Pep Rally Ideas

Be Prepared:

• Make sure you have everything you need and that everyone is where they're supposed to be before the pep rally starts.

• Put an agenda together and make sure all the key people recieve one.

• Stick to your schedule but plan for things to run over.

• Ask the necessary people to participate at least 2 weeks in advance.


A Good Pep Rally Should:

• Get your team fired up and ready to play!

• Honor other athletes', clubs' and organizations' accomplishments.

• Create school and community unity. (ex: Don't end with class competitions)

• Teach good sportsmanship.

• Prepare and inform the crowd about the big game.

• Involve everyone! This includes the stundent body; teachers and staff; marching band and colorguard; other spirit teams such as the dance team or pom squad; other sports teams, clubs and organizations as well as the community (distinguished guests, parents, coaches etc).


A Good Pep Rally Will Include:

• Easy-to-follow cheers/chants that you use at all the games -- crowd involvement is a must!

• Skits, games and spirit activities that involve faculty, sports teams, clubs, students, etc.

• Sprit contests and competitions (class vs. class, teachers vs. students, club vs. club, etc)

• Introduction of players and coaches

• Short routines by school groups (marching band, drill team, dancer team, pom squad, stomp team, and cheerleaders, etc)


Great Tips:

• Have a theme throughout your pep rally to help tie activities together.

• Speeches and anouncements should be quick while still saying what needs to be said. Make sure that the microphones work properly and its easy to hear what the person is saying. Recruit team captains to make some announcements so kids are more likely to listen!

• Make your entrance exciting, flashy, and fun! Try to make it exciting by spiriting, interacting with the audience, leading them with yells, etc. Go in with the mascot if possible.

• You should have some music during the pep rally. Not during the whole pep rally, but there should be some to get the crowd spirited, for example as the student body first comes in. Music makes a pep rally more fun, but don't make the mistake of playing an entire song. Music should change often and be fun!

• Be creative and original! Grab their attention with something out of the ordinary! Try to make each pep rally different and more exciting than the last.

• Involve as many participants as possible. Remember that people will support something they helped create.

• Make sure the master of ceremonies is exciting (how about the local D.J. or a popular teacher?)


Spirit Ideas, Games and Skits

• Tape candy (starbursts, lolipops, etc.) under seats. As the rally begins, inform students to look under their chair for a possible surprise.

• Have football players carry your mascot in on a platform like a king.

• Assign each class a part in a skit. Each time something happens, the class yells their specific phrase.

• Use a Spirit Stick and present it to those who win class competitions.

• Have door prizes at pep rallies. Give points to the class with the best attendance

• Plan a bonfire rally the night before a big game (if allowed)

• Incorporating signs in your cheers, games or skits are a great way to keep the crowd involved!

• The week leading up to the pep rally make "spirit week". For example you could have 70's day, opposite sex day, twin day, wacky wednesday, camo day, PJ day, etc. Make the day of the pep rally school colors day!

• A "Fired up and Ready" theme: hire an antique fire truck to come to school and park behind the building. Schedule the fire alarm to go off so the kids came out of the school thinking it is a real fire alarm. After everyone is outside and lined up, have all the cheerleaders came riding out on the fire truck! You can get off and do a cheer about "its getting hot" or "fire up the crowd!" Everyone will be really surprised. You can wear real "gear" like cheap little plastic firemen hats!

• Have a yelling contest between the grades! Each grade screams 'Go [mascot]' 5 times as loud as they can. The teachers and staff are the judges. Whichever grade gets the most votes gets the spirit stick until the next pep rally! (thanks Mary)

• Have a mock interview where you take students and teachers and ask them questions, but before they can answer you play bits and peices of songs ~ example: Ask Ms. Scott what she was before she was a teacher and then played "I used to be a boogie singer" from "Play that funky music white boy". Then ask her what she sang in and play "I used to sing in a rock and roll band" from the same song. Just don't tell the person you are interviewing what you are going to do! The crowd will get a kick out of this and the teachers will love it!

