Laker Traditions

Our traditions are an important part of the MPS experience, and these special days create wonderful memories for every Laker. Years after graduation, our alumni still fondly remember the fun of Laker Day, Touch of Class Day, and their first experiences as a Laker during Freshman Welcome Week. Many of our alumni are just as excited once their own children are able to enjoy these traditions as well!

Laker Day

MPS Laker Day is the heart of Laker tradition and spirit. The day each year when freshmen sport yellow, sophomores don red, juniors proudly display orange and seniors lead the school in blue. With the entire student body set for competition, this community of colors creates an atmosphere of excitement you will not find in another school gym. Laker Day is the day to celebrate your Laker Pride and have a ton of fun!
