Each May, fifth grade students from across the district come together at the South High School track for a day of fun and competition at Fifth Grade Sports Day.
At this event, each student will be entered in one running event and one field event. All the events will take place before lunch. An obstacle course is scheduled to follow lunch. The boys and girls events will be held separately, with the boys completing the running events first and the girls completing the field events first. Each student will choose his/her running and field event for the day from the list below. Students have been introduced to the various running and field events during physical education class, so hopefully each student will find an event in which they enjoy and can be successful. Ribbons will be awarded to the top ten finishers in each event and every participant will receive a certificate of participation.
This day is meant to be one of fun, excitement, and good sportsmanship! The events are run by current/former Sheboygan Area School District employees and by students from North and South High School. Remember that a true sportsman will always congratulate their competitor whether they win or lose. We hope to see a lot of hand-shaking and high fives, not only among friends and classmates, but also opponents.