• Have popular teachers (especially men) dress up in old cheerleading uniforms for the day!

• Have a "Miss Pep Rally" contest. Take the varsity football or boy's basketball team and dress them up in really girly clothing, give them wigs, do drag-queen make-up, ect. Also, give them girl names, like John might be Joan, or Tim might be Tina. Then whoever gets the most applause while walking the "runway" wins!

• Have the senior football players dress up old cheerleading uniforms and teach them a dance. The boys will ham it up and the crowd will love it! It will be a hilarious way to pump up school spirit.

• Sit the senior football players in front of the student body. Explain to them that they are going to get a kiss on the cheek and then they will have to guess which cheerleader kissed them! Blindfold the boys and then bring out their Moms! The Moms kiss their son, then run out of the gym. Take off the blindfolds and let the boys guess. Of course, they'll all be wrong. Do the whole thing again but when they are all done guessing wrong, bring out their Moms for them to see! The crowd will go crazy.

• Have the senior members of the marching band walk down the hall or go to each lunch mod playing the fight song with the cheerleaders following, just going crazy!

• Have a contest between the cheerleaders and student you pull from the crowd. Each cheerleader does a trick: for example, heel stretch, scorpian, jump, or bow n arrow. Then the student has to copy them! Most student don't have the flexibility so its really funny to watch them try!

• Hold a "Pie a Cheerleader" raffle. During the week leading up to the pep rally, sell tickets 1 for $2 or 3 for $5. Have a few cheerleaders volunteer to get pied and between games at pep rally draw a raffle ticket and whoever's ticket it is gets to pie the cheerleader! Use whipcream pies and have the cheerleader wear a big T shirt over her uniform so it doesnt get ruined!

• Surprise the school by having the cheerleaders and dance/spirit/pom team dress up as football players and throw around some footballs for awhile, while the football players dress up as cheerleaders and do some cheers! You can do the same thing for basketball season.

• Have a mock game.. recruit mock cheerleaders to wear tons of makeup and goof up on purpose, and recruit mock players for the other team and mess up on purpose!

• Paint faces during each lunch mod for 25 cents! That way everyone can look spirited for the pep rally at the end of the day!

• Hold a mock cheerleading tryout for the rival team's cheerleading squad. Have one girl be Klutzy (Klutzy Kelly) another a snob (Snobby Sarah) one shy (Shy Shelly) another country (Hick Heather) another "gangster" (Gangsta Gina) and so on!

• Recruit girls from the cheerleading squad, volleyball team, soccer team, basketball team, etc. to pretend to be girls from the rival team going into a beauty salon to get their hair done! Have girls dressed in your school colors be the "beauticians" and put shaving cream, baby powder, eggs, lotion, butter and oil in the other girls' hair. The students love it, they won't believe these girls are letting people do this to their hair!

• Have a skit called "Honey I love you, but I just can't smile" You pick a 5 pairs of boys or boy-girl pairs and have them sit on a bench or chairs facing eachother. Each player must go along the line and ask their partner: "Honey do you love me?" The partner replies "Honey, I love you but I just can't smile". They have to look at them the whole time and they cannot laugh or smile. If they laugh or smile the other person takes their seat and moves down the row. The person that goes the farthest wins! If there is a tie, have them do it to the cheerleaders. Give a soda or a candy bar as a prize.

• Have two people from each class come down to the floor. Tell them you will be putting eggs all over the floor and they must walk across the gym floor without stepping on them. Let them see you set the eggs out and then blind fold them. After they are all blind folded, take all of the eggs away. Have them walk across the floor. You can also tell the people they have to step really high or have to walk like a chicken.

• We had a gummy worm eating contest. We had one representative from each class come to the table. Not using their hands, they had to get 5 gummy worms out of the pie plate full of whip cream and put them in a cup. The first person done won.
-Coach Lisa

• Pull students from the crowd and sit them at a table. Make it "just so happen" that the football captain is in the first chair. Blindfold him first, while explaining to the crowd and other players that they will all be blindfolded, there will be a pie in front of them and in the pie is a starburst. Whoever finds the starburst first, without using their hands, wins! The catch is you only blindfold the football captain and hes the only one with a pie! Its hilarious to see him going crazy to win when hes actually the only one playing!

