Final Description of Your Project: Now that your project is ready for implementation, or on the way to being implemented, describe the project in detail.
We will be holding a field day for approximately 100, 5th grade, students from area schools, primarily made up of Montgomery Public Schools (MPS). The field day will occur on October 4, 2018 at the Montgomery Biscuits Stadium. Students will arrive at 9:00am that morning. We will have a welcome committee, including cheerleaders/athletes (volunteers) from local colleges and Big Mo, who will take pictures with the classes and hype them up for the day. We will have a guest speaker (to be determined) who will speak to the kids about bullying vs love and respect. The children will then move through 4 field day activities. One of those activities will be a tour, most likely of the locker room, provided by a representative from the Biscuits. The other three are being created and finalized by the Torchbearers. Each activity will highlight the key focus of respecting others and creating kindness and we will have a “download” time after each activity to lead a discussion around how the activity demonstrated that focus. We are recruiting volunteers from local college athletic teams. We will serve lunch to the kids and volunteers. Additionally, the Biscuits will be contacting sponsors to supply funding for t-shirts which are being created and ordered by the Torchbearers for all children, teachers, and volunteers.
