MJHS Spirit Week Culminates with Pep Rally

Memorial Junior High School’s gymnasium was a sea of blue and white on Oct. 9, when students and staff expressed their school pride during the school’s annual pep rally. The celebration and dance that followed were the final activities of the week.

Spirit Week kicked off on Oct. 5 and involved a different theme each day. Students were invited to wear blue on Monday, pajamas on Tuesday, dress like a twin on Wednesday and don sports attire on Thursday. Many who did not wear blue and white on Friday instead dressed in pink to support breast cancer awareness.

The pep rally featured music from the band, a dance show by the kickline and a number of athletic highlights. Each junior varsity team and junior high school team was introduced and players received cheers from the stands as they were individually called to the center of the gymnasium floor.

Teams showed off their skills and sportsmanship with short drills that represented their sport.
