After the SnowBall pep rally was cancelled for the second year in a row, disappointment has been running high among students.
“I was really disappointed when I heard it was canceled,” says Kelly Bryson ‘15. “I looked forward to having one this year because last year it was canceled and never rescheduled.” Bryson adds.
Due to sub-zero temperatures, school was cancelled on Friday, the 20th. Because of the closing, the pep rally was cancelled.
The senior class has been very vocal about the cancellation.
“Its my last high school pep rally and I was really looking forward to it,” says senior Evan Butler. “I wasn’t able to have one last “white out” with my friends,” Butler adds.
The “white out” is a senior tradition of wearing all white on pep rally day. Some seniors even dye their hair white and wear white facepaint.
Students who were scheduled to participate in pep rally activities were also let down.
“Myself and the Cheer Team put all our hard work into learning a routine and in the end we couldn’t do it,” said Angelica Baker ‘15. “Plus the seniors didn’t get the chance to beat the juniors in tug of war!” Baker exclaims.
After school resumed, Student Council made no mention of working with administration to reschedule the pep rally. “This is the same thing that happened last year,” Butler explains, “no one tried to reschedule it.” Butler says he thinks they should petition to reschedule the rally.
The 2014 SnowBall pep rally was cancelled due to a brown out that temporarily shut off the lights and sound system in the gymnasium.