• We took 1 person from each grade and sat them down on chairs. We took a fishing pole and stuck a gummy worm to it with a string. Then, we blindfolded them. The cheerleaders stood behind them and dangled the gummy worms around. The first person to find the gummy worm with their tongue and ate it, won.
-Katie H.

• We called a boy and a girl down from each class and had them stand in front of a cheerleader who had two pie pans full of flour. There was a piece of bubble gum under the pile of flour and the first class to have both members blow a bubble won.
-Mallory

• One of my favorite games to play at pep rallies is the baby bottle game. Fill a baby bottle with Kool-Aid and see who can drink it the fastest. You can also trick some of the people by using lemon juice.
-Tiffany

• Get two students from each grade. One person out of the two from each grade puts shaving cream all over their face (make sure you make it really thick. DON'T RUB IT IN...) then the other person gets a bag of Cheetos. The object of the game is to throw Cheetos to their partners face. First team to get five stuck wins! Its really funny and a lot of fun.
-Linda

• Decorate a hill or walkway near the stadium with clipart helmets on a stick with each of the football player's names and numbers on them! The players and their parents will love it and you'll let everyone know its game day!

• Have a Mr. (your school mascot goes here) Contest. Call 10 guys from the senior class down to the gym floor and make them do all kinds of crazy things. Have staff members for judges. Make them do a cheerleading jump, a muscle-showing contest (they love that one!), a crazy dance to a short excerpt of music, and they have to answer a question that they pick from a bowl. For example, one question might be "What is your most embarassing moment?" Then, the judges give them a score for each category based on the criteria that you write down on the score sheet. Add up the scores, and the person with the highest amount is Mr. (your mascot). Give them a crown made out of tinfoil and they are King of the pep rally!

• The skit we did for one of our pep rallies was called "Candy Store." We had two cheerleaders in the skit as well. One of them would be the person trying to sell the store, and the other would be the person wanting to buy it. The person buying it would say they need things in the store. These things would be like, a door, shelves, an open sign, a slushie machine, a cash register, a fan. Well, the things the person buying it wants would be made by the players. Like, two people would be the door, and they'd hold their arms out in front of them and when people would walk through, they'd make a squeaky noise or something and swing. The open sign would be someone standing outside the door saying, "We are OPEN!" They can do any arm movements they would like. The shelves, well, that's pretty self explanatory. The fan would be a group of 3 or so people spinning around in a circle making noises like a fan. The cash register of course would be someone making a "cha-ching" noise when someone pressed a certain part of their body. The slushie machine would be someone spinning around in a circle, making noise, when someone walked by 'it.' There could also be a soda fountain and many other items that could be made out of people. Then when all the things have been made inside the 'store', the person buying would say, "Now all I need is candy!" and the person selling would say, "What do you need candy for when you got all these suckers (referring to the people playing the store items)!" We gave everyone who played as an item a sucker. It was fun and brought in a lot of laughs. The students loved it, and the students at my school usually hate pep rallies. We were proud cheerleaders!
-Kimberly

• Using a twister mat, put mustard and honey on the yellow dots, ketchup on the red dots, chocolate syrup on the blue dots, and whip cream on the green dots. Have a student from each grade play. The one who stays up the longest wins. This game is called Messy Twister!
-Brandi

• Get 15 or 20 people from each grade and have them line up in different lines for each grade. They lay down head to toe in a straight line. Using giant rubber balls, have them use their feet to pass the ball up and down the line of people. If someone drops the ball, they have to start all over (from the beginning of the line). The first team to pass the ball up and down the line a certain amount of times wins.
-Rachael

• Have the varsity football players dress up the freshman & JV players up as girls! Use dresses, skirts, tank tops, bikinis, makeup, the works! A lot of times upper classmen will have younger brothers on the freshman or JV teams so that is always fun. The younger players looked ridiculous but the crowd loves it!

