With a spirited crowd behind them, the Generals continued their undefeated season with a 32-28 win over the Bellmore-JFK Cougars on Sept. 29. The varsity football game capped the Homecoming festivities at MacArthur High School in the Levittown Public Schools.
The celebration kicked off on the warm and sunny day with a parade from Gardiners Avenue School to MacArthur. It featured the high school and Jonas E. Salk Middle School marching bands, cheerleaders, representatives of student organizations, district administrators and the Homecoming court.
Senior football players, cheerleaders and members of the kickline, marching band and color guard were introduced during pregame ceremonies, with each player escorted across the field by a parent. The 2018 Homecoming king and queen were Joseph Gagnon and Jennifer Gattus, who were presented their robes and crowns from last year's king and queen, Kevin Tahone and Molly Huggard.
Todd Winch, the assistant superintendent for instruction, spoke about each of this year's inductees into the Levittown Hall of Fame from MacArthur and Levittown Memorial high schools.
The halftime show included performances from the varsity cheerleaders and MacEttes kickline team, as well as the heavy-metal themed performance by the marching band and color guard.
