Football, Fun and Festivities


The school district community joined together for an afternoon filled with school spirit and football fun on Oct. 8. Members of the board of education, administrators, staff, students, parents, and elected officials, filled the bleachers for homecoming 2016 as they watched the Red Devils score a huge win against the Plainview-Old Bethpage Hawks. The district’s traditional family fair, complete with games and food served by members of various school clubs and elementary PTA, provided entertainment adjacent to the field.

In a special ceremony prior to the game, members of the Freeport High School Class of 1966 presented a check for $535 to high school principal Linda Carter and members of the board of education. The funds will be used to purchase a new showcase inside the school. During halftime, the marching band and cheerleaders performed their synchronized routines to precision, and the Red Devils then secured their victory.

As a festive precursor to the varsity football team’s entrance, a parade featuring the Freeport High School marching band, cheerleaders, members of the Navy Junior ROTC and the homecoming court — prince Sebastian Pierre and princess Dillon Finch, and senior class king and queen Domingo Batista and Kaitlyn Adames — made its way onto the track surrounding the field.

Freeport’s homecoming festivities and victorious football team contributed to the celebration of community pride.
