Seventh grade students at St Rose of Lima School were waiting at each station of the school’s Field Day on Monday, June 16.
It is tradition at the school for the seventh graders to oversee the stations. New to this year’s field day were basketball and hockey stations, where participating students lined up to take their turns scoring.
Across the field, at the school students also tested their aim by running to meet a moving soccer ball and kick it into the net.

The wail of police sirens, radio announcements (in oddly young voices) to “Pull over and put your hands up!” and the honking of fire truck horns that carried out to Church Hill Road from behind Hawley School, Friday, May 30 was no cause for alarm. It was all part of the fun of Hawley School Field Day, with Officer McGowan of the Newtown Police Department and Hook &d Ladder Company volunteer fire fighters Daniel Tomascek and Tarren Horvath educating Newtown’s youngest citizens on the roles of Newtown emergency departments.
