    Hello everyone,

    I was thinking about Field Day and I want to try a new approach this year.  I want to incorporate Music, Art, and Technology Centers into the day.  Specialists rarely get a chance to showcase their program to other grade level teachers and to the greater community.

    This method would provide that opportunity.  Also, think of the students who may not view PE as their best subject.  Perhaps they like Art class the best.  I imagine a PE center, followed by an Art center, followed by a music center, followed by a Technology center throughout the day.  I alos envision special guest “experts” from each special area visiting us and presenting at a center….maybe a famous local artist or a famous musician, or a person who is a technology supervisor at NASA for example.

    More people would have “ownership” of the day and the kids wouldnt be “dead tired” at the end of a long hot day.  I wanted to know what everyone thought of this idea.  I personally think it would be great, and would help to showcase all of us in a positive way.
