2012 Homecoming Parade in Pictures

One of the things so many people love about Allendale Public Schools is the way we work to connect students across the district around one common focus. This past March we came together to get healthy at our annual Fitness Frenzy. In the spring our community supported the middle school science department’s work on Project BudburstLast Friday our focus was Homecoming, and despite the cool temperatures, our students were ready to celebrate!

Members of the 2012 Homecoming Court prepare for the parade.

Sophomore reps brave the wind together.

Beginning at 1:30 in the afternoon, the  Homecoming Court, Allendale Marching Band, cheer squad, sports teams, and all members of each class from the high school assembled and prepared to make the trek from the senior high to the K-8 campus. Learning Lane ballooned with the grinning faces of elementary and middle school students as the parade wrapped its way around buildings and through the heart of our campus.

Under the shelter of changing leaves, our elementary students clapped and thumped out cheers as the Homecoming Court neared. Members of the football team high-fived young fans while proudly sporting their Wounded Warrior jerseys in anticipation for the evening’s fundraising game.

This Homecoming was filled with connections: upperclassmen connecting with underclassmen, football players connecting with veterans, community members connecting with our school, and graduates coming home. We are proud of our young people, our teachers, and each of the schools that make up our district.

What were some of your Homecoming memories? We’d love to hear about them! Please leave a comment below to share.

    A parade through the Pierce Street campus is such a great idea! Thanks so much for including/encouraging our young students in the Allendale Falcon Spirit!

  2. My 3-year old son really enjoyed this. We live on Pine Valley Drive and I was home from work with him because he was sick. We heard the parade coming, stepped outside to see, and some of the football players came over and gave him a high-five. Thanks, guys, for giving a 3-year old a bit of a lift in his spirits for the day.
