PEP ASSEMBLIES FINALLY MAKE A RETURN TO IHS
By ELLA MOSCO
On March 11th, 2022 IHS held a pep assembly to recognize the start of spring sports and the end of the winter season. Many activities were held throughout the assembly including, but not limited to a teachers vs student basketball game, a rap battle, and there was a T-shirt cannon by the Technology Department. There was also supposed to be someone shaving their head but due to a “lack of clippers” the persons involved were unable to fulfill their plans.
Many teachers and students enjoyed a break from learning and had a good time sitting with friends while watching the assembly. Pep assemblies are always popular and widely enjoyed throughout the school
Students were dismissed to the new gym by grade level during 10th period. The schedule was shortened so they could have enough time for the assembly.
“I really enjoyed the pep assembly because it was nice to see everyone in the gym. My favorite part was the rap battle, this was my first rap battle I saw in person. It was amazing to see the whole school in the gym. I was so excited to see everyone because everything seemed like it was back to normal.” (Ella)
Many people in IHS were happy to see the whole school back together again. Students have definitely noticed a change. They have noticed that it feels more normal and it was great to have the entire school back together.
“My pep assembly was great, I really enjoyed it and was thoroughly entertained throughout it. My favorite part was the rap battle! It felt AMAZING to have the whole school back together in one room. It finally felt normal.” Junior Maycie Lorelli comments. Judging the atmosphere during the assembly and afterward, many students felt the same way as she did.
For the most part, everyone’s favorite part of the assembly was the rap battle. It was between Dr. Layden and “THE BIZ”. Dr. Layden ended up winning that battle after 3 rounds. Students and teachers had a lot of fun watching the battle.
The teachers vs students basketball game was also very popular. Students had a good time watching the game and cheering everyone on. The teachers ended up winning that game too.
With the return of pep assemblies to IHS, hopefully this is a sign that things are finally returning back to….normal.
