Galion Elementary PTO Field Days May 18 and 19

May 17, 2017

Each year, the Galion Elementary Parent-Teacher Organization (PTO) organizes and hosts a Field Day for students in both the Galion Primary and Intermediate Schools. This year’s events will take place on May 18 for the Galion Primary School, while the Galion Intermediate School event is set for May 19.

The Field Day is designed to be a day of fun and relaxation for both students and teachers. Students participate in many activities during the day at both the Intermediate and Primary Schools. Elementary School Physical Education teacher Matt Tyrell works with the PTO to develop the Field Day activities for the students.

“Field Day is a long-standing tradition of fun and friendly competition in our Elementary Schools,” said Elementary PTO Treasurer Bryan Summer. “Mr. Tyrell does a fantastic job developing games and activities to help achieve the goal of allowing students and staff the opportunity to unwind after a long, successful school year.”

Some of the activities for students at the Primary School during Field Day include sack races, sponge races, face painting, golf ball spoon races and inflatable bounce houses. Students at the Intermediate School will enjoy activities that include tricycle races, football throwing competition, basketball games, corn hole and bocce ball just to name a few.

“The Galion Elementary PTO does a great job supporting the educational programs at both the Intermediate and Primary Schools,” said Superintendent Jim Grubbs. “We are grateful for the PTO, and hope our students and staff enjoy a well-deserved day of fun and excitement.”
