Home is Where the HART is: A Look Back at Homecoming Week 2023

Hartfield students stepped into a world of excitement last week as they celebrated Homecoming Week! Both students and faculty enjoyed games, activities, and the most fun dress-up days. Enjoy the ride as we relive our favorite moments from Homecoming Week 2023!
Homecoming comes with a jam-packed week of meaningful tradition and a 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: Home Team Monday, Hometown Heroes Tuesday, Chillin with My Homies Wednesday, Home Away From Home Thursday, and Spirit Day Friday. Classrooms were full of Hartfield Hawks dressed in costumes that fit each theme - real life local hero costumes, tacky tourist leis and crazy colored outfits, and sports jerseys of all kinds, just to name a few! We closed out the week with a school spirit parade 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. Students either took part in or watched activities such as powder puff football, a large outdoor tailgate, Family Feud, and other exciting afternoon events. This week was full of daily fun, and we can’t wait to do it again next year!
In addition to our yearly games, it was the first year to welcome back Hawks who graduated from Hartfield 10 years ago. It was a sweet time welcoming back those who were a part of the very first Hartfield graduating class!
Such a fun week was made even better by an impressive 35-7 Hawk victory over Lafayette, as well as a halftime crowning of Anna Kat Berch as Homecoming Queen. Congratulations, AK, 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 the Hartfield Student Council for making "Home is Where the HART is" happen!
