In the midst of a pandemic, social distancing and distance learning, Boulder City High School found a way to celebrate Homecoming 2020 and crown the court by way of a virtual pep rally.
The pep rally was streamed on YouTube, Facebook Live and other social media sites on Friday, Nov. 20, according to BCHS Principal Amy Wagner. The event featured members of the court and the king and queen participating in games at home.
“We always do games or dances for homecoming,” said Wagner. “This time we just did it virtually.”
The virtual pep rally also included a video of someone dressed in a shark costume running around the empty school. Students guessed who it was, and the winner received a gift card. Additionally, the new teachers participated in the pep rally by each of them singing a portion of the high school fight song.
Wagner said the event went so well she plans to have more virtual pep rallies while the school is doing distance learning.
