At Spring View Middle School, twice a year, the Leadership team puts on a rally. In a rally, each academy (Cornell, Harvard, Princeton, and Yale for seventh grade and USC Berkeley, and Stanford for eighth grade) competes against each other to see who’s the “best”. Everyone gets dressed up in their academy’s colors and there’s a lot of cheering and screaming which makes for an awesome day of friendly competition.
Each rally is a different theme. For example, last year we did a Hollywood Movie Premier rally and a Summer Olympics Rally. This time, we put on a Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory one. Rallies take months of planning because we have to pick a theme, make decorations, think of tons of games, and perfect everything.
