The theme for this year’s Homecoming parade floats, September 29,  was board games. Seniors were candy land, juniors were Monopoly, sophomores were Life and freshman were Scrabble. Each grade  worked non-stop to build their class floats. They announced the winners during halftime of the football game. The seniors took first place, juniors second, sophomores third and freshman fourth.

The parade consisted of the marching band, cheerleaders, dance team, homecoming court, floats, administrators, board of education members, and more.

Homecoming nominees are normally announced at the pep rally. This year’s nominees were Casey O’Connor, Arianna Benedetto and Diana Putrino for the girls, and for the boys, Michael Conti, Brendan Harrington and Carlo Tobia. The nominees are elected by the senior class. They announced the winners during halftime of the game on Saturday. This years homecoming queen is Arianna Benedetto. The homecoming king is Carlo Tobia.

Unfortunately this year the pep rally was cancelled due to the weather.  Usually during the pep rally, each sports team is announced along with its captains. The cheerleaders are set to perform the same routine they are going to perform at the homecoming game. 

The Wantagh varsity football team hosted the Plainedge Red Devils. The team record this year is 2-2. The Wantagh Warriors were down 28-0 up until halftime. During the third and fourth quarters the Warriors scored three touchdowns in a valiant comeback. They came so close to winning in the final seconds, but fell to the Red Devils 28-21.
