Students show their Eagle Pride during annual Homecoming Spirit Week

From Monday, Sept. 18 to Friday, Sept. 22, Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School hosted their homecoming spirit week, along with the homecoming pep rally and many activities during both A and B lunch. Students had the opportunity to participate in the spirit week and dress up according to each day’s theme.

This year’s homecoming theme was “The Wizard of Oz.” MSD’s Student Government Association planned the spirit week, which went with the original theme.

“So since we’re in leadership, we had to do everything, like we had to make all the signs for the pep rally and we had to organize it all,” SGA member and junior Courtney Solinski said. “We also did lunchtime activities so we had to buy all the stuff [for it].”

MSD kicked off their spirit week with “Midwest Monday,” where students had to dress up as cowboys and cowgirls. Students were spotted wearing hats, boots, bandanas and even cow costumes.

“Twister Tuesday” consisted of students dressing up in their “wackiest clothing.” They wore neon tie-dye, rainbow and other clothing they normally wouldn’t wear.

“I went to Party City,” senior Emma Kramer said. “I bought neon green tights and neon green hand-nets.”

On “Which Witch is Which Wednesday,” students wore clothing similar to their friends, appearing as twins or triplets. There were also group outfits.

“My favorite day has been Which Witch is Which Wednesday,” freshman Isabella Hogan said. “I got these shirts for Victoria and I to wear for twin day.”

Thursday was called “Down the Burgundy Boulevard.” Students wore college attire, including shirts, sweatshirts, jackets and hats.

“My favorite day [is] probably college day,” junior Nina Levy said. “I’m a huge FSU fan, and if I can rep anytime, I’m going to rep.”

Friday, the last day of spirit week, was “There’s No Place Like Homecoming.” Students had a “color war” and wore specific colors according to their grade. Freshmen wore green to symbolize Emerald City, sophomores wore blue to symbolize Dorothy’s (a character in “The Wizard of Oz”) blue dress, juniors wore red to symbolize Dorothy’s red slippers and seniors wore black to symbolize witch hats.

There were also multiple lunchtime and after-school activities that took place throughout the week. Students participated in musical chairs, basketball, limbo, a petting zoo, etc.

During eighth period on Friday, all students attended the homecoming pep rally, which included performances from colorguard, the cheer team, the step team and more. Students were captivated by the show as they screamed, laughed and sang along to different songs.

Many students in all grades enjoyed participating in the different activities and games during spirit week. They also appreciated showing their Eagle Pride during the pep rally and football game and were thoroughly entertained at the homecoming dance.
