Our Homecoming Celebration was a terrific blend of sports, entertainment, food, games and even some fundraising! At Wheatley, Homecoming kicked off with our Pep Rally on Friday afternoon. Organized by our Student Senate, the Pep Rally featured our incredible Jazz Band (under the direction of Steve Fitzko), the introduction of our Fall teams by Student Senate members, and a Teacher v. Student “Pie in the Face” challenge that raised over $8,200 for Puerto Rican relief! You can see some photos and videos of the wonderful Pep Rally at #Homecoming2017 Kicks off with a Pep Rally and a Fundraiser!
After the Pep Rally, our Tri-M Music Honor Society presented “Rocktoberfest” for the community, a combination of music, seasonal activities and wonderful food! You can see some photos from this new event at Tri-M’s “Rocktoberfest” Celebrates Music and the Season!
On a lovely Saturday morning and afternoon, Wheatley volleyball and soccer teams competed. As the athletes were competing, community members enjoyed a wonderful International Food Court, DJ music and some bouncy houses!
