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.
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?
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!
