Fall Sport Pep Rally

At Garrison Forest Middle School, we have 3 sport pep rallies each year. One in the fall, winter, and spring. Recently, we just had our fall sports pep rally for the year 2012-2013. At Garrison, you have the option to play a sport every season. In the fall there is soccer, field hockey, and cross country. During our pep rallies Mr. Trinh, the Dean of Students, announces A field hockey, B field hockey, and so on. In between each team, he says the names of all of the players on that team. Every pep rally is held in the Middle School Auditorium. Between each set of seats, we have our spirit leaders at the end forming a pyramid. Mr. Trinh will say each name of the member of that specific team and they will come running down while the crowd cheers them on.

Our Middle School does this for many reasons. One of the many is to get the teams pumped up. Not only because they made a team, but for a great season. We also do this because it’s always nice to cheer people on and if they would like, to come down to our home fields and support our classmates. At GFS, it’s as if we are family. We are an all-girls school so it doesn’t matter if we embarrass ourselves. We may not always show it, but we are always there for each other on and off the field. When we have this pep rally, that’s when it really shows because you hear the loud screams of the friends who want you to have a great season.

Below, you will see many pictures and even a video! Our pep rallies create memories that will last a lifetime but who says we can’t have pictures? These pictures show a variety of what happens during a pep rally. We have each member from a team line up outside the entrance doors when Mr. Trinh announces the team that you are on. Then you run down, high five people, and you get to stand in front of the whole Middle School smiling and even cheering on the rest of your teammates along with the coaches.
