Senior Molly Horth opened the middle school pep rally by singing the national anthem and alma mater.

The Varsity Cheerleaders performed a dance routine and cheer for the study body, and pulled students by grade level to compete in a jumping contest.

They also lead students in a shouting competition, which the sixth graders won.

The most spirited teacher award was given to sixth grade teacher Denise Elkin. Eighth grader David Hennigan was named the middle school’s Spirit King, and eighth grader Emily Kehoe was named the Spirit Queen.

Singing the national anthem and alma mater for the high school pep rally was Liz Sedore.

Student athletes were introduced, and senior athletes Gabby Guarasce and Josh Loccoco were dubbed the spirit week winners.

To end the pep rally, the wall winner was named. Students ninth through twelve grade each decorated a section of the gymnasium, which was then voted on. Winning by one vote was the Class of 2017 with their “Despicable Me” theme.

After school, a pie in the face fundraiser happened outside of the cafeteria. Pie in the face has become a tradition at Sandy Creek High School, and is a football fundraiser.

Student athletes pick their own match ups, and whatever student raised the least amount of money is the recipient of a whipped cream pie to the face. Monies raised help cover the cost of meatballs and sauce for the football team’s spaghetti dinner. A portion was also donated to the Susan Bitz Scholarship Fund.
