Homecoming, Hall of Fame weekend schedule

ALBANY, N.Y. (Oct. 11, 2012) – It’s Homecoming and Hall of Fame weekend in the City School District of Albany this Friday and Saturday. All are invited to participate in a variety of events to celebrate and support our students, our graduates, our schools and our community.

 

And this year you can look great doing it by customizing your own Falcon gear. Follow the Falcon Shop logo on our Athletics page and the Albany High page on the district website, or Albany High’s own home page. You also can visit the Falcons Rock! shop near the Tower 2 first-floor entrance at Albany High.

 

The weekend’s activities kick off Friday afternoon with the annual Albany High Homecoming pep rally in the gym beginning at 2 p.m. Several modified, JV and varsity teams compete Friday afternoon; visit the Athletics page for complete schedules.

 

Friday evening we will celebrate the eight members of the Hall of Fame Class of 2012 with a dinner and induction ceremony at Crossgates Banquet House beginning at 6 p.m. If you have not already purchased tickets, they are $45 at the door.

 

On Saturday, the Albany Public School Teachers' Association (APSTA) hosts its annual Scholarship Fundraiser Golf Outing at Normanside Country Club in Delmar. Visit the Mark Your Calendars section on the district home page to download a flyer with more information.

 

At 10 a.m. Saturday, the Albany High boys’ varsity soccer team hosts perennial state power Newburgh Free Academy at the Plumeri Sports Complex at Hoffman Park. At 11 a.m., the 2012 Hall of Fame inductees will be honored with the Wall of Fame ceremony at Albany High.

 

The Homecoming parade steps off at noon from Albany High’s Washington Avenue parking lot, with the Albany Marching Falcons leading the way.

 

The Homecoming football game against Guilderland kicks off at 1 p.m. on the Charles I. Leigh Sr. Football Field at Bleecker Stadium. The 2012 Homecoming king and queen will be crowned at halftime.

 

The halftime ceremony also will include a performance by the Albany High cheerleading team, and recognition of this year’s Hall of Fame inductees and members of Albany High’s Class of 1962, who are celebrating their 50th reunion this weekend.

 

The annual Homecoming dance is Saturday at 7 p.m. at Albany High.

 

We hope you’ll be able to join us for some of these fun activities. Go Falcons!
