Clear skies with the temperature in the mid-70s provided the perfect atmosphere for W.T. Clarke High School’s homecoming celebration on Oct. 2.
Homecoming began with a parade up Stewart Avenue and then Washington Avenue as the Rams marching band led the march to their high school. A steady crowd of parents, family members and district residents lining the sidewalk in front of the high school cheered when they saw the parade approaching. In addition to the marching band, the parade also featured cheerleaders, the flag corps, school organizations and movie-themed class floats.
Halftime festivities featured a performance from the marching band and the cheerleaders, along with recognition of the homecoming royal court. The Rams’ varsity football team capped off homecoming with a 30-20 victory over the East Rockaway Rocks.
