Field Day at Silvia
Field Day 2014 will surely be one to remember! Every classroom chose a country to represent. Students researched their country and had to create their flag. During "Opening Ceremonies" every class paraded around the cafetorium dressed in the colors of their flag. A President and Vice-President of each country lead the march holding the hand-made flag while the national anthem played. The torch, made of mahogany by Jeffrey Cabral, and painted and decorated by Mrs. Johnson, was passed from one country to the next. Mrs. Facchiano had the honor of starting the official games with the announcement, "Let the Games Begin!"
The next day brought sunshine and lots of fun. Students played a new game from a different country every 15 minutes! There was face painting and a cook-out too! Later in the day, the teachers took on the fifth graders for a game of kick-ball!
It certainly was a great way to end the school year! We're already wondering what Mrs. Mahjoory is planning for next year's Field Day!
Have a great summer!
