On Wednesday, May 24, Villa Maria Academy Lower School students enjoyed a beautiful day outside for the first inaugural Field Day! The school was split into 4 teams with students from each grade level. Students competed in levels first, before ending the day with a hula hoop game involving teams of Kindergarten through Eighth graders. The game required a lot of patience and cooperation amongst peers, but the girls worked great together. Everyone had such a fun time and showed great sportsmanship, teamwork and school spirit.
Congrats to the Eighth grade on their victory over the teachers and volunteers in tug-of-war, and congrats to the blue team on their win for the day. All the girls played so hard!
To celebrate Villa’s 145th anniversary, the day ended with a speech from Villa’s principal honoring the history, as the students sang “Happy birthday to Villa” and enjoyed dessert and dancing.
