Homecoming pep rally to have Disney theme
September 24, 2019
Archbishop Hannan High School will have its annual homecoming pep rally coming up, it will feature performances, games and teams.
Once every year Hannan has a pep rally, bonfire, football game, dance and parade for its homecoming week. This year’s theme is Disney, calling it The Happiest Homecoming on Earth.
“I do think they’ll like the Disney theme because I think it gives a lot of opportunity and a lot of like diverse options for you to dress up for the pep rally and for the floats and stuff and everybody loves Disney so we thought it was a pretty solid theme”, Student Body President, Justin Mouledous said.
At the pep rallies, activities such as different games for each grade competing for the winner of homecoming week will be featured. Unlike other pep rallies, this one will have many performances from guests and Hannan’s own teams.
“It’s going have probably four to five games, in which classes are competing for obviously the winner of the pep rally and then the ultimate winner of homecoming week, it’s going to have more in regards to performances, and they’ll all have their individual numbers as well so it is a little less game heavy and more performance heavy.”, A student council involved teacher, Rebecca Sigler said.
The activities are passed down from the years, therefore most of the pep rally activities will be from tradition, but will be Disney focused.
“A lot of homecoming is based off tradition, but of course the games are going to be Disney centered,” Mouledous said.
The Disney theme was decided at the student council retreat during the summer. Many of the members came up with the idea and decided that it was the best one after brainstorming on different ideas.
“So each year we have a retreat in the summer and we spend like two days basically out in the wilderness in Loranger, Louisiana and we do like some bonding stuff but we also work, we come up with back to school dance themes, homecoming theme, so at a retreat center in the middle of the woods, that’s how we came up with the Disney theme,” Mouledous said.
The events of the pep rally and the Disney theme will be incorporated through dances, decoration, and music. Students can dress up for the theme and participate in the pep rally by singing along and partaking in the games. The homecoming pep rally is the largest one Hannan has, everyone looks forward to it and it always has a great crowd.
“I mean this is our biggest one this is the one where the gym fills up and between the parade, the pep rally everything I mean participation is always really really strong, even though it’s at night because it’s such a huge event, we usually get a decent turn out, I hope this is no different this year,” Sigler said.
