South Orangetown Central School District

South Orangetown Middle School students were out to play in the sunshine today! Sixth-, seventh- and eighth-graders engaged in a number of fun-filled SOMS Field Day activities organized by health/character education teachers Christopher Rastelli and Joseph Napoli. 

“Field Day provides our students an opportunity to be active, have fun and collaborate,” said Principal Chad Corey. “This year has been quite challenging, so this day provides our students the time to unplug together outside the classroom.”

Activities ranged from a hula hoop relay race, to a 50 yard dash, to a javelin throw, to a sponge soaker challenge and students had a blast putting their hand-eye coordination, agility, speed and teamwork to the test.
