This year’s 5th Grade Track and Field Meet proved once again to be a huge success. Athletes from Birchwood and Maplewood participated in this annual event that features Sprints, 4x100 Relay Races, Accuracy and Distance Throws, and Standing and Running Long Jumps. It’s here where the district’s Primary School students can participate in track and field events for the first time and learn competition rules.

Some of the highlights from the meet include Maplewood’s Jason Wang taking first place in the 800-meter race with a time of 2:55.1, Maya Rowser and Sherlendy Pierre taking first and second in the distance throw, and the Birchwood boys and girls winning both first and second place in the 4x100m relay races.

Great job by our 5th Grade athletes, you made us all proud of your effort and a wonderful display of sportsmanship! A special thank you to all our Physical Education Teachers and Classroom teachers who assisted in making this annual event so awesome!
