Last week, Asheville Middle School had their first pep rally! Everyone was super excited, and looking forward to the amazing routines by our cheerleaders. There were fun events, tons of screaming, and a student/teacher dance off for everyone to watch! The band was also playing and did a wonderful job getting the crowd excited. One part that I'm sure everyone loved was when all of the grades had a mini - competition to see who would earn the grand prize of the Spirit Stick, in which eighth grade showed to have the most spirit. It was close though! We also had an energy boosting relay race between the grades, where eighth grade also came out in the lead. Not only that, but the cheerleaders and Mrs. Meinert helped us introduce all of the sports teams, including football, Cross Country, Boys Soccer, and volleyball.
This was certainly a success of a pep rally and no one will be forgetting it anytime soon. It was so much fun to be able to do fun activities with each other and interact with the other grades. We are looking forward to the next one already!
