GBMS has been holding the events for the past, 10 years, and it still going strong. Mrs. Shirley, one of the ESE teachers, said “This year was just as good as in the past! It was amazing and the weather was perfect!” The students each ran two races, played tug of war, did sack races and scooter races. A group of helpers that went were, Katie Hoffman, 7th grade, Kenna King, 7th grade, and Sarah Stillman, 7th grade. 

Kenna King, 7th grade, said “It was a nice day outside, and I liked going out there to help and encourage the students to run and have fun.” She thought it was fun being outside and helping with the kids she hangs around every day have fun and enjoy playing with their friends just like she does. 

Sarah Stillman, 7th grade, said “It was really fun bonding with them and experience things that you’ve never done before.” She also stated, “You get to learn how they learn but you still learn with them.”
