The Jungle Brings Back School Spirit

IMG_1528There was a “Beat Massillon” Pep Rally on Thursday, August 28th.  There was the band, cheerleaders, football team and all the students in the gym looking for something that has been missing….school spirit.  Well, they found it and they found it big!  The Jungle, Perry’s new school spirit group led the pep rally from start to finish and it was amazing.  There were school cheers being yelled, songs being learned, and a sense of community and spirit in the building.  This sense of spirit spilled right onto the football field Thursday night as the Panthers battled the Tigers.  The Jungle was out in full force, painted in pink to show support for Mrs. Budd.  They stood on their feet and cheered the entire game.  The Panthers came up on the short end of the score, but something much bigger was won Thursday night.  A sense of community,  a sense of pride, a sense of school spirit.  #WeArePanthers
