On Friday, August 23rd, all Prep students decked out in their class colors for the Back to School Rally and Field Day. This rally was a great way for new Prep students to “break the ice” and make new friends. Meanwhile, returning Prep students were given the chance to catch up with their friends and spend time bonding with others. Students cheered nonstop as the football team and the cross country teams were introduced. Later, the Prep ASB surprised everyone with a flash mob dance to the song, “Safe and Sound,” by Capital Cities. Throughout the rally, each class participated in a spirit competition, which included events such as a “loudness” contest, a fishing game, a duck race, and a bed sheet contest. This year’s seniors, the Class of 2014, came out the winners of the rally; as a prize for their outstanding school spirit, the Class of 2014 was given a “spirit stick” and the opportunity to have their class flag hung on the flagpole, below the American flag, for the rest of the school year.
The excitement did not end there. After the rally, students enjoyed hotdogs, watermelons, chips, macaroni salad, and lemonade in the annual “Back-to-School Barbeque.” The line was pretty long but all the students enjoyed the lunch and free time. Some students played basketball, swings, and made new friends no matter what class they were in. At the end of the day, most students and ASB members picked up the left over trash and cleaned the park. We hope 2013-2014 will be the best year to every husky!!!! Let's go Huskies.
