Elementary Field-Day

On Friday, VCS elementary students enjoyed Field-Day! The students rotated between six different events, testing their speed, strength, and coordination. The Tug-O-War was one of the students' favorite events at Field-Day. In this photo, fifth graders - the BLUE team - use their muscles and a little bit of strategy to pull their way to victory.

At the Sack Race event, students hopped in a sack to the end of the mats and back. Once back at the starting line, the sack was passed to the next teammate and the race continued. The winning team was the first to get all members back across the starting line.

The Sponge Pass was one of the most exciting Field-Day events. Students stood in a line with a full bucket of water at the head of the line and an empty bucket at the end of the line. The first player soaked a sponge in the full bucket. The sponge was then passed in an alternating fashion over one person's head and between the knees of the next person. The last person in line squeezed the water left in the sponge into the empty bucket. When the time limit ended, the team with the most water in the "empty" bucket won.
