It was a gorgeous day on June 8th to allow fifth graders in all three North Shore elementary schools to gather on the North Shore High School Stadium Field to participate in their fun day! Donned in maroon and white (the North Shore school colors), students formed teams and partnered with their new peers in the different elementary schools to compete in many fun games including a balloon toss, bucket brigade, various track and field races, and tug-of-war– just to name a few!
Not only did everyone have to show good sportsmanship but also the different activities tested running and jumping skills, hand-eye coordination, dexterity and balancing proficiency. Three cheers to all the fifth graders and their physical education teachers who participated in this awesome fun day! They will all come together again at the beginning of the 2017-18 school year at North Shore Middle School! Best of luck to everyone and have a great summer!
