The chilly wind didn’t stop Jenison fans from coming out in droves to celebrate Homecoming this year! With the theme of Board Games as their guide, each class created a special float and waved to the adoring crowd on the parade route.  Many High School clubs, teams and organizations were represented including the soccer team, cheerleaders, dance team, swim and water polo teams, volleyball team and even the equestrian team! Junior High Vice Principal and Float Judge, Heather Breen says “The kids did a great job [on the floats].  They demonstrate outstanding school spirit and creativity.”  Fellow judge and Junior High teacher, Kevin Fales agrees, adding that the students should be proud of their hard work.

Although the football team was coming off a stellar victory against the previously undefeated East Kentwood, they weren’t able to pull of a win on Homecoming against Forest Hills Central, falling 22 – 14. However, it was hard to be discouraged when Kate Veldink and Jacob Helm were announced as Homecoming King and Queen.  Fellow senior MIII5610 copy[and close friend of the Queen] says that her senior Homecoming is “really special” and she wants to be sure to cherish every moment.

Kalyn Brockman, a Jenison freshman is taking in Homecoming for the first time not being on the sidelines. She says she loves seeing the whole community come together and it’s a great chance to show our Jenison pride!

Thank you to all students and staff for your hard work leading up to Homecoming and throughout the weekend.  Your passion and commitment make the entire event memorable and special for our school! Thank you to the community members who come out to the parade and football game to support our students and families; we couldn’t do it without you!
