The annual Homecoming Dance for all high school students (grades 9-12) will be held this year on Saturday, October 15. 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.
We are pleased to announce that this year's Homecoming Dance will be outdoors at the Catherine Steele Sewell Stadium.
- The dance floor will open at 8:00 p.m.
- 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.
- Students will not be allowed to leave until the dance concludes at 11:00 p.m. The only exception 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.
The cost of the dance is $45 per individual. Students are allowed to bring a non-MPCS date to the dance, but he/she 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 he/she may attend the dance. Please click here to download the form. Complete and return the form to Mrs. Palomaki by Tuesday, October 11.
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 children support in selecting attire that clearly abides by the school's mission and covenant. All non-MPCS students must also meet our MPCS expectations.
We hope this answers any questions you may have about this fun event. Please call 770-874-6561, if you should need to contact the high school office with any questions. We look forward to a great evening!
