A Pie Eating Contest… Relay Races… Pumpkin Painting… Oh my!
Teachers, students and their families, and prospective students enjoyed a beautiful day at Seth Low I.S. 96, attending the first pep rally of the year on Saturday, October 18.
Seth Low is reinventing itself and becoming stronger than ever. “Parent and community involvement are essential components when educating middle school children. Creating opportunities for our students and their families to bond is part of our responsibility as a New York City public community school,” commented Principal Erin Lynch.
The schoolyard was quickly filled by the 11 a.m. start time. There were a DJ, pumpkin painting, face painting, an exciting pie-eating contest, a hula hoop contest and relay races. In addition, the cheerleaders and dance team performed, and Seth the Lion was there to take pictures!
Murodjon Rajab, a seventh grade student said, “The pep rally was so awesome. I loved the pie-eating contest and the pumpkin painting. I thought it was the best day ever!”
Ernest Hamzaj, another seventh grade student, said, “The pep rally was really fun. I jump-roped and shot basketballs and I almost beat my teacher!”
If you weren’t able to attend the pep rally, Seth Low, 99 Avenue P, will be holding its second open house on Wednesday, November 5 from 6 to 8 p.m.
