Field Day was a bit different this year, but BCS schools found ways to make the elementary hallmark memorable.

While following COVID safety procedures, schools held their Field Days inside and outside, with individual classes and whole grade levels, on one day or over several. At Charles C. Bell Elementary School (CCBES), students chased each other in “duck duck splash,” tossed frisbees, danced, and worked together in “time machine relay” and “leaky pipe half pipe.”

“The activities embodied social emotional learning and were a great opportunity for staff and students to create memorable moments,” said CCBES Principal Danny Fusco.

At Hominy Valley Elementary School (HVES), classes competed separately in eight “Olympic-style” games, like long kick, long throw, a 40-yard dash, and a “curling” game. Students in each class created their own team flag and brought it to each competition.

“I’ve seen a lot of kids leaning on each other, focusing on teamwork, and cheering each other on,” said HVES physical education teacher Andrew “Coach” Rogers. “They’re stepping up to show good sportsmanship and school spirit.”

Thanks to the specials teams and other staff members who filled these Field Days with school spirit!
