|Head of School's Message: March 10|
There is a purity about track and field events at the lower and middle school levels that is unmatched by any other sporting activity. Coaches don’t meddle, parents stay reasonably calm and the kids love to participate.
After the Sports-A-Thon last Thursday, a kindergarten parent said that the event was more of a community celebration than she had anticipated. Many parents took time off work to watch their children in the Chandler pentathlon of sprint, hurdles, high jump, long jump and a lap around the field. The In-N-Out line moved slowly but it was good to see so many families having lunch together in Johnson Courtyard before or after the events. In the days leading up to the Sports-A-Thon, the P.E. staff does an excellent job differentiating instruction by sorting the students into evenly matched races. There are no ribbons, medals or speeches. The competition is healthy, and everyone participates.
