Homecoming at MICDS is always more than a football game. It’s a community-wide opportunity to gather, celebrate, and have tons of fun. Everyone from our littlest learners in Junior Kindergarten to our outstanding leaders in the Class of 2023 shows off their Ram Pride, and we love welcoming all our families, both current and alumni, to campus.
Homecoming 2022 Highlight Reel
Enjoy the following summaries and photo galleries from all of the events that make up Homecoming weekend! In case you missed it, view the additional photos and recap of Spirit Week here. Let’s go, Rams!
The entire school gathered in the MAC for an amazing pep rally that featured rousing performances by our cheerleaders and an introduction of our varsity athletes. Awards (small stuffed rams) were given to those students who had expressed amazing school spirit throughout the week, and several other students were selected for a highly-competitive egg race.
Friday night was right for dining! A variety of food trucks offering everything from pizza and hotdogs to Cajun fare and dessert were arrayed behind the MAC for our students and their families. With tables set up inside and outside the MAC, and thanks to the tarps and blankets of several enterprising families, everyone was able to enjoy a delicious dinner while reconnecting with old friends and making new ones.
Parade and Bonfire
As night fell, guests started to hear the classic notes of bagpipes and drums of the Saint Louis Caledonian Pipe Band. This old Codasco tradition still rallies Rams fans to watch the cheerleaders and football players process to the bonfire field. Everyone gathered around while the senior football players lit the bonfire. The entire team then linked arms to sing the Codasco fight song: “Hear the crash, see the flash!” The Rams were ready to take on the Bombers!
Rams were back at campus bright and early, bedecked in yet more red and green, for the annual Fun Run between the MICDS and John Burroughs School campuses. This is another cherished tradition where the families and alumni from both schools enjoy a spirited race or a leisurely walk together. Ready…set…go…it’s then off to the races for the varsity and junior varsity games!
Carnival & Barbecue
The family carnival on the MICDS campus behind Olson Hall is an annual tradition for our little Rams, who enjoy face painting, inflatables, games, and balloon artists. They wear themselves out and then enjoy a barbecue lunch behind the MAC with their parents and their older schoolmates. The community enjoyed hamburgers, cheeseburgers, hotdogs, and veggie burgers along with chips and Ted Drewe’s frozen custard in a picnic atmosphere in between cheering for our varsity teams competing on the JBS campus and the junior varsity teams competing at MICDS.
