Vernon Student Council Elections Go Tech
Neatly dressed with speeches in hand, sixty 5th and 6th grade students from James H. Vernon School each took a turn delivering a persuasive speech to their classmates with the goal of earning their votes for Student Council — electronic votes that is.
Thank you, OB-EN Board of Education

Cheer on the Baymen at Homecoming, Oct. 20
School spirit has been building all week in the Oyster Bay-East Norwich School District as the high school prepares for Homecoming, Oct. 20. The Baymen football team will play against the Island Trees Bulldogs at 2 p.m. on Memorial Football Field by Roosevelt Elementary School, but the celebration starts at 1 p.m. with the Homecoming Parade. The procession will start in front of Oyster Bay High School and will march down East Main Street and Audrey Avenue to Memorial Field.
Festivities center around the theme, “Seasons.” Each 9th - 12th grade class will design and build a float one one of the four seasons and middle level students will build a float incorporating all of the seasons. The parade will lead with the Board of Education and administration, the high school marching band, Roosevelt students and parents with their banner, Vernon parents and students with their banner, middle level students with their float and banner, each high school class with their banners and floats, the senior king and queen, the cheerleaders and fire engines from local fire companies.
During halftime, entertainment will be provided by the cheerleaders and the high school senior class, which won the lip sync contest at Friday’s pep rally. Refreshments and school apparel will also be sold.
