CLARK, NJ - The Arthur L Johnson student council held the annual homecoming celebration and fall sports rally on Wednesday, Nov. 26. The lower gym at Johnson was decorated and transformed for guests’ arrival at 5:30.

The evening started with the announcement of the fall sports team led by their captains. The Crusader cheerleaders helped get the athletes and the rest of the crowd excited for the Thanksgiving game the next morning.

 “I think it’s awesome that the teams come and support the homecoming nominees. Not only does it get everyone pumped for the Thanksgiving game, it brings together all of the athletes in support of their fellow teammates and friends,” said Crusader athlete Gianna Randazza.

The homecoming nominees were next in, dressed up in their nicest shirts and dresses.  As their chosen music played, each couple made an entrance – some extravagant, some simply walking arm-in-arm.

Student council members read a short biography about each of the contenders. ALJ Principal Rick Delmonaco said a few words about the nominees while teachers deliberated to select the homecoming king and queen. 

After a short time, the winners were announced. Arthur L. Johnson’s homecoming queen was Danielle Marzano and the homecoming king was Lucas Gallo. Both Marzano and Gallo were repeat winners, having held the titles in 2013 as well.

The student council called the event a success and hope to continue the festivities for many years to come. 

Due to inclement weather, the annual bonfire was cancelled.
