The students at Hilliard Tharp Sixth Grade will once again have the opportunity to participate in the 35th Robert W. Sutton Memorial Track & Field Day this spring. On Friday, May 20th (rain date, Wednesday May 23rd) our entire student body will walk to Hilliard Davidson Sports Complex to compete in a fun-filled day of athletic events of their choosing, as a culmination of their Track and Field experience in physical education class.
The students are asked to pack a lunch this day and to dress appropriately, preferably in layers, to be prepared for a chilly morning that later may turn into a warm afternoon. Competition will take place approximately 8:15 am – 1:30 pm.
Please consider giving a few hours of your time to help measure/record field events. Please fill out this form if you can assist. We will be assigning parents a short volunteer shift. We invite one and all to come out and watch their child participate.

What is R Factor?
R Factor is a system developed by Focus3 leadership firm that helps develop the skills necessary to respond to life events in an “Above the Line” manner.
Our school district has partnered with Focus3 to develop our district culture blueprint. We believe culture is the heart of our schools and school system. We believe our core values provide the standards for how we behave toward each other, our students and our community!

As a part of our Fuel Up to Play 60 grant, Tharp students have had the opportunity to take advantage of Try it Thursdays, a day in which we offer something different during lunch for students to sample. Teaching children to try a variety of nutritious foods can play an important role in helping them develop good eating habits that will promote a healthy body weight and good health throughout their lives. Thus far, we have offered a vegetable pizza option at lunch and many students have sampled hummus, peppers, mango, and kiwi. This week students will have a chance to try jicama and on April 21st we will sample dried apricots. If you would like to volunteer to help out on one of these days, and have a current volunteer badge, please click on the button below.
