Hip Hip Hooray for Homecoming

sneak peak of the week

   Maple Lake High School celebrated good times during homecoming week including many exciting activities such as: dress up days, the bonfire, and coronation.

The week started out with seniors Jacob Weese and Gwen Geyen becoming the 2022 homecoming king and queen. Geyen said, “My favorite part about being the queen was carrying on the family tradition because my mom and uncle were the king and queen when they were in high school.” Along with her thoughts on the week, Geyen said, “It was a good experience being the queen and I enjoyed participating in the events.”

During the week, some other events that happened were the scavenger hunt, the parade, dance, the football and volleyball games, and the pepfest. After coronation on Monday night, students were able to attend the bonfire.

At the bonfire, Shay McClory was the DJ and used his car for the music. “I chose to do the music because I think it is fun to DJ and to listen and to use my subwoofers,” McClory said. McClory said his favorite part of the bonfire was, “Hanging out with my friends and listening to music.”

The student council planned dress up days for each day of the homecoming week. Monday was Merica Monday, Tuesday was BBQ dad vs soccer mom, Wednesday was class color, Thursday was anything but a backpack, and lastly Friday was spirit day.

Student council introduced new ideas for this year’s dress up days. Senior Jarrett Faue went all out for his last homecoming week. “My favorite dress up day was anything but a backpack day because it was something new and I got to bring a wheelchair in,” Faue said. “I chose to bring a wheelchair in because it is fun to ride around in and I thought it would be a good idea.”

As the homecoming 2022 week finished up, king Jacob Weese said, “Overall It was a fun and memorable week.” Good times reigned down from the king and queen to their loyal subjects who honored the events with school spirit.
