Field Day is the most FUN day of the year, if it is done well. The athletic kids love the competition and place ribbons. But what about the kids who never place first, second or third? There is a life lesson to be learned about doing your best and not winning. Losing with grace is just as important as winning with grace.
Field Day should be a nice mix of competitive and non - competitive events. It is just as fun to have a water fight as it is to win a race. Great memories last forever!
