National Fiel Day

PITTSBORO Virtually everything’s, well, virtual right now — even field day.

Several physical-education instructors in Chatham County Schools (CCS) are participating in the May 8 Online Physical Education Network (OPEN) National Field Day.

OPEN is a national public-service organization providing curriculum and training to educators. 

Field day is one of those culminating events that serves to put a bow on the school year. National Field Day will enable CCS educators to add some familiarity to what has become a not-so-typical time of teaching and learning. 

National Field Day events are designed to be done either indoors or outdoors using common household items. And while traditional field days have students competing at their respective schools, National Field Day extends the matchups across the country. More details are online at
