Students assemble for the annual back to school rally

At Inspire, the school year is kickstarted by the Welcome Back Rally. 

From new freshman participants, to experienced senior advisories, everyone went all in for this event. The unfamiliar feeling of getting up in front of the whole school as a freshmen is something all students can relate to. 

Alastair Davis (12) recalled a memory from their freshmen performance. “It was pretty much just our chant. We seriously thought that people were going to do chants instead of the skits, and we only prepared a chant”

For freshmen, creating a skit is the first way they get to know their advisory.  While seniors have three years in advisory under their belt, the new students are still getting to know what Inspire is all about.  

Maddie Comer (9) predicts her advisory will be different her senior year. “I think we’ll all be a lot closer because we will have been in the same classroom for four years.”

The teamwork required for the performances was impressive.  We saw an entire pirate ship, Hopkins’ Got Talent, as well as the familiar rivalry between advisories.

The Welcome Back Rally marked the end of the honeymoon period – the newness of school has worn off, students have memorized their schedules and teachers are starting their normal routines.  With the rally over, school has officially begun at Inspire.
