Hornet Highlights

October 2019

Let Homecoming Begin!

This year Kearsley will be celebrating the characters and stories from Disney's Pixar movies during Homecoming week. There are all kinds of ways to show school spirit during this exciting week. Every day has a theme at each of the school buildings, and kids get more excited as the big day approaches.


Before the Hornets meet the Linden Eagles on the field Friday night, there are a few other events that have to take place. Assemblies stir up the excitement and three PowderPuff football games have to be played. A Homecoming Court has to be selected, a King and Queen chosen and floats built. Grand Marshal Marsha Davis will lead the parade down Genesee Road Friday afternoon and families will gather in the KHS cafeteria for a tailgate party immediately following the parade.


Memories will be stirred when our Kearsley Hall of Fame 1957 boys basketball team members are introduced on the football field prior to the game. Come on out and join the buzz.

PowderPuff Games

The tradition continues on Monday night as the juniors and freshmen compete at 5:30 p.m.and the seniors meet the sophomores immediately following the conclusion of the first contest. The Powderpuff King will be crowned between games. Tickets for the Monday night games are $5 with proceeds going to the senior class. Since this is a fundraiser, no passes or staff ID's will be accepted.


On Wednesday afternoon, the winners from Monday night will battle for the PowderPuff Championship at 1:00 p.m. at the football field. On Wednesday, everyone is welcome to come to the PowderPuff Championship game free of charge. Come join the excitement.

Who's going to win the Spirit Cup?

Kearsley Homecoming Spirit Cup

Annual homecoming parade and tailgate party bring community together

The Homecoming parade starts at 5:00 p.m. Friday at the former Paro Educational Center on Genesee Road, just north of Carpenter Road. It moves south to Daly Boulevard and ends at the high school. Remember, motorists should make other plans for travel because Genesee Road will be blocked from Carpenter Road to Daly Boulevard until the parade clears.


Immediately following the parade the Tailgate Party takes place in the KHS cafeteria. Hornet fans will have a choice of Italian, Chinese or Mexican food while visiting with friends and neighbors. The cost is $5 all you can eat. All proceeds go to the Kearsley Christmas Charity.


The party then moves to the football stadium for the 7:00 p.m. kickoff. Go Hornets!

Davis named Grand Marshal 2019

Our 2019 Homecoming Grand Marshal is Marsha Davis. Marsha began her career teaching English at Armstrong before moving to Dowdall to teach kindergarten, 1st and 2nd grade. She moved on to become a district curriculum coordinator. Marsha then served as a principal at Dowdall elementary and AMS before moving to the role of District Curriculum Director. She retired from Kearsley in 2011. Marsha dedicated her career to Kearsley students and is a deserving honoree as the 2019 Grand Marshal!
