Optional pep assembly held in main gym
Student Council hosted its first optional pep assembly during seminar Tuesday, Jan. 31
The Sweetheart pep assembly took place in the main gym Tuesday, Jan. 31. The assembly was optional for students during seminar. Senior student body president Brianna Coup ran the assembly which included the Sweetheart candidates, a Silver Stars performance and a candidate game. Coup gave insight into the planning of the assembly.
“It is hard to host a pep assembly and it definitely takes time,” said Coup. “The hardest part is writing the script, it takes a long time. You just want it to turn out good.”
Senior Jack Melvin explains his emotions to finding out he was on the court.
“I was honestly really shocked I did not expect it at all,” said Melvin. “I was a little confused but happy that I was nominated.”
During the assembly, the Silver Stars dance team performed a dance with a teacher of their choice. Coup tells her favorite of the assembly
“My favorite part of the assembly was the dance with the teachers,” said Coup. “I also love being able to get up in front of the school and talk.”
The court members participated in a game inspired by the show “The Bachelor.” Melvin informs us on the game and how he felt he did.
“The game was fun, you had to guess on questions about the other person and run for a rose,” said Melvin. “It was fun to run to get the roses, I wish I slid to get a rose.”
Because the assembly was optional, Coup shares how it made panning difficult.
“I was very upset that the pep assembly was optional,” said Coup. “It affected the planning of the assembly because we had no idea what our turnout would be. We switched locations three times before they let us have it in the gym.”
For seniors, being a part of the assembly can be an unforgettable experience. Melvin claims this will be something he will never forget.
“It was cool to actually be a part of the assembly, it seemed like the crowd was having a fun time,” said Melvin. “I am so glad I got to be a part of it, it was really a cool experience.”
