Beginning with a morning parade of “shining stars,” featuring the school’s 730 students, the Sgt. Cornel Young/Charlotte Woods Elementary School enjoyed a fun and sun-splashed Field Day on Wednesday, June 17.
Laughs and smiles were heard and seen from numerous events held across the school’s expansive campus, from races to the giant bouncy slide to the chicken toss to tug-of-war and parachuting. The event’s highlight was the dunk tank, as lines of students paid $1 to try to “dunk” their School Nurse Martha Huston, Assistant Principal Richard Bensusan and Principal Christine Riley. Many of them succeeded!
Funds raised from the dunk tank will be used to help fund field trips and assemblies and assist families in need.
The YMCA, a community partner that provides before and after school programming at Young/Woods, provided music, volunteers and the bouncy slide.
