Both Track & Field Days were supposed to be the first Tuesday and Wednesday in May, but Mother Nature was cooperating and it was raining both days. Therefore, they were postponed a week.This is Mr. Korth's 6th Grade class which Erica is a student in. She was prepared with proper attire, sunglasses, sunscreen, etc. However, she still got sunburned. I guess she didn't reapply often enough.
This is the whole 6th Grade ready for the field events to begin.
Each student may participate in two field events and two running events plus a relay. Ribbons are given for the first six places. Erica chose the long jump, placing 6th, and the Frisbee throw, placing 2nd. After the field events, there was a break for lunch.
For running events, Erica chose the 50 Meter Dash and the 100 Meter Dash. She placed 4th in the 50 Meter and she ran a leg on the 2nd placed 4x100M Relay.
Ms. Freese asked me months ago if I could help at Track and Field Day. I had the head cook do lunch duty for me and I was at the track all day. I ran the Frisbee Throw and helped time running events.
