Homecoming in Review

Last Friday, with warm temps and brilliant sunshine spilling across our Allendale campuses, students and staff eagerly prepared for another Homecoming celebration. After gathering in the high school parking lot and assembling the parade line-up, the group was led by Batman and Robin (Mr. Remenap and Mr. Hadden) through nearby neighborhoods and down Learning Lane to visit the elementary, intermediate and middle school students. Local families also came out and lined the street to enjoy the fun.

High school student groups represented in the parade included the cheerleaders, football players, Speak Up! Stand Out! students, the marching band, general members of the student body, and of course, the Homecoming Court. The young spectators cheered excitedly, waving signs with the numbers of their favorite players, and yelling and chanting for their team.

The lovable Falcon mascot gave high-fives while Mr. Remenap encouraged everyone to cheer loudly enough “so they hear us in Sparta!” Whether his instruction worked or it was Homecoming magic is unknown, but Allendale High School went on to beat Sparta that night, 38-7.

We want to thank everyone who helped make the day a success! Check out the school spirit on display below in our gallery of Homecoming Parade photos!

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.

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.
