First Pep Rally Overcome by Heat
The afternoon of September 2nd, 2016 was the day of the first pep rally of the year. Some of the students were having second thoughts on this one, for the simple fact that it was going to be outside, in the blazing heat. The idea for the pep rally to be outside was suggested to Principal Dexter Day by student request so that all CHS students could attend and enjoy the pep rally experience together as a whole.
Students were released seventh period and a wave of extreme excitement roared through the hallway as students fled from the school. Students stormed into the stadium, eager to scavenge for a seat next to their peers. When CHS Dog Pound presidents Dejjah Spates and Carson Hritz tried to enthusiastically pump up the crowd, they responded with rocks and stones… so stiff. The heat had already gotten to them.
Shortly after, the CHS Dazzlers opened the pep rally with a performance that left the students and staff speechless. Unfortunately, one of the dazzlers dropped from heat, but this didn’t stop the rest from keeping up the spirit. The crowd, once filled with spirit, lost it once again as the sun reappeared from behind the clouds.
After the cheerleaders did their cheer, students attempt to leave out of the stands due to the agonizing heat. When everyone was told to go back to their seats complaints began and many students grew angry. The pep rally was dismissed shortly after, a little before dismissal bell.
Students were the most filled with pep at the beginning and end, even if they were outdoors more than they would have liked to be. The band, Dazzlers, Cheerleaders, and many more were, with out a doubt, astounding. It was simply just too hot!
