Pep Club Creates School Spirit

Ariana Climo
Pep Club Officers – Hanna Howard, Liz Kantoris, Zoey, Wilders, and Sophia Bisher

The Pep Club, advised by Mrs. Rachel Frye, is here to bring forth school spirit and inspire our sports teams to perform 110% of their best efforts. Hanna Howard, the club’s student leader, has stated, “Pep Club was created to bring school spirit to Greater Latrobe. We will hold fundraisers, games, and events to celebrate our school.” 

The Pep Club is in charge of many things, including the Pep Rally, raising money for charities, raising school spirit through bake sales and other festivities. Every year the Pep Rally chooses a charity to raise money and awareness for. Last year they raised  almost $3,000 for the Kidney Cancer Association, in honor of Mr. Ferraro. This year they are going to do this fundraiser again, however they are quite unsure about which charity they should donate to. 

During the week of homecoming, there will be a Battle of the Halls between all of the grades. The hallways will be decorated by the class officers and anyone who wants to volunteer. The hallways participating are upper C, lower C, upper S, and lower S.

12th grade: Upper S – Monsters, Inc.

Class officers: Belle Blossey, Ella Bulava, Sarah Hoffman, and Jacob Elliott

11th grade: Upper C – The Lorax

Class officers: Eric Bisignani, Chiara Mongelluzzo, Marie Patterson, and Robin Reilly

10th grade: Lower S – Finding Nemo

Class officers: Luke Tomko, Jack Sacriponte, Cameron Mikulsky, and Mitchell Horner

9th grade: Lower C – Coco

Class officers: Claire Benning, Ray Swiderski, Haley Marucco, and Gabriella Roman


Next week will be Spirit Week. All themes were chosen by the club’s officers. On Monday it will be Twin Day, Tuesday will be Barbie vs. Ken, Wednesday is Dress Like a Teacher, Thursday is Pajama Day, and finally Friday will be School Spirit. 

In addition to Spirit Week, there will also be a  Fall Pep Rally held on September 29  in the main gym from 1:30-2:40. They request that you will come with a positive attitude and school spirit ready for the big homecoming game. In addition to the Fall Pep Rally, the Pep Club will also be hosting a Corn Hole Tornament. On October 12, in the main gym,  the tournament will start at 3:15. There will be refreshments, cookies, possibly a pizza, and a giftcard to Chick-Fil-A for the winning team. Please keep in mind that there will be a $5 entry fee per person. Tickets will be sold during lunch, so bring your money if you’re interested. 

Pep Club is available to anyone in grades 9-12. If you have any questions, or you would like to join Pep Club, please feel free to talk to Mrs. Frye. To keep up to date with Pep Club, you can follow them on Instagram @gl_pepclub.

About the Contributor
Ariana Climo, Staff Writer
Ariana Climo is currently a sophomore at Greater Latrobe Senior High. Ariana has always been into writing, but she really got into it in fifth grade. Ariana remembered that she had an English teacher who held a writing competition. The students would have a few prompts to pick from and she picked something that had to do with a genie. Ariana named it, “Ella the Genie,” after her youngest sister, since she was really into genies at the time. So, Ariana got to work on writing it, and she ended up winning the writing competition for the whole grade! It was definitely a life changer for her, and an accomplishment that she is still proud of till this day! Ariana ended up writing a sequel to it, but she never showed it to my class. Anyways, that’s how Ariana got into writing! She does want to eventually write a book, but she’s not too sure on what yet. Ariana eventually does want to go into some sort of art field, preferably one with graphic design/art direction. She either wants to do that or become a prosecutor or a judge. Ariana said how much she just hates seeing innocent people suffer while these monsters get to rome free, unaffected. Right now, Ariana currently has a dog and five cats. She’s not much of a cat person, but she still has to deal with their shenanigans and their cuteness. Her dog, Carmel, is very sweet, friendly, but she can also be very sassy. Despite that, she’s really easy to talk to/vent to, because she never says a word! Alongside her pets, she also has three sisters. Their names are Lillian (Lily), Adalina (Adi), and Ella. She lives with them, and her parents, here in cloudy Pennsylvania. This is her very first year of taking an actual journalism class, and she can’t wait to see how much progress she’ll make in the future! She hopes to expand on her communication skills, her confidence, and her writing ability with this course. She also hopes to meet new people, see new things, and witness new experiences! Ariana strives to be the best person that she can be. So, Ariana hopes that you will join her on this journey into becoming a member of the High-Post!
