Does your kid's school still have field day?
Every year just before the end of school, the school hosts a field day with sporting event competitions where all the elementary students participate for a chance to win ribbons or trophies. My daughter's in 8th grade this year so it's her last year to join in the fun of this, but she says it's not going to be fun at all, really, amounting to little more than a big party rather than a competitive event. She also said the teachers are giving ribbons to everyone who shows up, rather than awarding any winners for things. So I'm probably going to let her just stay home since she has no interest in playing on the inflatable (especially after the recent accident where kids were carried up into the air by one and dropped out several feet from the ground!), or on the water slide they say they're going to have.
Does your kid's school still have a field day? If so, is it still a competitive type thing or is it more of an overdone playdate?
