This year our Summer Fun Day scheduled for August 12th, has an Olympic theme, which mirrors our summer Physical Education program. On Summer Fun Day, we will have an Equestrian Area (pony rides), Dunk Tank, Aquatics Center (various water games), Art center, Field Events, and Gymnasium (volleyball and obstacle course). There will be free hot dogs and ice cream for all. Various other activities include tattoos, a fire engine, a police car and a sensory center for a quiet space. All the staff, children and families have a fantastic time. We preview and practice some of the events beforehand in Physical Education classes, so that the students know the expectations of each activity, and can help their families. Some of the activities we are doing are shot put (8 lb. ball), hurdles, long jump, broad jump and various relay race distances. We are also incorporating backyard games such as volleyball, badminton, croquet, bocce, Frisbee Kan Jam, and beanbag toss into the program. We use our school Nature Trail on a daily basis during good weather. It is a very peaceful environment with the two bridges passing over streams and providing glimpses of wildlife. The Nature Trail walk also encourages students to talk about Science, along with our fitness and yoga routines. This summer, we have had wonderful weather and have been able to use the new athletic field almost every day. The students are looking forward to demonstrating and sharing their skills with their families on Summer Fun Day.
