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. Field Day

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 and staff.

“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.”
