Getting Schools Together in a Multi-School District

This is one of my all-time favorite events each year.  It’s our fourth-grade track meet.  We have six elementary schools who geographically are pretty spread out.  Getting everyone together in one place is kind of a big deal!
Several years ago the track meet took place for only one of our schools.  During the event, they would bring out this old record board and you could see that at one time all the schools participated.  After some talking, some planning and some amazing support we were able to bring back the district-wide participation in this event and it has run that way for the last three years.
I can’t do it justice in words, but there’s an importance to getting everyone together in one place.  There’s a distinct value or benefit beyond the five hours that we are there together.
