Pep assemblies at WCHS might be changing. Students have responded to recent pep assemblies as being rushed, chaotic and disappointing. Principal Mrs. Candice Haffner and spirit captain Joseph Schaffer are searching for ways to get more students on their feet and off their se

Mrs. Haffner agrees that the pep assemblies are great for inducing pride in school sports, and for school spirit, but she thinks it would be beneficial to have a set structure for the pep assemblies and to have the cheerleaders, band and maybe spirit club work together to plan them.

Schaffer thinks we should have pep assemblies for winter and spring sports because they keep students looking forward to other sports, instead of just football. Schaffer said everyone deserves to be recognized and cheered on by their peers.  

“I do believe we should have pep assemblies for winter and spring sports as well,” Mrs. Haffner said, “because all sports do deserve to be celebrated.”

Schaffer would like to add more activities, like the games during the Homecoming pep assembly, so more students have an opportunity to participate and be involved in them. He thinks pep assemblies have a lot of influence on student culture because they get everyone excited. 

Schaffer also thinks that having the cheerleaders perform more will get people more excited as well. He said, “The cheerleaders always get everyone hyped up with the band dances, and cheers.”
