Matthews Elementary in Sikeston had its last annual end-of-the-year field day Friday on the playground behind the school building. The Sikeston R-6 school’s first through fourth graders bundled up and braved the chilly weather to enjoy some old-fashioned field games like balloon burst, three-legged race, 50-yard dash and potato sack race. The last day of school for Sikeston R-6 is May 17, with an early dismissal.
