On April 26, 2012, the Fifth grade students of Art City Elementary went to Hershey Track,which was held at the Springville High School track. Students run around the track, throw softballs, do thestanding long jump, meet new friends, and see other friends that go todifferent schools. A few months beforeHershey Track, the students of third, fourth, fifth, and sixth grade are givena form to fill out, that have choices of events you can do. For Fifth-grade you can choose from 100 Meter, 200 Meter, 400 Meter and 800 Meter; Softball Throw and the Standing Long Jump. You will pick which race or races you want to do, and you can choose to do either both the softball throw and the standing long just, or just do one of them. Hershey Track is a really fun place to go. At the Hershey Track Meet students get to meet new friends. Everyone can't wait to go to Hershey Track next year!
