Today at Patterson, we had fun! Everybody gathered together in the auditorium and watched the sports teams celebrate the Homecoming Football games. The first team on the stage was the boys’ soccer team. The second group to take the stage was the cross country team. Third, the volleyball team and lastly, the boys football team sang, chanted, and danced.

Then, some of the boys carried a huge fake coffin to “bury” Frederick Douglass’ mascot (a duck) in. Three boys were dancing. One was singing. The photographers took a lot of pictures. Some Patterson Press reporters took pictures and toke some notes to post online. They ended with one boy break dancing.

The finale was having our own Baltimore City mega-talented performer Ricky Williams on stage. A good time was had by all, a really fun and exciting celebration. If you didn’t make it, attend next year!
