Spirit Week Pep Rally & Celebration

The Pep Rally on the Friday before vacation was a wonderful ending to a fun week! The whole school got together to celebrate our SumDog winners, The WordMasters students, and our Cybermission winners presented. The rally was organized by students from each 7/8 community with the help of Mrs. Trainer and Ms. Cavallo. SACS Senior Band played The Star Spangled Banner along with several highly polished selections that they have been practicing in preparation for their NYC trip in June. The rally also had some fun contests that each team participated in, including a hula-hoop competition, a cheer off,  and a "teacher wrap".  It was an excellent and fun way to celebrate our school and our amazing students. Well done, Raiders!

Congratulations to Team Imagination, The Spring Estimators Cup winners!
