The All-School Pep Rally was a great way to kick off football, volleyball, cheer, and cross country season. Middle School and Varsity cheerleaders welcomed all the students with cheers and stunts. While students piled in, the band also played songs to welcome everyone. Middle School cheer then performed a great dance to show off their skills. Emcee, Natasha Verbsky, introduced all of the Middle School and JV teams as they all stood up in recognition. Varsity coaches were then introduced and gave a brief statement on the season. Representatives from each Varsity team came on the court to play a fun, entertaining game. One person from each team had to demonstrate their football skills; one demonstrated their volleyball skills; and the other, their running skills. This was a quick, but intense game. The cross country team took the victorious win. Varsity cheer wrapped up the Pep Rally with the routine that they created at cheer camp that placed them 2nd in the camp competition. Varsity football head coach, Chance Gray, led the school in singing the fight song. Upper School Principal, Laura Smith, closed the Pep Rally in prayer.
