Pep assemblies pump up the crowd for Homecoming

The pep assembly on Monday was a huge success. Its purpose, to encourage students to participate in Homecoming week, was displayed throughout the week with dress-up days and lunchtime activities. Monday was color war day at Lowry with the freshman sporting yellow, the sophomores in orange, the juniors rocking green, and the seniors looking dashing in purple.

The assembly started out with Superintendent Bumgartner playing the national anthem on his trumpet. The cheerleaders performed amazing stunts and even danced with the football players before the Grand Marshal, Mrs. James, was announced.

There was also a Homecoming Royalty game. Candidates Terrell Messerly, Robyn Wadleigh, Adam Gray, Ashlee Lee, Gerardo Covarrubias, and Rachael Studebaker climbed into huge decorated boxes and raced down the court to grab an item that matched their boxes before racing back. Covarrubias and Studebaker were named the winners.

The pep assembly on Friday, Oct. 9, was also very successful; it was blue and gold day at Lowry and the stands looked spirited. The dance team performed a spectacular dance to a medley of hip-hop songs.

The Lowry teams were announced and footballs were thrown into the crowd before the shopping cart parade started. The Art Club, advised by Mr. Anderson won the cart parade with an engine made of cardboard. The junior He-Man team then set out to defend their title in a game of volleyball against the teachers. The juniors won and the pep assembly was over.
