On the last day of school, all students, staff, family, and friends gather to be part of the 8th grade graduation. There is a featured speaker, often an alumna(e). This festive occasion serves as an informal reunion as many alumni return to campus.
In keeping with a long-standing Harford Day tradition, each student is placed on the HDS Blue Team or Green Team upon enrollment. Immediately following the Graduation ceremony, students in K-Prep – fifth grade participate in Blue/Green relay races. Students remain on their Blue or Green Team throughout their time at Harford Day. Siblings are always placed on the same team, and children of alums share their parent’s team color.
