Field Day Friday May 24!
All PARENTS THAT HAVE VOLUNTEERED PLEASE BE ON THE LOOK OUT FOR AN EMAIL FROM THE PTA WITH DETAILS REGARDING FIELD DAY.
Hello Coleytown Parents!
Field Day is almost here! The shirts have been designed and ordered, the stations have been selected, the kids are super excited, and all we need is VOLUNTEERS!
Here are some very important guidelines for volunteering:
- There will be two time slots for volunteers - Shift 1 from 9:00-11:00am and Shift 2 from 10:45-12:45pm.
- In order to give every parent an opportunity to volunteer, please sign up for only ONE shift and ONE station. Each parent should sign in individually to Sign Up Genius, so as not to have a double sign up under one parent name.
- If all the slots are filled, please feel free to sign up on the wait list, which will be at the bottom of the SUG. There is a wait list for both shifts. We will make every effort to include all volunters who would like to help out!
- Only parents are allowed to volunteer for Field Day. Sorry, no relatives!
- We ask all parent volunteers to WEAR A RED SHIRT on Field Day to make you easily identifiable. (Blue shirts for bathroom runners.)
- Only parents helping with a shift will be allowed at Field Day.
- If Field Day is postponed due to rain, we will use the same sign up schedule from May 24th for May 31st. Please make sure you are available at the same time for both weeks.
And you know the rest...

WHY SHOULD WE SUPPORT THE COLEYTOWN PTA?
- Because it makes our kids happy and adds to their Coleytown experience! What would life for our kids be like without the Spooktacular or Field Day?
- Because it provides parents easy access to school information and creates a strong voice advocating for our children within the Westport town government.
- Because it supports the “T” in PTA. We want to thank our teachers and staff for all the HARD work they put in every day.
WHAT ELSE IS IMPORTANT TO KNOW?
- We are a 501(c)(3) organization, and all donations are tax-deductible.
- Our PTA qualifies for corporate matching programs.
- The PTA is 100% a volunteer organization. 100% of the money raised will enrich the school and your child’s school experience.
- Funding for school enrichment programs and community building events are the biggest budgeted expenditures our PTA makes during a school year. This includes Visiting Authors, Cultural Arts Performances, Art Smart, Teacher Grants, School Beautification, and Showcase, to name a few.
