My girls field day is next week and some parents are complaining about it. I was wondering how your school does field day. Is it an all day event, a few hours? Who runs it? In my girls school field day is about half the day. The younger grades in the morning and the older ones in the afternoon. Their school is k-5. The gym teachers set up all the activities, then there are 3 parent volunteers who run each station. Usually the teachers do very little other than walk the kids from station to station. The parent volunteers are parents who are active in the PTA- either on the board or in charge of a some pta activity, or a rep for a district committee. A parent posted this on facebook last night about it "Very sad policy for our children"
