Homecoming 2009 festivities began on Friday afternoon, when high school students filled the school’s gymnasium for a spirited pep rally. The band played, cheerleaders kept the crowd going, and Homecoming coordinator Ellen Lynch introduced the Homecoming Court. It was an afternoon of fun and school spirit for all who attended, including staff, administration, and members of the board of education.
That night it was standing room only as students, parents, and members of the community came together to enjoy an evening of exciting football, good food, and time with friends. Students, parents, teachers and administrators proudly marched behind their floats as a parade celebrating school pride officially started the Homecoming festivities. The band played as fans filled the stands ready to cheer for their team. School spirit and community pride were at an all-time high when Big Red took the field, ready to play. And play they did. The cheers of the crowd, led by the Varsity Cheerleaders, broke through the night air.
Halftime entertainment was provided by the Glen Cove High School Kickline followed by the introduction and crowning of Homecoming King Adam Ramadan and Queen Alyssa Allen.
Homecoming 2009 ended, but the memories of that night will last a lifetime.
