Elementary and Middle School students teamed up for a fun-filled Field Day!
Annual Field Day Fun!
One of our favorite days is Field Day! At the end of each year the Elementary and Middle School students join teams for an afternoon of water games, relay races, sack races, capture the flag and lots of good ol’ fashion fun! This year some new events were added using giant beach balls and cloth bands that required a lot of teamwork to make it to the finish line!
