In a unique hybrid celebration the York Prep SGO prepared a special assembly that was a mix of both your traditional pep rally and a school talent show. The “Prep” Rally was held on Friday, April 21st during 6th and 7th periods. Students of all ages were gathered in the Pantherdome which was decorated with posters, banners and balloons in the school colors of blue and gold.
The SGO did a quick but thoughtful acknowledgement of the winter athletic season before switching gears to focus in on encouraging the athletes of the spring athletic season. The spring coaches announced each of their teams, standings and significant games, including the tennis team announced by Coach Turcio and Coach Bolanos, the golf team announced by Coach Bianco, track & field announced by Coach Bernal, boys’ volleyball by Coach Clarke and baseball by Coach Serri and Coach Shure.
The much anticipated talent portion of the Rally included dance performances from 11th and 12th graders, in which members of the audience were even asked to join in. There was also a special sneak peek of a number from the upcoming school musical, “The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee”. All in all, it was an excellent way to usher in the weekend and show some real school spirit!
