Homecoming 2023 Recap


Homecoming fever has come and gone. We are featuring highlights from the 2023 Homecoming festivities and some personal takes from our very own Shorians!

During spirit week, students expressed their Shorian pride starting on Friday, September 29th, for pajama day. The following week on class color day, seniors were in pink, juniors in green, sophomores in blue, and freshmen in purple. Wednesday was Barbie Day, which resulted in a lot of Shorians dressing up as their own interpretations of Barbie or Ken. 

Thursday, going hand-in-hand with all of the renovations going on, was construction day. Many students showed up in hard hats and vests. Wrapping up the week, of course, we have Lake Shore Day! The theme is pretty self-explanatory, students came in repping school pride with all sorts of red and black gear. 

Friday night was the homecoming football game. The varsity football team was going against the Eastpointe Shamrocks. Shorians came out on top with a score of 19-16! Seniors Michael Livi and Ella Mainhardt were crowned homecoming king and queen, and the senior class won the Shorian Shield. Juniors won the float decorating with the 2010s theme.

Mainhardt said, “I was honored and honestly shocked to have won homecoming queen. It’s definitely a moment I’ll never forget.”

At the very end of the 2023 homecoming season is the annual dance here at Lake Shore High School in the performance gym. Students varying grades are sharing the fun times they had over the homecoming season. 

Drake Silas, sophomore, said, “A highlight for me was spilling the tea at the football game with my friends, and just being with them overall.”

A lot of students enjoy going to the games not just for the sports, but to engage with the community and be with friends outside of school. 

Ava Edalski, senior, said, “I really liked the mystical meadow decor, and I had a nice time at the dance! After leaving, I went to McDonald’s and got a M&M McFlurry.” 

The decorations at this year’s homecoming dance were incredible! It really set the stage for beautiful photos and made the whole ambiance of the night more special. 

Conner Carney, junior, said, “I liked dancing with my friends and wearing my fit.”

For seniors, this is their last high school homecoming dance. The night was exciting, but definitely one of the many bittersweet final moments to come for our seniors. 

Frida Morha, senior, said, “I really had fun at homecoming this past weekend, but what made this one special was the fact that it was my last one. It’s hard to believe that I’m not going to have another homecoming after this, but I really do appreciate that I’ve had the chance to attend all of them!”

As always, the homecoming dance has done a wonderful job of bringing friends together for another addition to their high school memories.
