There were shouts of “Go, eighth-graders, go!” and “Kin-der-garten! Kin-der-garten!” as about 250 kids took to the fields on Friday morning, May 30 at Holy Redeemer School in Montrose for the third annual Olympic Games Day.
The event was coordinated by eighth grade teacher Nelson Wong and is a way to build team spirit and competition among the young people.
“We have a lot of games and a lot of fun and it’s a great day,” Wong said.
The activities pitted grade levels against other grades and united older students with the little kids.
“We’re a big family here,” said Eva Dulcich, an eighth-grader who participated in several activities with her own class as well as helping out with the first and second grade children’s competitions. “It’s really fun because we’re really close to the littler kids and they know we’re supporting them so they get all pumped up,” Dulcich said. “I love the Olympic games.”
