New Canaan High School Pep Rally Petition
To whom this may concern,
New Canaan High School’s mission is to create conditions that encourage all of its students to excel. With teachers, coaches, and other students giving an immense amount of dedication toward our growth in character and personal integrity, we can all agree that we take pride in being a part of this school. The atmosphere of trust and mutual respect that characterizes our own school sets a great example for other schools. We all acknowledge the fact that, while some of us are still working on understanding their responsibilities to preserve this atmosphere, it is the responsibility of students to conduct themselves in a respectable manner.
With all this being said, the pep rally has been a tradition in the past to which we have clearly not earned this year. We are respectful of the thought process behind the decision to eliminate it, however, we are willing to prove ourselves as mature and respectful students and earn our rights back to have one this year. The tradition of the pep rally has been one of many traditions at New Canaan High School in which students, teachers, and coaches take pride in participating in. It not only brings our school together, but when executed correctly, it can truly demonstrate positive messages and have positive influences.
Keeping our request in mind, we are also accepting the responsibility to abstain from alcohol, drugs, and any other illegal substance that would hold the school accountable.
On behalf of New Canaan High School’s students and faculty, we hope that you take the time to reconsider hosting the pep rally next Friday, purely focusing on how it brings our school together and what a great tradition it’s been for many years.
