It’s a bird! It’s a plane! It’s a viking?!? 

Join the Landmark community and watch the Viking drop from the sky onto Alumni Field, signaling the successful completion (almost) of another school year! The Viking Drop will take place during Landmark High School's Field Day.

Purchase a square—or squares—by making a $100 gift to the Landmark Fund. If the Viking lands on your square you will win a New England Patriots Game Day Package!

You may be wondering...why is a guy dressed like a Viking sky diving onto Alumni Field?
It's a pretty good question. 

The Scoop

To celebrate the nearing end of the school year and to raise money for The Landmark Fund, we created this event that's just wild enough to catch your attention! Plus, students, families, teachers, and alumni enjoy the thrill of watching and cheering the Viking as he careens onto Alumni Field.

What does the afternoon look like?

Landmark High School Students have Field Day from 12 - 2 p.m. on Collins Field. At 2 p.m. they walk over to Alumni Field where alumni are invited to join them. There is a DJ playing music, students throwing frisbees, and a Shaved Ice truck to keep you cool!  Bring your sunglasses so you can join everyone in looking at the sky to spot the plane. Once the plane is spotted, everyone cheers as the skydiver floats down to the field, landing on a numbered square (take a look at the photo to see how squares are laid out). The Viking holds up the square to announce the winner! 

What does the winning square get?

Patriots Game Day Package

Why should I purchase a square?

Besides wanting to win the Patriot's Package, all proceeds of square purchases go to The Landmark Fund. The Landmark Fund bridges the gap between the cost of educating each Landmark student and funds received through tuition. Learn more about The Landmark Fund and what it does.
If you have not made a gift yet this year, purchasing a square is a great way to pass the gift of a Landmark education on to the next generation.
