Although schools are closed for the remainder of the school year, students from Valley Stream District 30 have found creative ways to stay active and connect. Facilitated by the district’s physical education teachers, Clear Stream Avenue, Forest Road and Shaw Avenue students collaborated in a full week of virtual field day challenges from June 1-8.

During the fun-filled week, students were encouraged to participate in 12 events at home with two events held each day. Students were able to access the virtual field day challenges through Google Classroom where they could watch a descriptive video of their task, participate in the event using materials found at home and then complete a Google Form with their scores. They engaged in activities such as the 3-3-3 Cup Stack, Bag Hop, Flip Challenge, Laundry Ball, Towel Minute Jump and Water Bucket Relay.

“We all take tremendous pride in our typical Field Days in our own buildings and this collaborative effort, in some ways, is the most gratifying of all of them,” said Forest Road physical education teacher Kerry Ann Brady. “It is nice to see it all come together and witness the tremendous amount of participation taking place. It is always our pleasure to deliver community wide events at the highest of levels.”
