Field Day Fun!

Field Day Fun!

COOPERSVILLE MI - Bronco Field days are always a favorite with Coopersville Students. Sunshine and fun competitive sports make it a great day for kids and parent volunteers alike. Having all grades on one campus helps facilitate the festivities. Some Middle School students come and volunteer their services for the day. The field events are designed so that everyone can suceed. You need not look any further than the smiles on the youngsters faces to see how much fun they are having. A big thank you to Mrs. Zemaitis for all the planning and all the parent Volunteers for helping to make this day a big success!
