Spirit rallies. Mandatory event, and don't even think about trying to skip out on a spirit rally! If you have attended rallies you should know they are incredibly fun and fantastic. No longer will spirit rallies just be games and mini performances, but they will be the ultimate test to each class's abilities. Think of them as the Olympics: Lowell Edition or the Triwizard Tournament...for muggles... and if you keep reading, you can see how we will go about having the best rallies this year!
Fall & Spring Spirit Rallies
Fall spirit rally! The very first official rally of the year. The fall spirit week builds up to this very one day. (To learn more about Spirit Committee, go under the Boards page drop down menu, down to committees, and then to spirit committee) Each grade hangs up their class banner, a dance battle between each class takes place on the field, and hardcore games put the students to the test. This rally is filled with performances, dance numbers, and a whole lot of screaming!! As for the spring rally, it is pretty much the same, except spirit committee is not active during this time.
Performances Teams, clubs, or groups that usually perform during the spirit rallies: Lowell Dance Company, Drum Corps, Cheer, Song, Senior Letter. This list is subject to change or modifications.
Classic Games There are a few Lowell favorites when it comes to rally games. One is Catch the Cardinal! A special guest puts on the cardinal suit and must escape the select runners who are trying to steal the cardinal's flag belt. Another is the Noodle Game. Two people are selected to go on a one-on-one battle round. Two noodles are dropped somewhere in the middle of the field, the goal is to find your noodle (while being blindfolded) and tag the opponent with it first.
The Halloween Rally is not as big as the Fall and Spring rally but no less fun or awesome! A big part of what happens is the Halloween costume parade/contest. Those who feel confident enough in their costumes line up on the side of the catwalk and show off their costumes to the rest of school! The winner is decided by crowd popularity.
Valentine's Day Rally
Valentine's Day rally is similar to that of the Halloween rally, it is held in the courtyard, not the football field. Game show like activities are put on on the catwalk for couples or best friends to test how well they know each other!
