The games can be live streamed from the PTA’s Facebook page.
How will the games take place responsibly?
FCEPTA puts the safety of teachers and families first. Therefore the games will look a bit different this year:
What is the HTG Games?
The Hippo Tiger Giraffe (HTG) Games are an annual City of Falls Church school-spirit event that draws over 1500 students, families, teachers, and staff. The staff from Thomas Jefferson competes against the staff from Mount Daniel and Jessie Thackrey in Olympics-style competitions with the winner receiving the ultimate prize – the Golden Pencil.
HTG is one of the PTA’s biggest fundraisers and provides other attractions in addition to the Games. Fans can enter multiple raffles with prizes, wear spirit attire, and order food from a participating co-sponsored restaurant.
Check out a preview of some HTG Games being played by students.
Our sponsors help make the HTG Games a success! Our restaurant sponsors will be offering dining opportunities where a portion of the sales benefit our elementary schools.
