Homecoming Spirit Week 2022

Homecoming Spirit Week 2022

 

One of the greatest weeks of the year, the entire MPCS family will celebrate Homecoming Spirit Week October 10-14! We will kick-off events on Monday, October 10 with theme dress-down days for grades PK-12. 

As part of spirit week, we will once again partner with MUST Ministries for the Fall Food Drive to collect food October 4-13 for those in need in the surrounding community. With their donations, middle school students can earn House points, and high school students can earn spirit week class points. Read more.

The Blue & Black Bash pre-game tailgate on Friday begins at 6:00 p.m. The night will culminate with an Alumni Dinner and crowning of the Homecoming Queen at halftime.

Friday Parade PARKING and CARPOOL

With all the excitement for Friday afternoon's Homecoming Parade, please plan to park at Riverstone Church. Please note parking procedures for Friday's festivities:

  • Shuttles from Riverstone Church will be available from 1:15-1:45 p.m. for parents who would like to attend the daytime PARADE (parade only). Shuttles will continue for parents (adults only) at the conclusion of the parade and will run until 2:45 p.m.
  • Shuttles will pick up at the top of the Shelton steps (which cross to Lot B) near the base of the main entrance drive. We will have two shuttles running during the these time windows.
  • The Pep Rally is for students in grades 6-12 only, no parents.
  • Please, NO early checkouts. We ask you return via shuttle to your car and continue to your normal carpool route.
  • If you are coming on campus for carpool, please do not do so until after 3:00 p.m. to avoid back-ups.

Thank you for your patience and cooperation during carpool as we celebrate with our school community!
