This past Saturday, all of our South Huntington family members came together to help make Homecoming weekend such a tremendous success. The amount of school pride shown by faculty, students and community members was wonderful and it was inspiring to see students of all grades and ages, as well as parents and community members from across the generations, taking part in the "small town" ceremonies and festivities.  Of course one of the highlights of the weekend was our Homecoming Parade. There was something special about seeing the members of our South Huntington family marching down the center of Jericho Turnpike as a sea of Wildcat “maroon and white” filled the streets. A special thank you to our good friends in the second precinct who helped facilitate a smooth parade.

Congratulations to our Whitman seniors who took 1st place in the Float Competition and the Winning Shopping Cart Float went to Oakwood Primary Center.

Congratulations all on a fantastic homecoming weekend!
