Boardman High School graduating seniors celebrated the end of the school year with Field Day on May 22.
Principal Cynthia Fernback said that this is the second year the school has hosted the event.
“We used to have an end of the year swim party, but attendance started to drop off, so we wanted to mix it up,” she said.
Students spent the morning at an Honors Scholarship Assembly and then graduation practice, before making their way over to Spartan Stadium.
Fernback said that students were not required to attend the event, but said that about 80 percent of the class was in attendance.
Throughout the stadium different games were set up, including corn hole, soccer, football and others.
Members of the Boardman High School band also played music during the event.
Fernback said that the school provided food for the students as well.
Options of corn dogs, fried cheese and other fair foods were available to students right outside of the stadium.
A dunk tank was also present at the event, which Boardman teachers and staff members took turns in.
“This class is special,” Fernback said. “The kids are great, and this is just a way for them to go and have fun because they deserve it.”
The seniors last day of school is May 29, with the rest of the school out on June 4.
