Students at Hubble cap the year with annual Field Day


Students at Hubble Elementary were thrilled to get outside to participate in Field Day at R.A. Barr Stadium. With Coach Athena Neptune and a slew of other teachers leading the event, kids had a wonderful day full of competition on Tuesday, May 23rd.

Six stations of activities were put up around the field including a station for spoon and egg carry, group parachute, and a tug of war/Gatorade station for rest. Each station was attended by individual classrooms ran by different members of Hubble Staff. Each class also participated in a 50-yard dash with the fastest boy and girl of each classroom being awarded a ribbon for their effort.

Students enjoy all the stations, but the parachute has remained a Field Day favorite for the better part of Coach Neptune’s 23 year tenure.

“They love the parachute,” Neptune said with a smile. “They have always loved that parachute.”

Standouts at Field Day were the classroom’s fastest boy and girl for the 50-yard dash.

Students will also miss Coach Neptune’s familiar face heading Field Day for Hubble Elementary. After 23 Field Days, Coach Neptune is passing the torch and entering retirement.

In speaking of her time leading the Field Day activities, Coach Neptune chuckled as she relayed a story of when she dressed as the Greek goddess Athena, a play on her name.

“I had the long flowing robe, my hair was curly and I had this wreath around my head,” Coach Neptune laughed. “The kids go, ‘Coach Neptune, are you Jesus?’”
