Students Celebrate School Spirit at Main Street School Pep Rally
Main Street School students celebrated their school and community spirit during a schoolwide pep rally held on Sept. 28 at the gymnasium. Dressed in green and white attire, the students participated in a number of team-building activities. They also welcomed student-athletes and members of the high school marching band as special guests to their school.
“The pep rally provided opportunities to foster community both within and beyond the classroom at MSS,” Principal Joyce Chapnick said.
Homecoming games are scheduled from October 4 - 7. For the full homecoming schedule of events, click here.
