First-grade teacher Autumn Palmer is supervising at left. Field day is an annual event and tradition for preschool through sixth grade students that is held during the last week of school. Exeter High School students and Exeter Coach Colt Higgs organize and schedule the event, which involves different outdoor field events to let the students' athletic abilities shine. Several events are held, and students can receive a first, second or third-place ribbon at stations, such as the Long Run (aka fastest tiger), the noodle javelin throw, ball toss throw, home run derby, potato sack race, and relay races including egg race, sponge race, and water balloon race where the kids work together as a team.
