May Day

The Class of 2023 honored the seniors for May Day 2021.
A wonderful tradition at McGehee since the 1920s, May Day continues to the present day as a celebration of the senior class. It involves the seniors, their little sisters, the sophomores who perform a skit, and the third graders who dance around the maypole. The maypole signifies spring and new beginnings, especially for our seniors whose journeys at McGehee are coming to a close. Each May Day has its own unique invitation, theme and skit, and this year the Class of 2023 did a fantastic job of celebrating their big sisters with a game show theme. The highlight of this tradition is the revelation of the May Day queen and her maids. One of McGehee’s highest honors, the May Day court is elected by the entire upper school student body based on characteristics of kindness and school spirit. The May Day court represents the finest qualities of a “McGehee Girl.” 
Congratulations to the 2021 May Day Court!
