Valley Stream Central High School celebrated its spirit week and homecoming football game during the week of October 16. Anticipating poor weather for game day, the school held a daytime pep rally in advance of the Eagles’ contest against Hicksville on Saturday, October 21.
The rally included a singing of the National Anthem by student Maya Andrews along with performances by Central’s streamers, cheerleaders, step team, marching band, and drum circle. The school’s fall athletes all had the opportunity to step onstage as well. Kenny Suquilema and Elize Quezada were named Homecoming King and Queen, respectively.
Students took part in the school’s annual class banner contest despite cancellation of the homecoming parade due to rain. Each class designed banners based off this year’s theme of Disney. The banners are currently hung up in the school’s gym for all to see and vote on.