• This year we had a Mr. Cool Man contest. We allowed 5 football players to volunteer to be a part. We did not tell them what we were doing. The boys had to sit on a bag of ice the entire pep rally. The last one up won. We stopped the pep rally every 10 minutes to check on them. The mascot kept them cool by fanning them and spraying water on their faces.

• Heres a funny skit that no one will know its a skit til the end.. Have one of the cheerleaders goofing off during the pep rally and in front of everyone have the cheerleading coach yell at her and tell her that if she doesn't stop she can't be a part of the pep rally anymore. She stops for a little bit but starts goofing off again and she gets sent away by the coach! The student body will think shes in trouble. Have her come back about 5 minutes later with one of the senior football players and he has red kiss marks all over his face! The crowd will love it!

• For our homecoming pep rally, it was really hot, so we decided to do something that had to do with water. We randomly chose three guys and three girls. Then we told them that the guys had to pick a partner whom he or she trusted. At this time they got a little scared, but only until we brought out the pants and water balloons. The guys had to put on the pants, (which were way too big). The girls had to line up straight across from their partners. The girls had to toss the balloons across to the guys who had to catch them in their pants.
-Lacie

• Frozen T-shirts: We chose four boys from the basketball team and asked them in advance if they would mind taking their shirts off at the next pep rally. We took four t-shirts, rolled them up, wetted them down and froze them overnight. We took them out the morning of the pep rally and let them thaw out some, so they wouldn't be frozen solid. At the pep rally, we called the chosen guys down and told them they had to take their shirts off and put on the t-shirt we gave them. The first to get their shirt on won. They thought it would be so easy, until they realized the t-shirts were frozen! They had to beat them around on the gym floor and work really hard to get them unrolled! And then, when they finally did get them on, they were freezing! The crowd loved it!
-Summer

• For our most recent pep rally, we (the basketball and wrestling cheerleaders) decided to start a spirit stick award between the high school. The game we used was kind of funny. Each class was assigned to a part of the gym floor. When everybody got out there, we told them that they had to spell out a word using everybody in their class. The catch was that they had to spell it out so that it was readable and they had to get it done the fastest to win. We used the word LIONS (our mascot).
-Ashley

• This is a really fun game especially if you have a lot of people. You divide up into two or more teams. When your teams are divided up, have them stand in a straight line and hold hands. After that put a hoola-hoop on one end of the lines. Then they have to get the hoola-hoop to the other end of the line with out letting go of each other's hands. The first to get the hoola-hoop to the end of the line wins.
-Mary Maynord

• Question Game - Choose about 15 people from the stands. Be sure to include teachers, players, cheerleaders and fans. Have 15 chairs in a circle and have each person sit on a chair. Then start asking questions. For example, if you have ever had a speeding ticket, move 1 chair to the right. (Some will not move and the ones that move either get an empty chair or they sit on the person's lap if the chair is already taken.) This is really funny when guys sit on guys or a teacher sits on someone. You may end up with several people on one chair. Usually we have 20 questions that we go through. Some questions we've used are "if your mom still tucks you in at night, move 2 chairs to the left. If you ate breakfast this morning move 1 chair to the right. If you've been kissed today, move 1 chair to the left. We end it by saying "If you want the Cardinals to win tonight, lead the crowd in the cheer Let's go Cardinals". This is a lot of fun and works well if you choose people who are kind of crazy.
-Joann

• Our school's spirit is terrible, but one game at our pep rally really made them hysterical. We had 3 guys line up in front of three sleeping bags...each with a girl sitting on one. The guys pull the sleeping bags in a race around cones in our gym, the girls have to keep their hands in the air and try not to fall off. Girls were literally 'flying' off the bags, everywhere. It's called 'chariot racing' and it gives the crowd a good laugh if the boys are aggressive.
-Lynette

