HCPS End of Summer Fest!

HCPS is once again partnering with the Aberdeen IronBirds to host the End of Summer Fest at Leidos Field at Ripken Stadium during the Thursday, August 25, 7:05 p.m. home game versus the Wilmington Blue Rocks!

This family friendly event will help end the summer in a fun and exciting way as we celebrate the beginning of a new school year with families in our community. There will be many helpful resources available to families during the evening, including access to several community partners, HCPS staff, and our very own 2022 Teacher of the Year Ashley Gereli!

Students will be able to take part in many exciting activities, including a pre-game parade. They may even see Ripcord, the Aberdeen IronBirds mascot! Check out this short video for a message from HCPS Manager of Family and Community Partnerships Mary Beth Stapleton, and Aberdeen IronBirds General Manager Jack Graham.

Be sure to purchase your discounted tickets today by visiting us online at or by clicking here.

We hope to see you there and we look forward to seeing all of our students in their classrooms soon!
