In the days before the Big Flea and Field Day were operated as separate events, the school had a giant Field Day and White Elephant sale (top photo) on the campus grounds. The focus in the early years was on fun. Field Day was an event where each class had a money-raising project. Students could participate in tug of war, relay races, and teacher dunking booths. The hope was that the two events would provide a day of fun and camaraderie among parents and students while raising a few thousand dollars for the school.
