Holbrook Middle-High School recently closed out its homecoming week with its annual pep rally. The pep rally is an occasion that takes place near the start of the school year which celebrates school spirit and the senior class. This event had all the students pile out outside to the turf due to COVID-19 related issues. 

Marissa Todd, a senior at HMHS, said how the pep rally is a good chance to relax and have fun together. She quotes, “I think it’s nice to see everyone in a much less formal setting, especially teachers. Events like this are great de-stressor after a long week of school, especially those applying to colleges.” Todd is excited to finally participate in the Hoco pep rally. She also stated, “I am also excited that it’s finally our turn as the Class of 2022 to be the center of attention with our tear-away banner, our run, and Homecoming court. It’s about time!”

Dalice Rodriguez-Viera, senior, says, “The purpose of the pep rally is basically for the seniors to make their big debut in front of the school and marks the beginning of all the senior activities that await them.” She also states how this event is a great opportunity to take a break from the stresses of school and to focus on the excitement of the senior year. Dalice quotes, “I am most excited about the seniors running through our breakaway banner in front of everyone, and just having a really big entrance.” 

After a whole year without a proper pep rally, Holbrook Middle-High School is definitely ecstatic to bring back this annual tradition.
