Fifth-grade students prepare to run in a track eventFifth graders from all of ISD 199’s elementary schools got together this May for Fifth-Grade Track and Field Day. The annual event aims to introduce students from different schools to each other and give them an idea of the opportunities that await them at Inver Grove Heights Middle School. It also gives students a chance to get outside and celebrate their graduation from elementary school.

Students from Hilltop Elementary School, Pine Bend Elementary School, Salem Hills Elementary School, and the Atheneum Gifted Magnet Program participated in track and field events in Spartan Stadium at Simley High School. They tried long jump, discus, relays, sprints, and long distance events with the help of Simley Track and Field athletes. Fifth graders had a great time getting active in different events of their choice and cheering on their classmates.

After having their own track and field day, fifth-grade students will help run K-4 Fun Day events for kindergarten through fourth-grade students at their own elementary schools later this year.
