We are excited for Homecoming 2019. We have a great day planned with Homecoming Booths and some fantastic games for that evening. Given all of the traffic and crowds we expect for the day, we wanted to let everyone know about a few important details for that afternoon.
- End of the day pickup for the high school will be adjusted. Pick-up will still be located at the back of the building, but we will need to change the traffic pattern to avoid cars going over the bridge. To reduce the volume of traffic, we encourage all students to either stay for the Homecoming festivities that afternoon or ride their regular bus route home. If you need to pick-up a student please follow the new traffic pattern in the rear of the high school building (which will be marked).
- The Carnival events will be open until 6:00pm, and are all family friendly. We hope to see students from all schools in attendance. At 7:00pm when our football game begins, any student from Jefferson and the Middle School will not be allowed entry into the game without a supervising adult. It is our expectation that students will remain supervised by that person throughout the game. Students are not allowed to wander the woods or play in the back fields during the athletic contests.
- Link to the games:
Parking: Please park in designated spots on campus. Due to possible rain this week, our fields that we use for additional parking may not be available. If an area is taped off, please do not park in that taped area. Doing so could cause issues for our fields and you could also get stuck.
Homecoming Football Game: Each year we donate the proceeds from the football game to charities. This year we are donating to two different groups, Sabres First and the Weekend Servings Program.
Schalmont First: Is an initiative started by the Business Department in conjunction with Mr. Couture’s Marketing class to help with the Threads and Treads program in the High School, as well as providing needed funds and materials to members of the Schalmont community when need arises. Each year, the Marketing students take on a hands-on marketing project to help raise funds for Schalmont First. All proceeds from these projects go directly to help students with varying situations of need and to the Thread and Treads program that helps to provide clothing and other necessities, along with a bicycle repair program that gives its refurbished bikes to those in the community who could use them. The program truly provides a leg up for those in need within the community, earning their motto of “Sabres Helping Neighbors.”
Weekend Servings Program: The Weekend Backpack program addresses food insecurity for more than 1,200 elementary school children in Schenectady County by providing a reliable source of nutritious food to children each Friday during the school year.
Your generous donation will allow us to provide weekend food servings to all children in need in the Schalmont Community.
