Ask just about anyone about their memories of elementary school and chances are that person will quickly reference field day. What is it about this day that leaves such an impression? Is it a day the represents the school year coming to a close? Does it feel like the antithesis of “school” in some ways? Is it the scarring experience of seeing your teachers in shorts? Any way you slice it field day is special, not only to the kids on the day it happens, but to their lasting impression of being a child at Condit. It’s going to be hot and we are all going to be exhausted when the day is done, but as an adult lucky enough to experience field day again I plan on slowing down a bit today and reflecting on the occassion.
