Union — The end of the school year brings much excitement and extra energy to burn off for elementary students.

Union Elementary School, along with many other area schools, held field days to close out their final days before summer vacation. The breezy warm weather of June 18 kept the pesky bugs away and made for a great atmosphere to run, jump, hop, throw and whatever else was on the agenda.

June 19 was the last day of school.
