As the school year comes to a close many Region 8 schools are hosting field days.

Highland Middle Schools hosted their field day on Friday, May 13.

The students played several different games like kickball, track and field, playground games and a basketball tournament.

Last year field day was actually rained out so the students were excited to finally get a day to play.

Instead of actual rain one basketball team was raining threes.

"We have done track things and played kickball and just hung out at the park”, said 7th grader Kaden Renihan. “It has just been a really fun day.”

This particular basketball team made special shirts inspired by Chief Meteorologist Ryan Vaughan.

All the students thanked the middle school principal, Mrs. Paulette Carouthers, for the day of fun.

After a glimpse of the nice weather and being outside the students are now looking forward to summertime.
