Alamosa Elementary concluded the school year with a field day of fun Thursday. A slip-n-slide, relays, bike rides, potato sack races and a fire truck blasting water were all part of the excitement of the last day.

The principals promised their students if they hit their reading goals, they'd get wet. AES 3-5 students surpassed their goal by reading and taking AR quizzes on over 32,000 books, while K-2 students accomplished theirs with 12,000 books.
