By Jen Carcich This year, Unity Charter School had the picture perfect field day! The weather was sunny and warm with a faint breeze blowing. The entire school walked over to Collinsville Park for a morning packed with activities. The children were broken into multi-age groupings K-6 with the 7th and 8th grade students being the group leaders. Group leaders instructed the group how to play each game, made sure everyone had a turn and that the games were played fairly. Teachers facilitated as well but the day was very much student lead. Shoe fly, parachute games, wet noodle tower and the wet sponge relay were just some of the great activities. Our PE teacher, Alyssa, had all of the children practice the games in during PE in the weeks before field day. The Parent Association provide watermelon and veggie sticks for snack. This year the events ended with a water balloon toss with teams comprised of eighth grade students and the staff member of their choice. It was a very close competition, but in the end Danielle and Ethan were the winning staff/student pair. It was a great way to end out final full week of school.
