Homecoming Is A Hit At Division Avenue High School
It was a grand affair as the Division Avenue High School community participated in the annual homecoming parade and game against Valley Stream North on Sept. 17.
Students, teachers, administrators and staff began at Northside Elementary School and proceeded to march to the high school. Grand Marshall Debbie Rifkin led the charge along with Assistant Superintendent for Curriculum and Instruction Dr. Beth Zirogiannis and Assistant Superintendent for Business Michael Fabiano. Residents cheered from the sidelines as the high school's classes, clubs and teams passed with banners in hand. The homecoming court were escorted in vehicles and the march was concluded by the Wisdom Lane Middle School Marching Band as they each made their way onto the field.
Before the kick-off, Sofia Ferreiro led the community in the pledge of allegiance and Sophia Massoni sang the national anthem. The halftime show dazzled guests with performances by cheerleaders, the kickline team, color guard and the high school marching band, who performed music from "Aladdin." During a special presentation, the homecoming court was introduced, and Joseph Pesco and Olivia Agunzo were crowned king and queen.
Although the dragons came up short during the game, they certainly showed their muster on the field.
