PAINT, PAINT, PAINT Working on the senior CEC house, Laila Mosley, senior, puts on the first coat of paint for the blue sky. “The house is really coming together and it’s so fun to make,” Laila said. “I feel like it reflects our colorful personalities.”

COVID-19 has caused many changes to Homecoming, but CEC continues to work diligently on their playhouses for today’s Homecoming parade. Seniors chose a Candyland themed playhouse, juniors chose a playhouse based off the movie “Up,” and sophomores chose a hippie theme. Freshmen do not have a playhouse.Due to COVID-19 and MHS moving into stage three, CEC sponsors had to organize sign ups and shifts for building the playhouses, along with contact tracing. 

“We’re building tonight (Sept. 9). We have a meeting tomorrow on how we’re going to decorate, and everyone seems to be really excited, ” Mrs. Katie Harris, math teacher and CEC senior sponsor, said. 

All grades are very excited to show off their hard work at today’s parade. They spend one day after school building the house, and then three or four days decorating it. 

“It is always so cool to see the before and after of the houses. I think that we have a really great theme this year and I am so excited to see it come to life.” Emma Gossman, senior, said.
