In July Shafer shared her vision of building a marching band of students and alumni from both Kennedy and Eastside that would ignite spirit and pride in Patersonians as the famed Marching 100 had in previous years.

“We want students and alumni from all of the district’s high school programs to participate at the Thanksgiving game,” Shafer said previously. “This is an effort to bring people throughout the Paterson community together through the talents of our students and our alumni."

The Thanksgiving Classic football game between Kennedy High School and Eastside High School will be held on Thursday, November 27 at Bauerle field.