• We have a huge junior senior rival, so we picked five senior girls and five junior guys to have a pillow fight in a the boxing ring. The catch was though, their legs were taped together so once they fell they couldn't get up. Whoever had the most people standing won.
-Chaydha Pleasant

• One time we had a tug-a-war. So all the classes got out there, girls on one side boys on another. We were just about to start and our cheerleading coach told the boys they had to take their shoes off. It worked great, the girls won. The bad thing was the gym smelled.
-Rhianna

• At our school we do a hunt. We will hold big signs up that say what they need to have (real tattoo, guy& girl with shoelaces tied together, 3 people with same name in same grade, miss matched socks and girlfriend carrying boyfriend) whom ever wins gets a small bag of candy. Everyone loves this.
-Anne

• TP A TEACHER!! Have about 4 pairs of teachers (try to pair them up with one tall teacher and one short teacher). Then have 2 reps from each grade come down. They all have to empty a roll of Toilet Paper roll as fast as they can covering head to toe. The first grade that wins gets an activity day to themselves so encourage them to cheer them on! (try a movie day) Its a riot! Play music like "Tootsie Roll" and have cheerleaders throw tootsie rolls while all of this is going on.
-Tiffany

• Have 5 people from each grade take their shoes off and place them in the middle of the gym floor. Make them take their shoes strings out, too. Place 5 people from different grades at each side of the gym. The people at the corners have 2 minutes to find their shoes and lace them. The grade with the most people finished, wins!
-Anonymous

• During basketball season we had a three point contest. We sold tickets and drew names out of a bucket at the pep rally. They shot three pointers for a $20 gift certificate!

• For our last pep rally we did this game show like thing. We pulled people from the audience and made them do something totally ridiculous. We made guys race to get dressed in girls clothes, we had a toilet paper wrapping contest where the shortest teachers have to wrap the tallest basketball players, a buddy dancing contest where teachers had to get out on the court and dance with their arms hooked (we made them do the Tootsie Roll and the Chicken Dance), a marshmallow race where you have to twirl a marshmallow on a piece of string around your tongue until it gets into your mouth. It got the crowd, players, teachers, cheerleaders, and everyone else all pepped up for the game.
-Cheertil02

• We usually have a hard time getting our crowds involved, the only time they really enjoyed our pep rallies was when we pretended we were cheerleaders from the rival school. We had groups of two stretching (one layed down and another sat on top and we used a different body with different legs and stretched all kinds of crazy ways). It's really funny if the person under you makes her legs go crazy! Then we had the cheerleaders put on makeup. One cheerleader was behind a sheet and the other had her hands behind her back so the one that couldn't see put the makeup on. Then we showed them making and eating food using the same makeup contest. People couldn't stop laughing. They especially loved the finale to that pep rally, we had a spirit cake. A guy from each grade sat on a chair (make sure you cover the floor) and we poured flour, eggs, whipped cream, milk and sprinkles all over them. The person with the most yells won!
-Susan

• Once for a pep rally, the cheerleaders asked the football player's mothers for the boy's pajamas, blankets and also their stuffed animals. Then on the day of the pep rally the cheerleaders dressed up in those clothes and walked out on the gym floor. The crowd had to guess whose pajamas they belonged to. It was a lot of fun and it got the crowd really excited.
-Rachel

• One year at our senior pep rally the topic was "A Star is Born". Two minutes before the students were released to go to the gym we put the sound of a new born baby crying over the intercom so that the whole school could hear it. When everybody got into the gym we shut the lights off and put the spotlight on our school mascot dressed in a nurse's uniform and announced that a star is born. For our skit the seniors lined up at the end of the gym and had a relay race in which they had to crawl from station to station put on an adult diaper and bib, eat a full plate of apple sauce, drink a bottle of apple juice and then put a soft basketball in a baby goal. It was hilarious and the whole school loved it.
-Brittany

