It was a beautiful sunny day during the Freeport High School’s varsity football homecoming game, as the Red Devil’s dominated the field and defeated the Baldwin Bruins 54-13. In attendance were district staff, administration, and members of the board of education, along with representatives from the Village of Freeport and Nassau County. 

The festivities kicked off with the district’s homecoming parade, where the high school’s NJROTC, marching band, flag team, kickline team and homecoming court marched through the parking lot and onto the track.

This year’s homecoming court included senior class king and queen Anthony Peralta and Gianna Mullings; junior class prince and princess Jaiden Ramos and Kiana Tiburcio; sophomore class duke and duchess Dillon DeBourg and Angelica Olivo; and freshman class count and countess Rommel Pineyro and Anastasia Drakeopoulos. 

The varsity cheerleading team kept the crowd in high spirits throughout the game, and during halftime the high school’s flag team, marching band and kickline team provided an energetic performance.

Bayview Avenue School’s third grade students were eager to be paired up with members of the Freeport Fire Department for the school’s 14th annual Hooked on Firefighters Kickoff. Five classes were assigned to firefighters, who educated students on fire safety through a simulated smokehouse and fire truck demonstrations.

The Freeport community came together on Oct. 2 for its final peace pole dedication at the district’s administration building. Staff, members of the Board of Education, administration, Caroline G. Atkinson Intermediate School students and Nassau County Legislator Debra Mulé attended the ceremony. 

Along with the district’s mission to participate in the International Peace Pole Project movement, this celebration also went hand-in-hand with honoring International Day of Non-Violence and the 150 year anniversary of the life of Mahatma Gandhi. 

Atkinson students gathered around the pole and performed songs promoting peace and harmony, and reiterated quotes about peace from influential leaders, including Ron Hall, John Lennon, Robin Williams, Mahatma Gandhi and Jimi Hendrix. Now, nine peace poles stand tall across the district, with one at each building. 

Superintendent of Schools Dr. Kishore Kuncham said he is honored to be part of the special dedication ceremony.

“There are over 200,000 peace poles across the globe, encompassing over 180 countries,” Dr. Kuncham said. “The peace pole is a symbol of energy that we bring together here and through the peace pole we radiate, permeate that energy across the world. Thank you for being part of this celebration today.”
