The Atkinson school gymnasium was filled with students and parents on Oct. 18 for the school’s fifth-grade sports night. The school’s Schoolwide Events Committee encouraged teachers and students to wear jerseys or sports shirts during the day to support the event and increase enthusiasm.

Ms. Shelley, Mr. May, Mr. Cellan and Ms. Costanzo led the spirited competition for all who wanted to participate. Many teachers’ zealous energy added to making the night a success. In addition to parents and teachers, district administrators and siblings of participating students also attended the event and cheered loudly for those giving 100 percent. The PTA offered healthy snacks and water while welcoming new members and selling Atkinson apparel. The best part of the night is that everyone played hard and each person left a winner.
