The traditional celebration of the sports day has been a TCS classic for over 20 years, but for the first time, this year’s will be tested with a huge change.

The annual event dedicated completely to games and team spirit was held June 8th from 10:30 am to 2:30 in the afternoon for the Elementary students.

“Sports day is an activity held for Elementary School children to see what they have developed this school year and what was improved at the physical level,” said Edwin Vasquez, Upper Elementary P.E. teacher, also known as “Negro”.

Last friday this historic event had both positive and negative backlash regarding the massive changes on its planning and structure for the well being of teacher and the event itself.

“This year we unfortunately changed the methodology because of the amount of people involved; we already have almost 550 children so we divided them better into two groups so that the teachers could work more effectively and have more control over the student, as well as the lack of space in case of rain,” commented Negro.

Despite the changes, the participants hadn’t lost their enthusiasm and spirit for the event some had been a part of on previous years and others who were just being introduced to it. For the participants it is more than the just games; it is the whole experience which includes signing their teammates’ colorful shirts and giving them their personal touch by ripping it.

“For us it is very fun because of the t-shirts and the teams. It is really cool since it is our last Sports Day,” Said Jeronimo Vasquez, 5A student from TCS, “I really enjoy all the activities and games we play as a team and signing and ripping shirts,” Vasquez stated when asked about what it meant for him.

For other students including 5th grader Matias Mejia, the change wasn’t so positively welcomed. For him, Sports Day should be as its name states, a complete day devoted to games and fun activities instead of simply two hours.

“I didn’t really like the half of the day because although we are going to do some activities, it should still be all day long,” Mejia explained, “for my opinion, It should stay Sports Day like all past years.”
