Today our school physical education teacher and adaptive physical education teacher conducted a brand new kind of field day at our high school's beautiful track and fields.
The entire student body hiked over to the site to engage in a large number of wonderful games and activities. Parent volunteers led the student events.
Dressed in a special color for each grade, teams of students moved from station to station on this bright, blue sky day.
It was courageous for a new teacher to try out such a big, new event, and from my fifth grade teacher lens, I thought it was remarkable.
Next year, I'll make sure I have a few chaperones to accompany us to and from the high school so we have extra hands for unexpected events and I probably won't plan a field trip for the day before as we did this year, but other than that, the day was a true success for one and all. Kudos to our terrific physical education team and school administration who supported the new idea.
