It was Green vs. White in an enthusiastic and friendly competition as Farmingdale fifth graders put on their game faces and challenged each other at the district’s first-ever Sports Night on March 6. This inaugural event is a night of fun for students, featuring various athletic games that promote camaraderie, teamwork, and sportsmanship. Fifth graders from the districts four elementary schools; Albany Avenue, Northside, Saltzman East Memorial and Woodward Parkway were divided into two teams – Green and White – and compete in several creative, athletic events, Castle Ball, Basketball Relay, Trench Ball, and a Pursuit Relay. Teams were also scored on sportsmanship and spirit. It was an extremely close race, but in the end, the white team stood victorious.
"Congratulations to all the participants who made Sports Night so successful," said Director of Athletics Jeanne Berkoski. "Thank you to the PE teachers, Farmingdale High School's Varsity Leaders, Dalerettes, Cheerleaders, and building administration for doing an incredible job coordinating the activities and events."
