What to Expect for Field Day

Field Day will be this Friday, and will include outdoor and indoor games, along with a separate morning and afternoon schedule like last year. For the past few years, the PE classes have been planning the day out, and this year is no different. 

“I tell them how many games we need to create and they come up with them on their own,” PE teacher Mrs. Leszczewski said. 

All day, there will be a refresher station in the peak, and board games, movies, Just Dance, and a mental break session are going to be available as well. Outside, Gaga ball, table tennis, and chalk will also continue all day. Almost every event will give you points, even those games without competitive nature can contribute to the overall points. 

“If you want to win, stick with the games that are short, but can get you a lot of points,” junior Edith Lujan said. “Stuff like ping-pong and Gaga Ball will add up.” 

The outdoor morning games include flag football, tug-a-war, soccer and more. The only indoor activity expected to be limited to the morning this year is the video game room.

As of now, there will be a water balloon toss in the afternoon, accompanied by dry Capture the Flag, ultimate football and an obstacle course. Inside there will also be a lively game of “Hungry Hungry Hippos.”

In the spirit of keeping traditions going, the advisories will compete as teams and the team with the most cumulative points in each grade level will win. The prizes this year are still a secret. Remember to bring sunscreen, deodorant, and a towel and dry change of clothes if you plan on participating in any water games. 

“Expect to get wet,” Lujan said. “Even if you don’t think you will, bring something just in case.”
