On Friday, June 12th, the staff and students of Unity Charter School descended on Collinsville Park for the annual Field Day. Students in K-8 multi-age groups travelled around the park all morning participating in a variety of games. The Drippy Bucket Relay, Noodle Stacking, and Splash Tag provided much needed relief from the hot weather. The always popular Shoe-Fly had students competing to kick their shoe the furthest. Basketball, Four Square, and Newcomb had students using their sports skills to work together. Running bases, Dizzy Bat Races, Potato Sack Races, Hopscotch, Hula Hoops, and Parachutes were stationed around the park. Students were able to participate in a sample of Lawn Games with Bocce, Horseshoes, Ladderball, and Bean Bag Toss. Children were kept energized with popcorn and watermelon provided by the Parent’s Association. The event was enjoyed by all!
