Pep Rally

We had a great Pep Rally on Thursday, August 16. This was an opportunity to celebrate all of our fall sports and introduce our Mini-Thon team. There was an overwhelming feeling of school pride throughout the building, culminating with the Pep Rally. It was a very competitive event where all four classes and the staff competed in a relay race and a tug of war.
