Lunch will be a cookout at the football stadium. If you would like to bring a blanket to sit on with your friends that is wonderful! Announcements will let you know when you are eating, but lunch will be an hour which will give each group plenty of time to eat. While your group is not eating, you can choose to play 9 square near the endzone, walk the track with your friends, or sit and relax (maybe even get a nap). Our rain plan is a picnic style lunch inside.

Pep Rally

If you would like to participate in a Pep Rally game, you need to sign up via the Google Form by Tuesday, September 26th. The HoCo committee will randomly choose from students who sign up and notify students if they are chosen to represent their class during the pep rally. (Google Form Link: Not yet available).
