5. Field Day Volunteers

Volunteer for Field Day


Field Day is an afternoon of fun and games for the students of OLMC during Catholic Schools Week. The children are divided into three levels: K-2, 3-5, and 6-8. Each level is divided into groups of 4-6 children. These children will then go to 15 different stations with their groups and play a game against another group. At least 1-2 parents are needed for each station at each level. The games are not hard, and all instruction and materials will be provided and setup for you.

Home & School will provide lunch for each volunteer starting at 12:15 p.m., but please check in by 12:30 p.m. to get your assignment. Volunteers should dress for the weather (layers are good, hats, sunscreen and sunglasses, too).

If it is raining on this day and administration deems it necessary to change the date of the field day, the rain day will be Thursday, February 1st.

Please click on the Sign-up Genius link if you would like to volunteer.

For questions, please contact the field day coordinator, LeeAnne Cardenas, at or phone/text 602-578-5777.
