R.L.Norton Elementary School Holds its Annual Field Day

From Snellville, Georgia

Life's lessons starts early at Norton Elementary School.While learning is primarily graded on an individual student basis,the

Faculty and Staff at Norton knows the importance of teamwork.Being able to work well with others and to make strategic planning as a group will help to round out students as they go forward in life.

September 15,2008 marked a day of fun and competition at R.L. Norton Elementary school in Snellville,Georgia. inside Gwinnett County.It was Sports Day!

They are usually held in the warmer seasons, either at the beginning or towards the end of the academic year. They are also called field days, hence the phrase "to have a field day".

The morning started off with several challenges from the Hoola Hoop and Football Tossing to Jumping Hurdles and running the 50 yard dash.Students were given the whole day to get in some real good exercise.After a short day of classroom instruction and a chance to have a nurishing lunch,the students reappeared on the recreation field to culminate the day in the fabled Tug-A-War.

The emphasis in a few of the activities is on skill; but the emphasis in all the activities is on achieving success and having fun! Having a Field Day is a way to pass the time faster and have the kids burn off some extra energy.

(pictured) Miss LaSandra White's 5th Grade Class came in 2nd Place in the school's "Tug-A-War" contest.
