RIVALRY DAY! Park vs. Friends

We head to the Friends School Campus for our Fifth annual Rivalry Day — Saturday, October 16! 

We are excited to compete against Friends again for Rivalry Day 2021

The terms of Rivalry Day are simple: we play a lineup of games with our longstanding rivals, Friends School, keep track of the outcomes, and the school with the better record claims bragging rights until the next Rivalry Day. The Bruins claimed victories at the first three Rivalry Days! At our fourth, in 2019, The Quakers took the cup with a 4–3 win, (but a big shout-out to our Middle School Bruins for sweeping the Quakes in all of their games)! This year, we are taking the cup back!

The greatest outcome of this annual event is seeing students from K-12, parents, employees, and alumni contributing to the wonderful spirit of this cross-community event with Friends School. From our Lower School athletes giving us a halftime show on the turf field, to our energetic mascot — our entire community help make the day a success.

See below for this year’s schedule.

Beat Friends!


Park School, Park School, Hear thy sons and daughters greet thee, 
We a loyal band and true come singing, To our Alma Mater our praise bringing 
Park School, Park School, High we’ll raise our flag and long cheer, 
As we’re marching on to vict’ry ‘neath the Brown and White.

Park School, Park School All our lessons hard we learn there, 
Algebra and Latin lie in wait and History and English keeps us late in 
Park School, Park School, But our motto still is “Strive on,” 
As we’re marching on to vict’ry ‘neath the Brown and White.

(Verse 3 only sung by Alumni)

Park School, Park School, When our course is done we leave thee,
Still thy mem’ry lingers in each heart With thoughts of happy days before we part from
Park School, Park School, When we’re old and gray we’ll still cheer,
As we’re marching on to vict’ry ‘neath the Brown and White.

Isaac A. Oppenheim, one of Park’s founders, composed “Park School” in 1913, with lyrics by Eugene Randolph Smith.
