Ten brave faculty members from each division competed in the Faculty Relay, including the dizzy bat, two-person hip relay, and more, and thanks to Ms. Brooke Canova, students enjoyed various relays, a bocce tennis throw, hurdles, hula hooping, an egg toss, and an obstacle course.

The grand finale relay included pairings of different grade levels to complete an army crawl, bear and crab walks, bunny hop, inchworm, and the much-anticipated piggyback race.

Thank you to all students, teachers, and parent cheerleaders for making this School tradition a memorable day for all!
