Douglas Day

Douglas Day is a fun school day of field games and outdoor fun. Each class divides into four color-coded teams for a morning of events like scooter racing, catapults, bucket brigades, parachute games, and three-legged races. And everyone gets a chance to dunk a teacher or parent (or even Dr. Whitbeck!) in the dunk tank! Students buy or bring a picnic lunch and sit outside on blankets to eat with family and friends.

Please remember that anyone attending Douglas Day needs to have a CORI form on file at the office. (It’s quick and easy! Just stop by the office with a photo ID.)

Lunch times:

  • 11:25-11:50 am – Lunch for Grades 1 and 2
  • 11:45-12:10 pm – Lunch for All-Day Kindergarten
  • Noon-12:25 pm – Lunch for Grades 3 and 4
  • 1:00-1:25pm – Lunch for Grades 5 and 6

The picnic lunch will consist of a choice of hamburger, hot dog, or veggie burger (limited quantities), pasta salad, milk, chips, and a cookie. You are also welcome to bring your own picnic lunch instead of purchasing one from the cafeteria.

Bring the lunch outside and enjoy it picnic-style with the class. You may want to bring a blanket to sit on. Please ensure that your children return to the classroom at the end of the scheduled lunchtime. Suggested items to remember: camera, blanket, sunscreen, sunglasses, hat, and water bottle (no glass water bottles, please!)
