Gotham Avenue, Polk Street School students have fun at field day


To celebrate the end of the school year with fun outdoor activities, Gotham Avenue School in Elmont and Polk Street School in Franklin Square hosted field days for students.

At Gotham Avenue School, students in grades three through six had fun at field day on May 30. Students were either on the blue team or the white team, as each activity gained them points if they won.

The activities included relays, an obstacle course, Tic-Tac-Toe, Ga-Ga, Fireman’s Fill Up and a water balloon toss, among others. The students were also able to take a break and enjoy a watermelon snack at the rest station.

At Franklin Square’s Polk Street School, students from kindergarten through sixth grade participated in field day between May 30 and 31.

Outdoors, students enjoyed inflatable basketball and baseball games, large Checkers and Jenga, basketball, soccer, Turtle Tag, cornhole, relay races and more. In the gymnasium, students were able to play with scooters and bouncing balls.
