Bright Smiles Shine on 3rd Annual MCOE Field Day

Field Day 3

The clouds were out, but bright smiles were shining on the morning of May 11, 2016, for the 3rd Annual MCOE Field Day.

Nearly 200 special education students from locations throughout Monterey County in grades 1 through 12 from the Monterey County Office of Education participated in field day events themed “If I Had Fun, I Won!” at Rabobank Stadium in Salinas.

The ball throw, turbo javelin, standing long jump, and multiple wheel chair races and running events filled the morning specifically designed for moderately to severely disabled students. Each activity is a part of the students’ physical education throughout the year. High school students from Carmel High School once again served as volunteers to assistant the MCOE Adapted Physical Education teachers who coordinated all of the games and festivities.

“Field Day is a unique opportunity for special education students to enjoy physical activities with their peers throughout the day, and gain a sense of self confidence and pride,” said Dr. Nancy Kotowski, Monterey County Superintendent of Schools, who welcomed the crowd of students, staff members, and families cheering on their participants.

The morning was filled with excitement, fun, and lots of anticipation for next year. Great job to all who participated and coordinated such a wonderful day!
