Homecoming Dance 2019

Homecoming Dance 2019


As is the tradition each year, the annual Homecoming Dance for all high school students (grades 9-12) will be held this year on Saturday, October 12, 2019. This event culminates a week of great activities and school spirit for high school students and gives them the opportunity to have fun in a safe environment. Spirit week information will be shared with you soon!


We are pleased to announce that this year's Homecoming Dance will once again be held in the Grand Lobby of the Murray Arts Center. Doors will open at 8:00 p.m. and the dance will conclude sharply at 11:00 p.m. Students should arrive no later than 9:00 p.m. as the homecoming court will be presented and spirit week results announced shortly thereafter. Once the doors are closed, students may not be allowed to leave until it concludes at 11:00 p.m. The only exception to this is if a student becomes ill and permission has been secured from their parent to an MPCS staff member for the student to leave early.


We do have one change this year and that is in regards to flowers. We ask that you not purchase corsages or boutonnieres as we cannot allow flowers in the grand lobby. The dropped petals get crushed and cause great damage to the tiles. If you want to purchase a small bouquet and keep it at home, that is wonderful. 


The cost of the dance is once again $25 per individual. Tickets may be purchased online here. Students are allowed to bring a non-MPCS date to the dance but they must be one year or less removed from high school. The appropriate form must be completed and the non-MPCS student must be approved by the administration before they may attend the dance. Please see Mrs. Palomaki for this particular form.


High school faculty and administration will supervise this event and will expect students to dress modestly and dance appropriately. Although this is a dressy occasion, it is not necessary to rent or purchase formal attire. Modesty is the keyword for the evening. Any clothing deemed inappropriate by an administrator will be addressed and appropriate measures taken, including the possibility of not being admitted into the dance. Parents should give their daughters support in selecting a dress that clearly abides by the school's mission and covenant. All non-MPCS students must also meet our MPCS expectations. 


If you have any questions regarding a particular dress style or what is or is not acceptable, please contact Mrs. Viola Lussier. Send her a full-length photo of the front and back of the dress in question to


We hope this letter has answered any questions you may have about this fun event. If you should need to contact the high school office with any questions, please do so at 770-874-6561. We look forward to a great evening!
