On Oct. 13, Massapequa celebrated Homecoming and the Chiefs didn’t disappoint their fans, as Massapequa defeated Hempstead 42-8 in varsity football. Prior to the game, there was a parade down Park Boulevard. At halftime of the football game, the top fundraisers from each elementary school for the first annual “Steps for YES” campaign were recognized. In response to county cuts for youth program, the campaign was launched to support YES Community Counseling Center. Students raised $5,625 for the center. In addition, Athletic Director John Piropato graciously took a pie to the face for the cheerleaders’ St. Jude’s Children’s Hospital fundraiser, which raised $426.
