Fall Field Day Returns for the First Time in Decades


This year marks the advent of Fall Field Day. Returning CHS students are already familiar with Field Day, which used to only occur in the spring, but the popularity of the event has led to an additional Field Day to be added.

The initiative was spearheaded by CHS social studies teacher and Forum Council advisor, Ryan Silvester. Since Spring Field Day takes place the same day as seniors leave, some have felt that it cuts short the time forums can truly connect all together. The idea of a Fall Field Day came around through Forum Council last year.

“I was talking with Forum Council a little bit about this at the end of last year and we realized, you know, we love field day in the spring,” Silvester said. “It’s a really fun time to just be together, and the bummer is that then the seniors leave. The forum kind of fractures after that as some leave and you’re waiting to get new freshmen the next year. So we were like, well, wouldn’t it be fun to do something like that in the fall?”

Like Spring Field Day, Fall Field Day is composed of events in which forums compete against each other. Many of these events were created by Silvester as a counselor for neighboring Huron High School’s band camp every summer at the Interlochen Center for the Arts in Interlochen, Mich.
