Center Moriches High School kicked off its homecoming weekend with a pep rally on Sept. 22. At the end of the school day, the student body gathered in the gymnasium to show their school spirit and cheer for the fall season athletics teams. Each of the teams paraded into the gymnasium to applause from their peers. The marching band and cheerleaders brought the energy with their performances and routines. Additionally, the homecoming king and queen were announced in front of the crowd.
Due to the weather forecast, the homecoming parade was moved from Saturday to Friday evening. Each class decorated a float following a board game-theme and the king and queen circled the high school track in an old-fashioned fire truck. Throughout the weekend, each varsity sports team played a homecoming game.
In addition to the high school festivities, Clayton Huey Elementary School held a pep rally on Sept. 22 to get younger students in the district excited about homecoming weekend. The Clayton Huey band performed as the Center Moriches PAL football players and cheerleaders were introduced to the school. The Center Moriches pride was evident across the district, no matter the age.
