Field Day 2019

The start of spring at Harrisburg Academy means the approach of Field Day for students in Kindergarten through 8th grade!  This year's Field Day is Friday, May 24 at 9:15 a.m., and all parents are invited to come cheer on our students.  All Kindergarten, Lower School, and Middle School students are assigned to either the Blue or Gold team and compete for their respective team.  Preschool and Junior Kindergarten students will join the fun by participating in a Mini Field Day, but are not assigned to the Blue or Gold team.  Classroom teachers have been in touch with Preschool and JK parents about special dress code for Field Day activities.  If you are unsure which team your student is on, please contact your classroom teacher (for Kindergarten and Lower School students) or Chris Clark (for Middle School students).


Schedule / Logistics of the Day

**Per the school calendar, Friday is a half-day of school for students of all divisions. All students should report to school at the regular time.  Middle and Upper School students will attend 1st period and should then report to the field.  All students will be dismissed at 12:30 p.m., after the picnic that follows Field Day.  All students are expected to leave after lunch, unless registered for Extended Day Program.  Additionally, students who ride the bus at 3 p.m. or need afternoon coverage for other reasons are welcome to stay.  Please note:  Central Dauphin and Susquenita will NOT be providing bus transportation that afternoon.


Questions?  Please contact your division head (Abby Mahone, EC/LS; John Binnert, MS/US).



To make sure your student is ready to represent either Blue or Gold, be sure to order a Field Day t-shirt ($10 each). THANK YOU to art teacher, Jeff Copus, for providing this year's design!

All orders must be placed by Sunday, May 12.
