It was all smiles and cheers at Greentree Elementary School on Tuesday, June 12.

The school held a track and field event to encourage athletics in their students.

"We started this new format last year on the basis that we wanted to make sure the kids had some track and field experience before heading off to junior high school, and also to have a half a day where they get to enjoy the outside." said teacher Rob Hegberg.

Grades 4-6 competed in the 50, 100, 200, and 400 meter races and were glad to be outside instead of in the classroom.

"I ran all of the of the events. So I did the 50, 100, 200, 400 and the 4 by 100 relay," said student Ava Harrington.

All of the students ran the events together; when they reached the finish line, the times of the first place male and female were recorded.

"We were doing relays and we did the 50 meter, 100 meter and the 200 meter. I won all my races." said Brennan Phillips.

The school will tally up all of the results from the day and give out ribbons on June 13.
