Wednesday, October 11th 2023: The dreaded PSAT day in EBHS was upon us. But for the first time in three years at the high school, the Class of 2024 wasn’t taking the test, instead they had a packed day with senior activities including a presentation, college essay help, and Kahoots but more importantly, their senior class picture and last pep rally.

Seniors wearing white were led by photographers into the bleachers and on this unseasonably hot October day smiled for their senior class picture. For some seniors like Amena Presswala, taking the senior picture “made senior year feel so much more real” she says “it was a much more fun day with my friends” when comparing it to the previous years’ experience of taking the PSAT. After the picture, the seniors were off, some to get together with their teammates, and others to sit with their friends on the bleachers.

The pep rally commenced with the entire school in attendance, music playing, cheerleaders performing, and games afoot. Team captains led their squads in front of the school, speaking to their season and introducing the seniors.

“I really loved seeing the school all come together,” Anna Sawicki said as she recalled introducing the field hockey team, “I was honored to be able to represent our team.”

“Watching the classes compete in games was so entertaining,” says senior Rebecca Post, “it got everyone interested and rooting for their class.” After a few competitive rounds of tug-of-war and a relay race, the pep rally came to a close with the Hugs for Brady wagon parade. Clubs had decorated wagons to raise money for Hugs for Brady and the colorful wagons making their way around the track garnered cheers from the club members who made them.

For the seniors, the pep rally was the perfect way to spend the day surrounded with friends and fun, leading everyone into the homecoming dance and game later in the week.
