Bright Plan B Field Day a Big Success

The 2014 MEHMS Field Day started off the morning going to "Plan B" due to poor field conditions following a downpour of rain the night before.  But it didn't dampen the mood for the Huskies, sporting their brand new (and bright!) Field Day t-shirts, designed by 7th Grader James Obusan (pictured right).

Students participated in games indoors such as Indiana Jones, Richochet, Basketball, Volleyball, Gator Ball, and Nookem.  They were treated to popcorn at the concession stands, Sno-Cones, and Robeks Smoothies!  And last but not least, the Huskies all took a turn trying to dunk their teachers in the Dunk Tank!  Mrs. Carson's 6th grade homebase class dunked Science teacher Ms. Smolarek 12 times - more than any other class during the day!

A special thank you goes out to all of the 2014 MEHMS Field Day sponsors: MEH PTA, GM Athletics Boosters, Tori McKinney ROCK STAR Realty, DKG Design, Robeks, Mid Atlantic Adventures,
