Fairgrieve ends the year with Game Day

Students in grades kindergarten through sixth bonded over fun activities during Fairgrieve’s recent Game Day. Classes in this end-of-the-year tradition competed with one another in a variety of activities and challenges such as a torch relay, sack and three-legged race, balancing games, and more. The last stop on their Game Day route was for popsicles donated by the Parent-Teacher Organization. Above at left, second-grader Brogan Quirk and Easton Kent (background) balance baseballs on a Frisbee during a relay race at the annual Fairgrieve Elementary Game Day. The frisbee carry was just one of eight team-based activities that students competed in. At right, Hailey Jenkins is perfectly poised as she navigates the course for the torch relay during the Fairgrieve Elementary School Annual Game Day.
