Earlier this week I got to experience Splash Down Day at the school I’ll be teaching at next year. I was imagining some water games, maybe a slip n slide, possibly water balloons. Let me tell you…my expectations were completely shattered. This day was over the top fun! There were a number of gigantic slides, a dunk tank, sidewalk chalk, hula hoops, soccer balls, cornhole games, etc. The kids were told the expectations for the day and they were free to play as they wished.
I told the principal this was such an awesome day. He was very humble and replied that the kids worked hard and we wanted to celebrate their great work for the year.
I think it’s important for school communities to celebrate accomplishments and have fun. It was absolutely wonderful to see the kids being kids and enjoying life. Especially after going through their state testing the past few weeks.
Check out some of the awesome slides and activities from Splash Down Day!
