"It's a great day of fun for them and it's a change from the everyday curriculum."
Following the relay, students took off to the back field for some potato-sack racing.
"It's awesome, because I love sports," seventh-grader Mary Senstad said.
Classmate Bradley Beyer joined Mary and several others in watching the potato-sack race from the shade of a pine tree.
"It's really entertaining and it gets kids active," Beyer said of the events.
To show support for the day, some students added a little extra flair to their school attire.
"They really got into it this year with face painting and everything," Fite said.
Eighth-grader Walker Fitch — who served as his class's 'mascot,' as he injured his leg and could not participate — wore face paint and a traditional Russian hat to represent his country's theme.
While students were out in the field, several parents watched from the sidelines, cheering them on.
"It's great. I always like to come to be here for them," said Cristina Dietz, who came to watch her son Daniel participate in the events.
The games also consisted of a Sponge-Bob Marathon, where students attempted to fill a 2-liter soda bottle by squeezing out a sponge, and a game of Tug-of-War.
As the time is drawing closer for school to let out for the summer, some students thought Olympics Day was a fun way to wrap up the semester.
"It's that one day we work really hard for all year," eighth-grader Nicky Colluva said.
