The last pep rally of the 2019 school year is anticipated to be the most engaging and exciting of the year. The rally will feature a variety of games and activities that will boost school spirit going into the end of the year and specifically will try to target all different groups of students. The rally is scheduled for May 31.

This rally, there will be a little surprise from our house presidents and vice presidents that we hope will get the audience engaged.”

“A lot of planning has gone into the rally, like how we are asking dance to perform an national anthem ensemble,” co-spirit and rally commissioner and junior Jeffrey Chen said. “We’ll play tug of war and have a year-long highlight video…it’ll be a fun one for the last one of the year!”

The pep rally planning mentioned by Chen is rigorous. In addition to class time discussions about the theme and games of the rally, ASB members spend time in rally rehearsals. For this rally, ASB is specifically focusing on audience engagement by targeting all student communities.

“First we start with a theme…Then, we think about how to incorporate the theme into games, skits or music,” ASB co-adviser Sarah Dean said. “We then think about how to incorporate certain types of people from the whole school into the pep rally: how can we include athletes? How can we include teachers?”

Similar to past pep rallies, the end of the year pep rally activities will all be planned around one central theme, which has not yet been revealed and will be a surprise for all students.

“This rally, there will be a little surprise from our house presidents and vice presidents that we hope will get the audience engaged,” co-spirit and rally commissioner and junior Maddy Noh said. “We always try to encourage spirit, but this rally specifically we are going to try to throw some t-shirts into the crowd and try to be more interactive by reaching a larger audience with our theme.”
