Field Day

Last Friday, we gathered for our annual Field Day which is an important event since it brings our whole campus together. We had beautiful weather, despite some muddy areas, for our community members to be bonding outdoors, having fun and making memories. Over the years, some traditions have been built into Field Day. A few examples include the Torch Run at the beginning which the students learn beforehand where that ritual comes from and the afternoon Lap Sit game that is an exercise in cooperation, trust & coordination.

Field Day is also an opportunity for the students to show off their skills whether it be running in one of the relays, successfully throwing a frisbee through a hoop, scoring a goal or clearing a hurdle. The students love this yearly event and the spirit of good sportsmanship that is portrayed.
