Teachers, faculty and administrators at Hannibal’s Fairley Elementary School applauded their students’ academic and personal growth throughout the school year with celebratory events in June.
In what has become an annual tradition in the district, students participated in field days where they enjoyed a variety of art, music and physical education activities.
Children created artwork with chalk and got their heart rates up during relay races.
While students worked on their physical fitness during field days, teachers burned a few calories themselves during a dance performance to the song “Happy” on Celebration Day.
The dance number came during a school-wide assembly that recognized students for their positive behavior throughout the school year.
“I wanted to thank you for the way you’ve treated each other, the way you’ve behaved this year,” Principal Jody Musa told the students prior to inviting the teachers to take center stage for their dance routine. “I hope you enjoy the day.”
