STUDENT ACTIVITY: iRally
On Friday April 27th, Fairmont Prep held its last rally of the 2011-2012 school year. The theme was iRally. Posters of Angry Birds, Fruit Ninja, and Temple Run decorated the gym along with a super cute Angry Bird balloon arch. Kristin Chung started the rally by singing the National Anthem. The baseball, softball, and tennis teams were honored at the rally. Each member of the baseball team received a gift bag filled with goodies-sunflower seeds, a protein bar and Gatorade for their trip to Avalon. Next, the Concert Choir, Show Choir, and Concert Band were honored for all of their accomplishments. A representative from each class tried to knock down paper mâché pigs with tennis balls like the game Angry Birds. Two representatives from the softball and baseball teams played fruit ninja with a baseball bat. Both contestants smashed fruits like watermelons, strawberries, and oranges into pieces! The 2012 Prom court was also announced at the rally. Lastly, two contestants raced through a Temple Run obstacle course trying to collect as many gold coins as possible. But after the obstacle course, they had to eat a banana! It came down to the last bite to find the winner! To end the rally, members of the 2011-2012 ASB gathered to sing the school’s Alma Mater.
