Homecoming festivities in West Hempstead

Posted

School spirit was on full display at West Hempstead High School’s Homecoming parade during the first weekend of fall on Sept. 22. From members of the Board of Ed to high school students from each grade, the school community marched down Hempstead Avenue. In addition, the high school’s marching band provided music while the cheerleaders helped to promote school spirit.

Shortly after a ribbon-cutting ceremony to commemorate the high school’s newly installed artificial turf field, the West Hempstead Rams faced off against Friends Academy. The Rams defended their new field with a 32-6 victory, which led to a perfect ending for West Hemsptead’s Homecoming celebration.
