Homecoming Pep Assembly

For those of you who don't work in a high school, you might enjoy this taste of a Homecoming Pep Assembly.

Cheering. Dancing. Singing. Tug-of-War. Centipede Race. The kids are alright.


  1. And when schools and districts assume that learning only can take place in classrooms and thus erode things like assembly in order to "protect instructional time", they rob students of living and learning and building a shared culture.

    Events like this can never, and should never be measured in terms of outcomes but should be valued and emphasized as acts of community and sharing that every human should participate in.

  2. Dang, I watched the whole video but never saw The Who! ;-)

    As a middle school teacher, I miss this level of camaraderie and team spirit.

  3. shareski - Yeah, I hear that.

  4. RichTCS - Sorry to mislead you on The Who. Yes, it is fun to work in a high school.
