A Look Back at Six Flags Over Hartfield: Homecoming 2020
Hartfield students stepped into a world of excitement a few weeks ago as the celebrated Homecoming Week at Six Flags Over Hartfield! While Homecoming in the year 2020 will go down in Hartfield history as a different than normal year, to be sure, this year's Homecoming Week held its own special fun. Enjoy the ride as we relive our favorite moments from Homecoming Week 2020!
Homecoming comes with a jam-packed week of meaningful tradition and much-needed break in routine for many schools, and Hartfield is no exception. Our K3 through 12th graders fully got into the spirit of the week's festivities by coming to school decked out according to each day's theme: Mixtape Monday, Tomorrowland Tuesday, Safari Kingdom Wednesday, Tacky Tourist Thursday, and Spirit Day Friday. Classrooms were full of Hartfield Hawks dressed in costumes that fit each theme - recording artists and singalong characters, robots and aliens, safari animals and explorers, tacky tourists of all kinds, just to name a few! We closed out the week with school spirit extravaganza on Friday, which got us all ready to cheer on the Hawks to victory later that day.
Not only were students encouraged to dress up each day, but there were also daily activities we could enjoy together. With masks on and safety precautions enacted, students either took part in or watched activities such as teacher vs. student tournaments, large outdoor games, talent shows, and other exciting afternoon events. The week was a thrill ride of daily fun, and we can't wait to do it again next year.
Such a fun week was made even better by an impressing 55-17 Hawk victory over East Rankin, as well as a halftime crowning of Cailey Walker as Homecoming Queen. Congratulations, Cailey, and Go Hawks!
We cannot wait to see what next year's Homecoming will bring. Thanks to the Hartfield Administration, many faculty and parent volunteers, and Hartfield Student Council for making "Six Flags Over Hartfield" happen!