• For one of our pep rallies we decided that we'd had enough fun making the boys dress in drag, so each cheerleader had 2 football players dress her as a boy! Stuff hair under baseball caps, wear really baggy pants, big football jerseys, football pads everything!
-Nikki

• At one of our pep rallies, we decorated the whole gym like a graveyard with the names of all the teams we play on the tombstones and all the cheerleaders and the announcer dressed in black.
-Bryt

• We blind folded the football players and they got spun around. Then we had a pile of women's clothing at the other end of the gym. The players had to run against each other and put on one piece of clothing at a time. It was hilarious and the whole school got a big kick out of it.
-Heather

• Put funky clothes in the middle of the gym. Pick 2 teams for a basketball game. The players go center court and put on an article of clothing then go down and shoot. The winners are the first dressed basketball team.
-Dianna

• One of our funniest pep rallies involved the cheerleaders acting like on of the basketball players. Each one got a shooter shirt from the guy she picked and the guys got a tee shirt that the girl made him. The guys came out doing the school song. They were announced as the cheerleader's name and did a kick or a jump. Next, the girls came out and were a bad version of our boys team. Each girl demonstrated something that the basketball team does, but the didn't do it good. Ex: We had a guy who shoots 3's good. The girl shot the 3 but missed it by a mile. Another time, the dance team taught the basketball team a dance to some Backstreet Boys song. It was similar to the dance team's and was hilarious to watch!
-Anonymous

• Our basketball team was one game away from getting the gold ball. That's a perfect record. It's a huge deal in our town because it hasn't been done since '74. Anyway, we brought in the 5 starters' moms to play them as the other team. 2 cheerleaders who knew a lot about basketball were the referrees. It was hilarious. The cheerleaders wouldn't call anything at all for the moms, but if the guys even got close to the moms they would call charging and other calls.
-Kortnie

• One time our cheerleaders made up funny poems about each senior football player (without saying their names)and read them out loud and the crowd had to guess which player the poem was describing.
-EML

• This year at our homecoming pep rally, we had all the guys on the varsity team dress up as our rival team, and they came out in their little skirts doing the cheer in the beginning of BRING IT ON. Everyone got a laugh.
-Rachel

• We got 4 football players to put the end of a ballon in their mouth and the cheerleaders put whip cream all over the ballons. The cheerleaders shave the balloons with a razer and the last one to pop wins.
-Casse

• "We're Gonna Cream The Other Team"...Cheerleaders challenge the basketball team to a free throw contest. If all the cheerleaders make the basket, they win. If all the guys make them, they win. The catch is that they have to make the baskets blind folded. The cheerleaders go first, blind folded. Of coures they don't make any. But now it is the players turn to try. The cheerleaders blind fold them and count to three-- 1,2...and the cheerleaders cream them with a whip cream pie! This is a blast, everyone goes wild.
-Jennie

• At our last pep rally, we got all the seniors who played a fall sport to come in front of the student body. Then we blind-folded them and they played the animal game. The animal game is when two people are given an animal, and they have to find each other by making that animal noise! It was really funny!
-Tracie

• At our school, we have a relay race-- the girls vollyball team vs. the boys football team. They did crab walks, roll across the gym, go across on scoters, turn cartwheel or just plain run. The funniest part was when the vice principal was watching. The girls were losing so as the boys would reach 1 side of the gym , the principal and vice principal picked a football player for a dress code check, allowing the girls to get ahead.
-Emily Chambers

• Last year, for the very first football game, we had a theme of "Birth of a New Season." We got the baby pictures of all the athletes in the school (that play fall sports) and had a cutest baby contest. Our whole pep rally was based around baby things. The entire school loved it.
-Erin

• For senior night we had a big pep rally. We got all of the senior football players and all of the senior cheerleaders and lined them up at one end of the basketball court. We blind folded one guy and one girl and made them put their head on the end of a bat and spin around 15 times. Still blind folded they were given a balloon and guided by yelling and screaming had to run to the other end of the basketball court. There they sat on the balloon and ran back and blind folded the next person. Its the best because everyone is falling over everyone and it really gives the students something to laugh about.
-Jessica

