[Brief] MSD announces homecoming spirit week dress-up days

Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School’s homecoming and spirit week take place Monday, Sept. 18 through Friday, Sept. 22. For spirit week, students are encouraged to dress according to each day’s theme.

On Midwest Monday, students should dress in country attire. On Twister Tuesday, dress wacky. On Which Witch is Which Wednesday, people should twin with a friend. On “Follow the Burgandy Brick Road” Thursday, students will wear their favorite college attire. On “There is no place like homecoming” Friday, wear class colors for class color wars; freshmen wear green, sophomores wear blue, juniors wear red and seniors wear black.

The student government teacher, Danielle Driscoll, and her students planned several activities for Spirit Week such as a petting zoo on Thursday, pep rally on Friday and activities in the courtyard during A and B lunches. Lunchtime activities include musical chairs, pop a shot basketball, miniature golf and a hula hooping contest.

The planning process was long, according to Driscoll. As soon as the school year commenced, the leadership class began searching for spirit week dress up themes, Homecoming activities and pep rally performance showcases. The date for the Homecoming dance was scheduled during the previous school year.

“I think homecoming spirit week is more a feeling of excitement around campus of everyone kind of coming together as one for each day of dress up to participate and just kind of have fun. It’s some of those core memories that you get to make in high school that, in my opinion, you remember forever,” Driscoll said.

Conversation of outfits, dates, and carpooling are bouncing off the bustling hallways at MSD. Students look forward to next week as the pep rally, football game and dance are approaching.

“I am most excited to hang out with my friends and have a good time at the party,” sophomore Mallory Biederman said. “I also went to homecoming last year and I had a great time. So of course I wanted to go again this school year.”

Before school started, MSD principal Michelle Kefford suggested the Wizard of Oz as being the overall theme for the new 2023-2024 school year. The student government was in charge of planning the process, including the dress up days and spirit week activities.
