Viewpoint’s all-school annual Homecoming football game has always been one of the highlights of the school year, and this year the enthusiasm was off the charts! From our youngest TK students to our seniors and their families, this beloved school tradition, held at Calabasas High School’s football field on Friday, September 30, was a chance to gather and celebrate their Patriot Pride.
The Homecoming fun began that morning with three pep rallies on campus, where the students in all four divisions could watch performances by the cheerleaders, play games with the football players, and shout their Patriot Pride. That off-the-charts energy could still be felt that night with the Patriots' 18-14 victory over Artesia.
The crowd was thrilled to be a part of the School’s favorite Homecoming traditions. During the pre-show, the Viewpoint Pep Band and the Lower School Chorus performed, and the seniors in the Upper School Concert Choir sang the “Star-Spangled Banner.” The half-time show included performances by the cheerleaders, dance company, and Viewpoint Pep Band along with a presentation of the Homecoming Court: Ninth - Charles Burrows and Sadie Kieffer, Tenth - Seth Forrester and Thomas, Eleventh - Avrick Altmann, Maya Smith Xiao, and Twelfth - Wyatt Thompson and Alana Malingagio.
The joy in the air was unmistakable and Head of School Mark McKee said, “It was a magical night on Friday at our annual Homecoming game and festival. Our community brought its Patriot spirit as fans enjoyed connecting and reconnecting over food and football. Our chorus, choir, dance team, and cheerleader performances did not disappoint and our football team delivered a win. It was a beautiful sight to see our entire community gathered under the lights to celebrate the values and connection that is Viewpoint.”
