Mike Johnson Field Day @ Jim Darcy

Field Day stands out as “one of the best school days ever” for our K-5 students. The morning is dedicated to fun, sportsmanship, and participation as students rotate through 15 different activities. Girls and boys compete in sack races, tug of war, and hurdles; they practice their skills in kicking a football, hitting a baseball, and shooting free throws; and they just plain have fun using the hula hoops, frisbees, and jump ropes. Enjoy browsing through the snapshots from Field Day 2015.
