Homecoming at Gaston Day School is more than a single night--it is a week long celebration. Each day of the week has a theme like Pajama Day. Starting with community homeroom in the PKW auditorium on Monday, all the weeks events are designed to build school spirit and have fun. The sense of excitement grows throughout the week as we move toward the culminating event: the crowning of the Homecoming Queen on Friday night at halftime of the boys varsity basketball game.

This week is the conference tournament for both our boys and girls basketball teams, and the games are here at Gaston Day. Our girls team has had a remarkable season after not having a team for several years. We finished in the middle of our conference and had a number of great victories. Although we were knocked out of the tournament yesterday in the first round, I am so proud of our girls. They have established a strong foundation for the future success of the girls basketball program, and they had such a fun, successful season. Girls basketball is back at Gaston Day. Olivia King and Zaria Clark were named to the MAC All-Conference team. Congratulations to Coach Antonio Leach on such a great season.
Our varsity boys basketball team is currently ranked number one in the state in the 2A independent
Life at Gaston Day School is a balance of academic and extracurricular activities. Homecoming and post-season basketball are highlights in school life. They make Gaston Day School a fun place to be. They give spirit and character to our school. Go Spartans!!
