Above right, students at Acorn Montessori Charter School took part in an end-of-the-year field day at Mountain Valley Park on May 21 where they participated in nine activities, including the shoe fling event.
Other games were kickball, duck-duck-goose, shaking ping-pong balls out of Kleenex boxes strapped to their backs, and numerous types of relays.

The top speed for a Dwarf Class runs typically 80mph and this year's line-up features a cartoon theme. Bottom right, students line up to view the Beatle Bailey military appreciation car, sponsored by the Veterans Administration.
