Remember how much fun we had on Field Day?

Brunswick County Public Schools in conjunction with the Brunswick Health Ambassadors sponsored the Amazing Chase on Friday, Oct. 11, 2019 at the Brunswick High School Athletic Field. The weather was perfect for activities such as tug-of-war, egg relay, wheelbarrow races and just having fun. There was no technology in sight, a welcome change from today’s daily routine.

LAWRENCEVILLE - Brunswick County Public Schools in conjunction with the Brunswick Health Ambassadors sponsored the Amazing Chase on Friday, Oct. 11, 2019 at the Brunswick High School Athletic Field. It was an awesome field day event for the school system and the community.

According to information provided by Leorie K. Mallory, Director of Pupil Personnel Services, the theme was the “Minion Mile Challenge”. Elementary school students (Pre K - 5th) participated in activities such as the egg relay, wheelbarrow contest, sack race, water jug relay, tug-a-war, dance it out, etc. to get the students up and moving to improve their health. There were nine different events that students could compete or participate in with their classmates against other classes from across the county. The classes for each grade level with the best times received the “Banana Award” and all students received a “Minion Medallion”. Opening ceremonies were led by Brunswick High School JROTC. The culminating activity was the “Minion Mile” 4 x100 walking boxcar relay, which consisted of the school faculty/staff and central services competing in boxcars they constructed themselves. The winner of the relay received the Minion Trophy, which they can keep and place on display until the next Amazing Chase in 2020.
