Up With Tiger Pride
Fun and games pump up students
From the class chants to the fun games to the pep talks from the principal, the pep assemblies were always full of school spirit.
“Pep assemblies help our student body get pumped for not only upcoming school events, but it also helps encourage students to get out of their comfort zone, have a good time and enjoy and be proud of being a Tahlequah Tiger,” Austin Jones, 11, said.
One of the best ways to get the students out of their comfort zone, was to have a little fun. Games and races among the students seemed to do the trick, a little friendly competition never seemed to hurt.
“Participating in pep assembly games are always fun. I truly wish everyone has a chance to participate in one at least once,” Kyle Lucas, 12, said.
The Dance and Cheer Teams both showed their national routines to their student bodies for practice for their competitions, and the cheers from the crowd reassured them for their success.
“My heart was full of pride every time my girls stepped out on the floor to perform,” Mrs. Jennifer Lynn said.
After cheering for the Dance and Cheer Teams, each class got ready to cheer on themselves for the class chants, and the juniors came out on top, winning the spirit stick.
“My favorite part about pep assemblies is the fact I get to be in one area with all classmates rooting, shouting and gathering for one specific reason, supporting each other as a whole,” Lyric Peterson, 11, said.
Pep assemblies weren’t just for getting everyone pumped for school events. It was also a great way to bring everyone together under one roof.
