A special thank you to all of our South Huntington family members who 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,” said Superintendent Dave Bennardo.  “A special thank you to our good friends in the second precinct who helped facilitate a smooth parade.”

It was a great “Spirit Week” with many of our faculty, students, and community members participating in all of our schools. Since the addition of our Homecoming Carnival and Shopping Cart Floats in 2016, we see more and more students of all ages participating, creating a strong bond between all schools within the South Huntington School District.

Walt Whitman High School would like to congratulate the sophomore class on an outstanding 1st place win in the float competition, with the senior class taking the win in both the Powder Puff game and overall win of spirit week. Thank you to all the clubs and advisors who made Powder Puff, Friday’s Festival, Bonfire, and Parade a huge success.