• We felt like all the football players had been getting all the attention at the pep rallies, so while the classes were coming into the gym, we selected about 5 or 6 football players and 5 or 6 other people. The guys had to dress up, and the football players had to dance to Britney Spears (and sing along... of course) and the other guys had to sing to Christina Agulers (and dance!) We had a judge panel made of non-cheerleaders who picked the best Britney and the best Christina, and then those two had to battle it off with "The Boy is Mine" by Brandy and Monica!
-Sarah

• For our homecoming pep ralley we put all the girl attendants at one end of the gym and blind folded them. Then we scattered the boy attendants around the gym and the girls had to find their escorts. The boys were supposed to yell for their girl to let them know where they were, but the crowd was allowed to yell too, so it was fun because the girls couldn't hear their name being called!
-Kelcey

• Get faculty members' ok for this one first! Set up a table with jars and the names of various faculty members on the jars. Students put money in the jar to cast their vote as to who they wanted to see get pied by selected students at the Pep Rally. It was a great fundraiser. On the day of the Pep Rally we said "Everyone is a winner, here at our school. Fire when ready!" so all the teachers got pied!!
-Safiyyah

• Each year, we have a "Mr. & Mrs. Homecoming" competition at the pep rally. A girl and a guy from each grade have to dress up as an outrageous couple (i.e. Snow White and Dopey, Santa and Mrs. Clause, etc.). When it’s their turn, they parade around the gym and get the crowd excited. Most of the couples have a little dance routine together or throw candy out to the kids in the stands! A panel of judges selects the winning couple, and whichever grade they’re in gets points towards the spirit stick. It’s always a lot of fun and a real crowd pleaser!
-Emily

• For one pep rally, the coach let our varsity cheerleaders help shave his head after we won Homecoming! It was hilarious and everyone got a kick out of it!
-Amy

• Every year, we have a traditional Homecoming pep rally. We have a Drag Queen contest. We get a guy from every grade to dress up as a drag queen (we usually have about 2-3 girls help him with everything like make-up and stuff0. It is absolutely hilarious. And, if it is possible, we usually get the winner of the previous year to come out and crown the new winner. He is obviously dressed up as a drag himself again. I would suggest everybody to try it. It is the most hilarious thing you'll see.
-Sara

• Every year for our Homecoming pep rally we have students sign up for contests such as the limbo, wheelbarrow, and three-legged race. All four grades compete against each other; it's always a blast even though no one really wins anything, except pride.
-Lar

• For one of our homecoming skits we had one cheerleader covered in a white sheet and led out by another cheerleader. We explained that she was the most ugly, nasty, smelly thing on earth and asked the crowd if anyone dared to look. We had three couples who were all chosen ahead of time and when they looked they screamed and fainted from "terror" of the ugly sight. Then we got one of the football coaches to come out and when he went to look the girl under the sheet screamed. This really caught the coach by surprise and got the crowd howling with laughter. Just try to pick a coach that will be a good sport.
-Andrea

• At our pep-rally we had a "kiss the pig" contest. To raise money for a good cause we had a jar in each of the teacher's rooms. We put money in the jars all week long. The teacher who had the most money in his/her jar at the end of the week had to kiss the pig. We had a real pig come in our gym and the teacher had to kiss it. Everyone loved it. It got everyone excited and pumped up for the game.
-Lisa

• We had a pep rally where two cheerleaders pick two girls and two guys from each team. Then you blind fold one at a time, spin them around about 8 times and place them on the free throw line. They each get 3 throws. If they hit the back board that is one point. If they make it in, its 3 points. The team with the most points wins!
-Christine

• We had 5 of our senior guys leave the gym. We told them that they had to come in and act like they were doing something (ex. riding a bull, a motorcycle, a muscle man contest, etc.) but they had to do it sitting down in a chair (we used swivel chairs) and stay in their chairs.
