Gillispie “Gem” of the Week


Last Friday, The Gillispie School’s Spirit Club held its first-ever Field Day!

Students participated in mixed-age teams to compete in fun relay races on our beautiful field. Events included the shoe race, the sack race, and the spoon & egg race. The final event was a cup-with-a-hole relay where teams sent one student at a time to fill a cup (with a hole in it) from a central trough, then raced to fill their team’s bucket.

Preschool classes got in on the fun with an obstacle course on the preschool sport court during their assembly time before heading down to the field to cheer on the older students.

Students wore team colors of red, orange, yellow, green, teal, blue, purple, brown, black, and white, which made the crowd look like a beautiful moving rainbow.
