With all of the hardships that South has endured this past year, the Spring Pep Assembly on Wednesday, May 21 offers students and staff a chance to come together for one “Last Hurrah” of the year.
The assembly will feature many different activities, including games with teachers, relay races and a ‘Senior surprise’. In order to accommodate the assembly, classes will be shortened and the assembly will start at 2 p.m.
Although it may be tempting to skip the assembly, it is important that everyone attends, including Seniors, to show school spirit and unity. For seniors, this will be the last assembly that they will attend at South and it is not something to miss.
Over the past four months, Student Association (SA) has worked tirelessly to come up with new and creative ideas that will make the assembly appealing to the whole school. They have put in hours of work to make it something that will bring South together and possibly start a new tradition.
As a school, the student body owes it to SA to attend and willingly participate in the assembly. The purpose of the spring pep assembly is to unite the student body and increase school spirit for the last few weeks before summer. SA aims to recognize all of the different parts of South that make it the great school that it is today. Along with various games, next year’s homecoming themes will be announced, teacher’s prom pictures will be shown, and a Blue Devil of the year will be named.
In contrast with previous assemblies, including Rick Santorum and Reggie Dabbs, this assembly will not be a motivational speech. Rather, just an opportunity for the school to come together and celebrate the end of the year.
To incorporate all aspects of South, the choir will be performing, as well as a dance crew made up of students. The senior class will also be doing their final run out at the end of the assembly, where they will then take a picture on the front lawn.
To show school unity, SA is encouraging all students to wear their unity day t-shirts from this year. Seniors should wear their Class of 2014 shirts.
The Pep assembly gives South a chance to gather for one last assembly and celebrate each other and all of the great things that South has to offer. This year has had many hardships and has put South to the test; this is an opportunity to show that the bond between students is unbreakable.
