‘Funtastic Field Day’ at FPS featuring K-12 youth March 1

For the second year in a row, Farragut Primary School will be the site of an all-inclusive “Funtastic Field Day” from 2 to 5 p.m., Sunday, March 1.

The event is intended for

students from kindergarten through 12th grade, with and without disabilities, according to organizers.

“This event is for all children and their families regardless of ability,” said Lindsay Willis, who last year served as FPS Parent Teacher Association special education liaison when FPS hosted the event for the first time, but who now fills the role of special education chair for Knox County Council Parent Teacher Association. “Our goal is to promote inclusion and show teachers and families that it is possible.

“Knox County has been so great to help us spread the word to all of the schools countywide; flyers went in all backpacks recently.”

Sponsors for the event include The Therapeutic Recreation Program in the University of Tennessee’s Department of Kinesiology, Recreation, and Sport Studies.

The event is free and open to the public. Food trucks also will be on-site.
