Description of Idea

Fall Field Day (Teambuilding Day) is arguably more important than the all-time storied end-of-year field day--which we still do. Fall Field Day focuses on team and class building between students and staff is a perfect way to kick off the school year and will sow benefits to be reaped by way of relationships, culture, behavior, and school atmosphere.

This Field Day really helps set the tone for a great year in which we start off all on the same page.
