The Best Time of the Year

Gallery: 2023 Homecoming Week

Spreading Positivity - Upper school English teacher Lee Norment writes positive notes for students at the “If I Only had a Heart- Positive Note Writing'' station. “If you put positivity out in the world, it will make things better for everyone,” Norment said. “The more positive energy you can create in a space, the better.”

School Sleepover - Students enjoy wearing their pajamas for “Waking Up in Oz” during homecoming week. “Pajama day is my favorite dress down day,” junior Rollins Miller said. “I like to wear my Mario pajamas to school.”

Mask up in Style - Students help themselves to complementary face masks sponsored by Key Club at the “Dorothy’s Beauty Bar Self-Care” station. There are a variety of options for students to choose from including fruits, vegetables and other plants.

Trivia Time - Upper school students participate in trivia questions regarding this week's Homecoming theme: The Wizard of Oz. This tradition not only sparks friendly competition, but also strengthens school spirit.

Senior Supremacy - Senior students dress up in blue clothes to represent their grade during “Color Wars” for Homecoming week. Seniors use this opportunity to show their school spirit and unity to make their last year memorable.

Color Wars - Students from every grade at Maclay School dress up in their grade’s assigned color. The grade with the most students dressed up wins. It is a fun tradition that brings the entire school together, as well as their own grades.

Dance off - Students cheer on cheerleaders and faculty as they compete in a dance battle. The end of the week pep rally gives students an opportunity to relax and get excited for the upcoming football game later that evening.

The Battle for Meridian Road - Maclay School’s homecoming week comes to an end at the football game against North Florida Christian (NFC). This is the school rivalry game typically known as “The Battle for Meridian Road.” Since this is the biggest game of the season for the Marauders, many spectators came to support.
