Harry Hoag Elementary
students enjoy games and contests during annual field day
The fields behind Harry Hoag Elementary School were filled with
smiles, laugher, music, and school spirit at the annual field days
on Friday, May 30, which featured games, contests, and prizes.
Each grade – from kindergarten through sixth – wore a different
colored field day T-shirt as classes competed against each other in
games such as a water relay, scavenger hunt, three-legged race,
obstacle course, tug of war, and “dizzy Izzy.” In dizzy Lizzy,
students stood a bat upright on the ground, placed their forehead
on the bat, and circled it before continuing a race.
Students also created signs for each grade, featuring slogs, their
signature and a nickname (Meagan Kane’s fourth grade class
nicknamed themselves the “Kane-Garoos”).
Fifth grade student Autumn Bagley said she looked forward to having
fun with her friends and the entire school.
“This is a time to have fun,” she said.
When asked what she was looking forward to the most, she said “tug
of war” with a big smile.
Principal Cathy Brucker said everyone was ecstatic during the event
and she was proud to see so many happy faces between the students
“The teams worked together all day. It's heartwarming to see our
students working so well together towards a common goal and having
so much fun,” she said.
“That’s the Topper spirit: competition, teamwork and fun.”
