Signal Hill Field Day Friday June 12, 2015

Grades K-2 9:45-11:15

Grades 3-5 12:45-2:15

It is that time of the year again for Signal Hill’s Field Day! It is a day of fun in the sun and a great way to celebrate the end of another successful school year.

This year we are going to be having a theme of Get Hearty, Get Healthy, and Help Others! Students will be going with their classes from station to station where they will be playing fun games ranging from tug of war to water relays.

To go along with our theme of Get Hearty, Get Healthy, and Help Others, we are going to be partnering with FORK (For Kids, Inc.) a local organization that supplies weekend meals for many families in our community. We are also partnering with the American Heart Association to help raise awareness and money to go towards heart disease research. All we are asking for is as small of a donation of $1 per family for the AHA and/or 1 non-perishable food item for FORK. Both the money and food will be going towards fantastic causes, and we will be Getting Hearty, Getting Healthy, and Helping Others!

More information about the American Heart Association will be coming soon. If you would like additional information about FORK, please check out the SHES webpage.

In order to make this a successful field day your help is needed!

If you would like to volunteer, please fill out the information below and return it to Signal Hill no later than Friday, May 29st.  Indicate if you would like to help with grades K-2 (9:30 am-Noon) or 3-5 (Noon-3pm). An e-mail will be sent closer to the date giving you everything you need to know once we know how many volunteers we have! (We need 26 volunteers for both the morning and the afternoon)

Sincerely yours in health and fitness,

Calling All Volunteers!
We need many hands to make the 1st End of Year 5th Grade Celebration, being held June 17th after the awards ceremony, a success. We are throwing a Beach Party!
It has been customary at SHE for 4th grade parents to assist with the 5th grade celebration so that next year they don’t have to do the work. This is the first year we are doing a daylong event for the kids and need many more hands than in the past, so we are requesting volunteers from both 4th and 5th grades.
There are many activities to choose from, such as helping the kids with Dance Dance Revolution, serving lunch, supervising games, bringing in fruit, etc. There is something for everyone! Please visit the following site and sign up for your favorites! 

Join the Signal Hill Elementary PTA and Jiffy Lube Live for their summer concerts fundraising opportunities. Come work a concession stand and hear some great music! Training is offered and required to work. All volunteers must be over 18 & a member of the PTA. To join the PTA – please visit:

For additional information please contact Tammy Abel 703-967-6257 or email.
