SARATOGA SPRINGS — Saratoga Independent School (S.I.S.) recently held two reimagined annual school events to keep traditions strong despite it being an unusual school year.
“In a year with so much uncertainty, we want our students to continue to feel the strong sense of community that defines life at S.I.S. Reimagining our annual school events is a powerful way to accomplish this,” said Lisa Brown, Head of School.
Two of the annual school events recently held at S.I.S. were Field Day and the Vocabulary Parade.
This year’s Field Day, for students in Kindergarten through 5th grade, was held on Friday, October 23 and consisted of socially-distant and safe activities such as hula hoop rolling, mini hurdles, potato sack races, and more.
At their October 30 Vocabulary Parade, the students dressed up as a vocabulary word and paraded the halls of S.I.S. to show off their costumes. Since they could not visit The Home of the Good Shepherd (as they normally would), this year they collected candy to donate to the Schenectady Street Soldiers.
Other annual school events being reimagined this year are the Kite & Flight Festival, Thanksgiving Feast, Grandparent’s Day, Big Night Out Annual Gala, and more.
