Fresh air, exercise and bonding with new classmates – the perfect trifecta created by Falcon Fest, the annual sixth-grade field day held in partnership with the Falcon Pride Booster Club. The sixth graders played volleyball, cornhole, spikeball, crab soccer and ultimate frisbee, working together to not only score, but to have fun and get to know each other.
This year’s Falcon Fest was held on Sept. 10 under bright blue skies, with the sun shining down on Fred Smith Field as the entire sixth grade, along with their teachers, physical education staff and high school student volunteers joined together for the event.
Superintendent of Schools, Kenneth E. Graham, Ed.D. said that Falcon Fest is more than a fun way to start the school year. “For sixth graders entering middle school for the first time, it is important that they are provided with multiple ways in which they can make new friends, bond with their teachers and learn that all Falcons are family.” Dr. Graham added that Falcon Pride is an important cog in the school/community partnership. “Falcon Pride President John Johnson and the entire booster club membership work tirelessly to support our students and we are grateful for the partnership.”
Thank you to Falcon Pride and the Locust Valley Middle School staff for making this event a success!
