor or even sun block for a hot, sunny day.
  • There are two sessions for students.  Students in grades (k-3) will have their field day from 10:00AM-11:30AM.  Students in grades (4-6) will have their field day from 1:00PM-3:00PM. 
  • There’s no need for students to bring a bag lunch unless they would normally.  The lunch schedule for eating inside has been adjusted to accommodate both field day sessions for students.

If there is inclement weather  field day will have to be canceled.  Due to all the school events at the end of the year  we were unable to schedule  a make up day.    The decision will be made  by 9:00AM Tuesday morning.  

Once again thank you for all that you do in support of your child here at Sunrise Valley Elementary School.  If you have any questions please contact Mr. Platts at [email protected] or Mrs. Allen at [email protected] .

P.E. Message for Grades 4-6

The Sunrise Valley Physical Education Department will be hosting a bike safety unit for grades 4-6 ONLY.  This unit is designed to bring bike safety and health awareness to students at this level.  The bike safety unit will take place from May 16 through May 20, 2022.  The area to be used will be the back parking lot of the school, which will be blocked off from cars daily. 

The physical education department will supply 32 BMX bikes and helmets to share with all students in grades 4-6.  Helmets will be cleaned on a daily bases and hair nets will have to be worn by each child to prevent any transmission of germs or lice; we have an endless supply of hair nets as well.    

If your child has a bike helmet, they are encouraged to bring it to school and have it available to wear each day for PE.  We encourage students not to share their personal helmet with any other student during this unit. If carrying the helmet daily is too much for them, they may leave it with the PE Department, where we will store it for safety.  Please have your child write their first and last name on their helmets if this option is chosen. 

If there are any questions, please feel free to contact Mr. Platts at [email protected]  or Mrs. Allen at [email protected] .  You may also call our office line at (703) 715-3894

Thanks for your patience and involvement in your child’s education,

Mr. Platts and Mrs. Allen
