Van Holten students had themselves a Field Day during their fun outside

It is that time of the year when the students in the Bridgewater-Raritan Regional School District are itching to embrace playing on the fields and playgrounds outside their schools.

Those enjoyable activities kicked off under bright sunshine and blue skies in the school district on Friday, May 24, when Field Day was held at three primary schools.

Students and staff engaged in various fun activities during Field Day at Crim, Milltown, and Van Holten Primary Schools.

The staff, as well as Parent Teacher Organization (PTO) members, were all on hand and soaking in the warm weather while the students participated in such games as volleyball, potato sack race, water sponge race, capture the flag, corn hole, and tug of war.

And the students were cooled off by water sprayed on them from a hose held by their health and physical education teachers. 

Dave Guglietti, who is the Bridgewater-Raritan Regional School District Supervisor of Health and Physical Education, was among the many in the crowd who appreciated the events that provided plenty of positive noise from the participants. 

"Crim, Van Holten, and Milltown kicked off our Field Day season, and each school did such a great job planning the event,” Mr.  Guglietti said. “The kids had a great time and were able to enjoy the great weather, too!"


All seven primary schools and both intermediate schools in the school district sponsor a Field Day.


The schedule for the primary schools is:
 Adamsville on May 31, Hamilton on June 6, Bradley Gardens on June 10, and John F. Kennedy on June 11.


The intermediate schools will hold Field Day at Eisenhower on June 12 and Hillside on June 13.
