It was a beautiful day to have the annual Challenge Charter Schools Field Day, on Friday, June 22nd. We welcomed our almost 800 scholars, parent volunteers, staff, administrators and special guests to Bayswater Park for the festivities. The Parent Association and key staff members worked for months to plan the event, and our coaches created fun athletic field day stations to go along with the traditional bouncy houses and slides.
Dr. Mullings, Founder and CEO served as host, thanking sponsors and special guests from our Board of Directors such as Ben Waxman and local leaders such as Councilman Donovan Richards. Local sponsors included Herman's Deli, Chipotle in Lawrence, McDonald’s in Five Towns, Stop & Shop, The Corner Donut Coffee Shop and CostCo.
The theme for 2018 was “Take a Stand” to join with students and families in our community and across the nation who stand against gun violence and are advocating for better safety at schools. Scholars participated in the theme on the day of the event by putting their hand prints on a large banner that read, “Take a Stand.”
The June event celebrated the full charter for Challenge Preparatory Charter School with grades kindergarten through 8th grade represented. Challenge Charter Schools thanks our local sponsors and everyone who donated time, supplies, and food to make Field Day 2018 a success.
