At my school, we called it "Joy Day'. That would be the correct Catholic school term for the modern "Field Day".
On Joy Day, we played carnival games, won prizes and ate a boat load of cotton candy. It. Was. Completely. Awesome.
At Audrey's 7th Grade Field Day, yesterday, it was a day of all out competition. Her grade has three teams (throughout the year) and on Field Day, they compete to 'win' the day. Essentially, they compete for best spirit and through 'athletic' events.
Audrey's team color is obviously yellow. And this was created from 5:45-7:30am yesterday before school for the big event.
As of today at 3:00pm, they will be eighth graders.
