Pep Assembly kicks off Homecoming week
October 19, 2015
With this week being consumed by homecoming excitement, Friday’s pep assembly was ultimately the best way to introduce all upcoming festivities. Beginning with each student and staff member rising as one for the Star Spangled Banner, and ending with an emotional march for the 2015-2016 homecoming court, the enthusiasm of Roseville High School was no doubt alive. As their RHS teams were introduced, an assurance of pride was held within the entire student body. Outstanding performances by the band, the JV and varsity cheerleaders, the varsity dance team, the step team, and many other participants kept the entire gym on their feet. At various moments, healthy rivalry between each four classes and their teachers were encouraged as they went head-to-head in games and dance offs.
Saving the best for last, tears of joy and memorable hugs resulted from the announcements of the RHS senior homecoming court. Tiara Reeder, Ally McCarty, Johnnie Jones, Taylor Rice, Evan Gates, Matt Fowler, Madison Meatte, Emiley Pegley, Richard Campbell, John Mitchell, Artenas Anderson, Shawna Brandt, Rachael Weldon, Lucas Hildinger, Leah Ferrante, and Eryn VanderVlucht received their sashes and tiaras or crowns that officially proclaimed them court members.
“ It was exciting, I was filled with joy. Thank you to everyone who made this experience happen,” Shawna Brandt said. The overjoyed students then marched out of the gym, creating a picture perfect moment and an amazing closing to the assembly.
