Pep-Rallies are events that unite the school, from the kids who are just faking school spirit, to the kids that actually bleed orange.  This year we have had a dramatic change in our pep-rallies.

It is not that all of the pep-rallies in the past years were bad, it just seems that this year they are genuinely more enjoyable and involving.

We first decided to ask Jared Winston, pep rally MC, about all of the work that goes on behind the pep-rallies:

“It really is a team thing. Everyone [Jaime, Dr. Gober, Mrs. Morris, Mrs. Parker] is in on it. Some people don’t give enough credit where it’s due, there’s a lot of people in this program that really help us out.

They give all of their time to help us schedule and make sure that have everything we need to make the pep-rally fun.”

After talking with Jared, we decided to get some input from other Rockwall students, to see what they think about the new and improved pep-rallies.

Here are some of their thoughts:

“This year everyone is a lot more involved” – Sophomore, Olivia Hanna

“I liked it a lot because it was really loud and more entertaining than it has ever been”- Sophomore, Gage

“It was better organized and they had better ways for everyone to interact.” – Sophomore, Lauren Gallander

There was actually a lot of music, it made it really fun. The band is really great, but it’s good that they have a mix this year.”

— Carson Sanders

“Last year’s MC’s were good, but this year they really seem to know what they’re doing.”- Junior, Shalon Alford

“I thought they were a lot more fun–there was more involvement. Last year a lot of people didn’t even go to the pep-rallies, but this year it seems very different, people actually want to go.” – Junior, Shelby Mosely

“There was actually a lot of music, it made it really fun. The band is really great, but it’s good that they have a mix this year.”- Sophomore, Carson Sanders

The excellent result of our first pep-rally made a great first impression for the upcoming ones. Many students favor the loud music and involvement with their MCs, teachers, and own classmates.

Now, instead of sitting in the cafeteria or standing miserably in the gym, students are more likely to get engaged and have fun while showing their school spirit at our pep-rallies.
