Celebrating MacArthur Pride at Homecoming
Members of the Levittown School District community lined the streets as MacArthur High School celebrated their annual homecoming festivities on Sept. 16. Kicking off outside of Gardiners Avenue Elementary School, students, faculty, administrators, alumni and community members marched down Gardiners Avenue and North Jerusalem Road until they reached MacArthur High School. The bands of MacArthur High School and Jonas E. Salk Middle School serenaded onlookers as participants marched.
Once at MacArthur, the district celebrated the inaugural class of the Levittown School District Hall of Fame. Honorees included four MacArthur High School graduates, Sal Carrillo, class of 1973; John Theissen, class of 1989; Sue Petersen Lubow, class of 1971 and David Falk, class of 1968.
Following the Hall of Fame ceremony, the homecoming court made its way onto the field, and seniors Kevin Tarone and Molly Huggard were crowned king and queen, respectively. Halftime performances by the cheerleaders, Macettes and band had the crowd cheering, and the MacArthur Generals gave a valiant effort against visiting Garden City, ultimately falling 27-3.
