Field Day 2023
The Great Hearts holistic and humane education seeks to cultivate health and strength in the mind, in the heart, and in the body. To celebrate the latter, Great Hearts Irving Upper School will hold our annual Field Day on Friday, April 15th from 8 am to 3:30 pm!
Field Day is a special day for our students, and we will need A LOT of help to ensure everything runs smoothly. We encourage you to signup to help run one of our many Field Day games, to serve as a nurse’s assistant, and more.
Please note that, in order to keep our teachers and students as safe as possible, Great Hearts Texas requires all on-campus volunteers to complete a background check prior to volunteering. Field Day volunteers who haven’t already completed a background check this school year must be sure to do so prior to Field Day.
Volunteers are encouraged to purchase and wear a Field Day shirt to show their Great Hearts Irving spirit alongside our scholars! The deadline to purchase a field day shirt is Friday, March 10th.
Field Day Shirts
Students compete in Field Day as members of their Houses, so we are selling Field Day shirts according to House colors. The link below will take you to a form to select your scholar’s House and t-shirt size. At the bottom of the form is the payment link. If your scholar does not know what House they belong to, reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org. The deadline to order a field day shirt is Friday, March 10th.
Field Day Attire Guidelines
Due to the athletic nature of Field Day, students are encouraged to wear clothing more appropriate to the day in addition to their Field Day shirt, or any other House or Great Hearts shirt. Please follow these guidelines in choosing what to wear for Field Day.
Student Lunch on Field Day
While hot lunch will be available to students who need it, we strongly encourage all students to bring a sack lunch on Field Day.
Field Day is a day of fun, but rigorous, physical activity! We will have water stations set up outside, but students should be sure to bring water bottles with them to school so that they have convenient access to water whenever they need it.
Bring Cash for Kona Ice
Students will be able to purchase Kona Ice throughout Field Day—during each team’s turn at the rest station and during lunch. You can find prices below.
