Oct. 7, 2019: Do not miss the remaining homecoming events this weekend brought to you by the Bronxville School Athletic Department and PTA Athletic Council. The Bronxville PTA Athletic Council’s 2019-2020 initiative, “Onward Broncos,” echoes the Bronxville fight song, Onward Broncos, On to Victory! All Broncos, fans, faculty, and alumni are invited to celebrate our athletes on the field, in the pool, around the track, and on the courts.
Homecoming festivities started last week when the Bronco teams displayed their banners on the front lawn. The traditional Bronco parade and bonfire took place on Monday night.

The non-stop homecoming action continues tomorrow with Food Truck Night starting at 5:00 pm in the Meadow Avenue parking lot. Food Truck Night will feature a fantastic line up including Walter’s Hot Dog Truck, Road Grub Mobile, Abeetza Pizza, Jimmy’s Soft Serve Ice Cream Truck and the Crazy Taco Mex Truck.
We are rocking the announcer’s box all weekend long with an in-house DJ to entertain between plays, Broncos swag giveaways, bake sale, and amazing specialty foods. On Friday and Saturday, the Bronco Barn & Grill will be selling food that has been generously donated by local Broncos supporters. These supporters include Lange’s Delicatessen, Mini’s Prime Meats & Specialties, Nutmeg Cafe, Park Place Bagels, Scalini Osteria, and Bronxville’s Doukas family-owned Eastchester Odyssey Diner.
Catch one of the games on Thursday and Friday night and all day Saturday. A special dedication ceremony for the legendary track coach, James Owen Mitchell, will take place on Saturday night at halftime of the varsity football game. The game starts at 6:00 pm.
The PTA Biannual Apparel Sale continues Thursday and Friday with opportunities to purchase your blue and grey gear on the front lawn from 8:00 am to 4:00 pm (rain location school Atrium at Meadow Avenue). A special selection of gear will be available for purchase near the Bronco Barn & Grill on Friday, 4:30 pm – 7:00 pm and Saturday, 12:30 – 8:30 pm.
A huge Broncos’ thank you to the countless volunteers that make this week a huge success as we celebrate our school, and we celebrate our Community.
