The annual homecoming celebration at Hicksville High School once again brought the school community together for a day filled with fun activities and school spirit.
Friday’s pep rally served as the informal kickoff to a fun homecoming Saturday. The PTA-sponsored Homecoming Fair brought children, parents, siblings, alumni, teachers and other members of the Hicksville High School family and greater Hicksville community together for a great cause.
Student, parent and school community organizations featured tables offering various activities, games, spirit wear, gift basket raffles, food and refreshments, all to raise funds for student activities. Inflatable slides and bouncy houses offered additional entertainment for youngsters. The high school robotics club even gave away goldfish for youngsters who could successfully catch balls thrown by their robot.
Hicksville High School’s four classes displayed banners during the homecoming procession onto the field, just prior to the game kickoff. This year’s theme was cities, and the freshman class took the best-banner honors with its banner highlighting the city of Honolulu.
Halftime performances by the marching band and color guard, the varsity cheerleaders and Starlets kickline team also had the fans up and cheering from the stands. Dhanush Sivasankaran and Christina Bonilla were crowned homecoming king and queen, respectively.
Unfortunately, the varsity Comets team fell to Port Washington in the homecoming football game.
New York State Senator Kevin Thomas presented Hicksville High School with a proclamation for organizing such a wonderful community event.
