It was a sea of rainbow colors as eighth-graders from Lynbrook North and Lynbrook South middle schools gathered together for field day and a BBQ courtesy of the school PTA’s on June 8. The heat did not stop the students from showing their spirit as North Middle School students met the South Middle School students onto their field and joined forces as teams of red, orange, yellow, green, blue and purple were assembled.
Dressed in their team colors with face paint and fun accessories, the students engaged in a friendly competition of team building activities. Events included silly races, a 50-yard dash, four-by-four relay, an over under relay, dizzy izzy, a water balloon toss and tug-of-war. Teams were encouraged to showcase sportsmanship throughout the day and collaborate together.
