Wow, what a Homecoming Week! There was lots to do and see, including the pep rally. A pep rally is an event we use to get ready for the Homecoming game and build school spirit! We recognized the Fall sports teams and their coaches, as we do each year. This year, someone won a prize for being excellent; it was part of the new Compass Card Program here at West Bend. We also got to hear and see some of the band members play a musical selection, and watch the WBE Girls’ Dance team perform their routine, which was pretty neat. Oh, and let’s not forget, the Senior football players with their starting up chants and clapping!
We had so much fun during the beginning of the presentation, we did not have time for a few things such as: Tug-of-War, a pie eating contest, the Limbo, and the football players doing their dance.
Overall, we had a great pep rally to start off the GREAT WEEKEND!!

Pep rallies are an important part of Homecoming Week, and here is the scoop on West’s Pep Rally! This special event includes the West student body and staff as they come together before the West v. East Varsity Homecoming game. During the assembly, there are activities that include: tug of war chants, to see which grade is loudest, introductions of homecoming court as well as the football team’s dance created by the dance team. This event is usually a fan favorite. The staff make important announcements such as the new Compass reminders (our positive behavior rewards system).
During the tug of war, the competition came down to teachers v. Juniors. After an exciting match, the Juniors defeated the staff. Once again, the Seniors proved to have the most spirit and loudest chanting. They were rewarded with the West Spirit Stick by the Spartan mascot. The football dances were a big hit among everyone. These teams were the Freshmen, Junior Varsity, and Varsity football teams. After the Girls’ Dance Team showed them up, with an amazing performance, everyone left the field house in excitement for the parade, which was followed by the football game and dance.
