Rivalry Day

October 14, 2023

We head to the Friends School campus for our seventh annual Rivalry Day — Saturday, October 14! 

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 are leading the Rivalry Day series, 4-2, with a big win last year. This year, we’re keeping the cup!

The greatest outcome of this annual event is seeing students from Pre-K-12, parents, employees, and alumni contributing to the wonderful spirit of this cross-community event with Friends School. From our Lower School fans cheering on the sidelines, to our energetic mascot — our entire community helps make the day a success.

See below for this year’s schedule.

Bruins Athletic Council has declared a “Whiteout” theme this year! Wear your white to support Park!


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.
