Homecoming Tradition Returns to Montgomery High School
By Claire O’Farrell | September 29, 2022
Montgomery resident Christine Zoffinger, head coach of the Rutgers University Spirit Program and mom of MHS Football player Gavin Guidette, is a football enthusiast. She met with school administrators to propose new and improved homecoming activities to generate school spirit for all students, and to increase community engagement. With approval and funding obtained from the PTSA and MTEF (Montgomery Township Education Foundation), student and community-wide events are planned the first week of October leading up to and including homecoming weekend.
To kick off spirit week for MHS students, there will be a bonfire at the Princeton Elks Lodge continuing with a pep rally for the whole school on Friday before the big game. Of course, homecoming would not be complete without presenting the homecoming court and announcing the king and queen for each class at the football game against North Hunterdon. Next, student athletes, the marching band and various student clubs will lead a parade that will include floats designed by each class. The parade will take place Saturday, October 8 at MHS for the whole community to enjoy. There will be food tents and trucks in addition to youth field events at Cougar Stadium during the afternoon. Festivities will wrap up for MHS students with the annual homecoming dance Saturday night.
