Rivalry Week is an annual spirit week that prepares the students for the football game against Lake Mary High School. Following tradition, the Leadership class set up a lunch pep rally on Friday, Sept. 10 to build enthusiasm and school pride. To accomplish this, the lunch pep rally included activities such as face painting, a performance from the cheerleaders and drumline, cornhole, and the opportunity to pour ice cream toppings on Principal Brian Blasewitz. “They came to me and they said ‘do you want to do a Blasewitz sundae?’ and I said ‘sure, why not?’,” Blasewitz said. “The ice cream was cold and it was sticky, but it was fun.”
