This year's Splash Bash occurred on the football practice field and featured an obstacle course, Soak the Flag (a variation of capture the flag pitting students against faculty members), board games, prize drawings and a number of other activities.
"It's an annual back-to-school tradition," Middle School Principal Tamra Walker said. "It's a good chance for our kids to socialize with each other and our teachers."
The GMS Parent Teacher Organization purchased prizes for the event, including gift cards for iTunes, Burger King and Walmart.
There was also a drawing to win a Super Soaker water gun.
The students were divided into two groups -- sixth-graders were first, followed by seventh and eighth -- and spend the afternoon enjoying the end of their summer.
Each child also received a popsicle.
