A great event, again

 

There are few events on the school calendar each year that are as fun and uplifting as Bridges Field Day.

The Bridges classes teach the district’s most physically- and mentally-challenged students, offering a nurturing educational environment.

And Field Day, this year held at Wewahitchka Jr./Sr. High School, is something of a climax to the school year, providing an opportunity for the Bridges elementary and high school students to enjoy a morning of games and friendly competition.

From shooting baskets to relay races performed on small rolling dollies, the students had a blast, irrepressible smiles abounding, and finished the field day with a festive lunch.

Centennial Bank provided the food and the Gulf County Sheriff’s Office provided the cooking hands for the meal. --- Words and photos by Tim Croft | The Star
