The Junior Olympics has been a part of Lower Merion School District's Elementary Physical Education program for more than 60 years. Each spring, fourth- and fifth-grade students participate in a track & field unit and, upon completion of that unit, take part in a fun-filled culminating activity as all six elementary schools gather at Lower Merion High School's Arnold Field for a day exciting and competitive events, including the Tug-of-War, High Jump, Long Jump, 60 Yard Dash, the 4 x 100 Relay and more.

Gladwyne Elementary School Health & Physical Education teacher Adam Miller also happened to bring a special aerial drone camera to this year's fifth grade event, which he used to film and and produce the AMAZING video below! Special thanks to Mr. Miller for all of his extra hard work putting this together! (Click here for a web accessible audio description of the video.)
