Maplewood Jr/Sr High School Home
Homecoming 2019 here at Maplewood High School was a success! All the students did an excellent job showing their school spirit during the week dressing up as hicks, VSCO girls, and tacky tourists. We were excited to see the amount of participation in USA day, color wars, and black and gold day as well. We hope it was a fun time and that you continue to have the school spirit everyone had this homecoming week! We have more spirit weeks coming in the future, so stay tuned for details.
The homecoming assembly took place on Thursday where we watched the powder-puff football game, and held activities for homecoming court. The “jeniors” won against the “freshmores” 12 to 6. Great job to Kirsten Motter for her two touchdowns, and also Eve Beuchat for her touchdown as well! Kirsten Motter said, “Playing in the game was definitely a lot of fun. At first, the underclassmen were winning, but we came back and I scored 12 points, so I’m glad we didn’t lose. It was a good time and for anyone who hesitated on signing up this year, do it next year, you won’t regret it!” Mr. Peterson said, “The game went well and Mr. Drake and I had a good time announcing. I also think the tug-of-war activity went well and it was great to see everyone getting the younger kids involved and having fun.”
The Friday night homecoming football game was against Cambridge Springs and we won 41 to 0. Our football players did an excellent job getting the win. Joey King stated, “The game was a success. It went very smooth and as planned. It was a good time. Coach Bork said, “The game went great. Just great.” The cheerleaders cheered their hearts out as always. Gabby Duke said, “The game was great and we were very proud of the team. JV cheered with Varsity for the first time and it went well. Our dance was a lot of fun and thankfully, nobody fell.” During half-time, our homecoming queen, Maggie Thomas, was crowned. “I was honored to be on homecoming court in general and I would have been happy for anyone on court to win. I was surprised when they announced my name as queen, but I was so excited and it made me feel special,” highlighted Maggie.
Jordan Roser emphasized, “Being on homecoming court with some of my best friends, was a fun way to spend my last homecoming. The week was a little stressful being on both homecoming court and student council, but both of the games and the dance were worth the stress. Everything ended up being a success and lots of memories were made!” Maggie also concluded that she, “had so much to do regarding the dance throughout the week being on student council. The week was stressful making sure everything was perfect, but we had a lot of fun in the meantime. I loved being on homecoming court and the assembly, along with the game and dance, was very fun.” Jenna Rubaker shared, “It was a lot of fun for my first year of homecoming. There were a lot more people and energy there than past dances I’ve been too. Overall, it was a good time!”
