Community members proudly dressed in their best green and gold as they anxiously lined the streets from Lynbrook High School to Marion Street Elementary School, waiting for the district’s homecoming festivities to start on Sept. 22.

The annual parade, led by the Lynbrook High School marching band, central administrators, building principals and board of education members, showcased true Lynbrook spirit as students and faculty marched through the town, waving to residents and onlookers. Lynbrook High School’s kickline and varsity cheerleaders raised their pom-poms in the air as members of the homecoming court rode in the back of cars. Prior to the exciting day, the high school hosted their pep rally on Sept. 21 where senior Angelica Almonte was crowned homecoming queen and senior Griffin Kirby was crowned homecoming king. The freshmen, sophomore, junior and senior class also participated in the parade, cheering and marching with their creative banners. 

The parade concluded at Marion Street Elementary School where the Lynbrook High School Owls prepared to play the Valley Stream South Falcons during the high school’s annual PTA Scholarship Football Game. Community members were encouraged to donate money at the entrance to help fund scholarships for the Class of 2019 as Lynbrook apparel, snacks and refreshments were sold to support the senior class and the scholarship initiative. 

Before kickoff, cheerleaders, kickline members and football players from Lynbrook High School’s Class of 2019 were recognized on the field. They each walked arm and arm with their loved ones as their peers and community members cheered. This followed with a big entrance onto the football field from the Owls. The high school marching band, under the direction of Brian White, performed the National Anthem to a crowd full of supporters. 

The varsity cheerleaders showed their spirit on the field while cheering and chanting for the Owls throughout the game. During the halftime show, the cheerleaders and kickline proudly presented their spirited routines and the marching band and color guard performed. The day ended with a sweet victory for the Owls, as they won the game 35-0.
