As a fun culmination to the school year, Covert Avenue School students played together on the playground, tested their skills in relay races and enjoyed various sports during Field Day on June 14.

Excited cheers and laughter were heard across the school’s field, as students wet sponges and squeezed them into a container to get a pingpong ball to rise to the top in the Fireman’s Bucket Relay, went over and under a limbo stick in the Over-Under Relay and stacked large cups as quickly as possible in the Jumbo Stacks Relay. Students also played volleyball and gaga.
