District 13 students have a Field Day in the sun


District 13 students were able to get out and get moving during their annual Field Day event. Students enjoyed a full school day of sun and physical activity with their fellow classmates.

Wheeler Avenue Elementary School’s Field Day was held at Firemen’s Memorial Field. Students in grades four through six wore blue and gold T-shirts courtesy of the Parent-Teacher Association.  Students participated in over 50 fun fitness events including mini-marathons, relay races, and tug of war. Ribbons were given out to all who participated as well as first, second, and third place winners.

Willow Road Elementary School enjoyed its Field Day with a circus theme. Students participated in various stations throughout the day and engaged in activities such as obstacle courses, tug of war, and dancing with a DJ. The PTA provided a pizza lunch that was enjoyed by all.

Howell Road Elementary School enjoyed its mega Field Day with potato sack races, dance parties, relay races, and more. The students also enjoyed some water-incorporated games to cool down from the hot weather.

James A. Dever Elementary School celebrated its Field Day by unplugging from technology. Students spent the day outside with activities centered around music, art, reading, and physical education. The classes rotated throughout the day, so everyone was able to have an equal experience with relay races, read-aloud, STEAM projects, mono printing, drum circles, and more.
