Our Homecoming celebration kicked off on Friday afternoon with an end-of-day Pep Rally that included a fundraiser for the Red Cross Hurricane Relief. Organized by our Student Senate, the pep rally was a terrific combination of spirit, fun and community service!
With students decked out in Red, White or their team uniforms, our Fall athletic teams were introduced by the team captains, with music provided by our Jazz Band and our student group “The Moondogs.”
Inspired by last year’s fundraiser for Puerto Rico, the Student Senate organized a “Pie a Teacher in the Face” fundraiser. As part of this fundraiser, students raised funds to earn the right to “pie” a selected teacher in the face. At the end of the challenge, students managed to raise nearly $1,300!
The National Anthem was performed by Emma Melnikov and signed by Charlotte Goldbaum. The Wheatley PTO supported the pie in your face fundraiser.
