Fifth grade fun in the sun

Savannah Vasquez

Thursday morning saw hundreds of fifth grade students pour onto the Destin Middle School track field ready for some healthy competition.

The students were grouped into eight teams, each with a different theme, and each with the desire to come in first place in the annual field day.

For two hours the teams competed in water games, sack, jump rope, spin-the-bat and hula hoop races be-fore cooling off with a frozen popsicle. Spirits were high as the kids rallied around their teammates and celebrated the fun day under the Florida sun.
