On April 19, Timberline had its annual Spring Assembly and held many inclusive activities, as well as a club parade to recognize multiple active clubs. The assembly included clubs walking out around the perimeter of the gym floor, black lights and glow sticks for our high spirited students, sports games, a dance battle of students versus teachers and performances by the choir and dance team.
“I thought it was really fun” said senior Kaija Blumer, “I go to all the pep assemblies and I think after my four years of high school, this [assembly] was probably the most entertaining and unique.” Many students found the assembly refreshing and more interactive. The black lights in the gym lit to make those who participated in the spirit day glow, giving a new and exciting feel to the event and caught the attention of many students and teachers.
“The spring assembly was a breath of fresh air from the stressful state of classes right now as our AP tests are quickly approaching,” said senior Haylee Ward. “The leadership team always does an amazing job getting us hyped up.” It can be difficult to determine what will gain the attention of the student’s and provoke excitement, however, this assembly appeared to have more of an impact.
“This year’s spring assembly was extremely engaging, particularly when compared to the [assemblies] in previous years,” said junior Jason Griffith. “Seeing the ‘Backwoods Boys’ face off against the ‘Wonder Boys’ was very entertaining and was definitely able to captivate the audience’s attention.” Leadership has put a lot of effort into these assemblies and included many interactive activities that captivated the attention of many students and restored some school spirit, and many hope for the same for our next assembly.
The next school assembly will be held in the gym on Friday, May 3 to reveal prom court, as well as to celebrate seniors moving on to college.
