Thank you! Two words that mean so much and are extended to so many. Maricopa, thank you for an amazing Homecoming Week for our MHS Rams. The love and support felt means so much to all of our Rams.

Thank you to every single teacher, parent, student, alumni and community member who helped with the planning and coordinating of all the events throughout the week. All of the hard work paid off. The smiles on faces as they joined in the celebration were an indication that all the time and effort you put into the week, was well worth it.

Thank you to all of our volunteers who helped make the events possible including the City of Maricopa, AK Chin, CERT volunteers, Maricopa Police, City of Maricopa Fire Dept, Maricopa Police Explorers and to all of the numerous community members who volunteered throughout the week. These events could not have happened if not for your help!

Thank you to all of the businesses who participated in Paint the Town Red and Ramily Night. Your support is contagious and means so much to our Rams. Ram Pride Fever was everywhere!

Thank you to everyone who participated in and who came out to support Ram Fest. Special thank you goes out to Jamie Bowen-West for coordinating it. This was our second year, which was bigger than last year. Ram Pride fever was felt throughout the evening. Thank you to Edward Farrell and the many others who coordinated the alumni game. The friendly rivalry continues every year.

Thank you to all those who helped make that bonfire seen from those entering Maricopa off of 347.That was our biggest bonfire yet and the memories will last a lifetime! Thank you to not only those who helped donate pallets but to those who delivered and built the stack. Special thank you to our Fire Dept, who made sure everything was safe and who started that fire. Thank you to our Cert members and Police Explorers who kept us all at a safe distance.

Thank you to Maricopa for coming out to fill the stands to help cheer on our team to a victory. Thank you to the many boosters who work so hard to ensure the behind-the-scenes of the game is coordinated. Thank you to all our booster supporters who make so many things possible!.

Thank you to every single future Ram, alumni member, local business, city leader, local candidate, student, parent, teacher and community member who came out to support all of our Rams throughout the week. The support does amazing things for our Rams and means so much to all of us.

There is no doubt that our small but growing town is filled with hometown spirit. The love felt increases school spirit and leads to amazing things. From this proud Mom, I thank you for that love. To all of our future Rams – we see you! We look forward to welcoming you to our Ramily soon. Let’s continue the Ram Pride all year Maricopa!
