Field day wraps up school year


June 2, 2022


As the 2021-2022 school year came to a close, the Sundance Elementary students participated in their annual field day at Croell Field.

"We wanted to celebrate a wonderful school year, while demonstrating positive attitudes and kindness," P.E. coach Williamson, the organizer of the event, stated.

Each student got to participate in seven stations, as well as a tug-of-war and a chicken catch (sling shooting rubber chickens into a laundry basket) throughout the day. There were many teachers and volunteers around to help the students in each event.

At the end of the day, the students got a special surprise as they got to watch their teachers participate in some relay events as well. 

The fun field day ended with the Kindergarten class dunking Principal Brian Hartwig in the dunk tank, as a prize for being the top class in the Spell-a-Thon earlier in the year.

"Field day turned out great! Our parent volunteers are amazing!" Williamson said. "This is a big production and there is no way it could have gotten done without them. They are pros. I think the kids had a blast! We live in such a great community! I want to say a big thank you to not only the volunteers but also Kati Sipe, Jessica Rasmussen, Katie Bankenbush, PIC, Sundance State Bank and Deckers for all the help and donations."
