Field Day

On Friday, May 6, Conway High School’s Interact Club hosted a field day for its special needs students. The school’s Interact Club, cheerleading squad, and Inkling staff gathered together with the students to ensure that they enjoyed all of the different activities laid out for them. There were multiple stations set up, including a tricycle race, scooter race, water balloon toss, water relay, and sidewalk chalk drawing.

The day began at 11:45 with a lunch of hotdogs, cookies, and chips. Everyone ate and then the games began. The students rotated between stations, competing in races and tosses. A dress up relay was set up where the students put on a number of funky outfits and raced each other. A tug of war was also held, and everyone participated in this event. The event was capped off with a water balloon fight that left everyone soaking wet and bubbling with happiness. The field day was a complete success, and all of the students enjoyed the time the spent playing outside. Special Education teacher K. Cavallini said, “Overall, [special ed field day] was the most organized, most energetic event that Mrs. Myers and her team has put on thus far. Everyone took something positive from it.”
