  • FIELD DAY 2016

    Field Day 2016 for South Effingham Elementary is Friday, May 6. The students anxiously anticipate the day and have a wonderful time participating in the many activities. Instead of purchasing school field day t-shirts, Coach Hinely and Coach Cox are asking each grade level to wear a certain color t-shirt along with their uniform bottoms. These t-shirts can be purchased at Wal-Mart, Target, Michael's, etc. Click on the Field Day picture below to access the t-shirt information. Everyone looks forward to another great field day!

    We are also looking for folks to man stations throughout the day. If there are parents, grandparents, aunts, and uncles who would like to spend the day helping out with this fun-filled day, please click on the image below, print out the form, and return it to your child's teacher ASAP. Thanks so much for your willingness to lend a helping hand!
