Pep Rally Aides assist in all of the full-school assemblies that take place during the year, either Pep Rallies or the Day of Giving Assembly. They organize the events from start to finish. Meetings are held weekly, but some pre-show weeks are more intense than others. There are many moving parts to a smooth production, and their job is to be invisible. As an aide, you make contact with Pantene, the American Cancer Society, politicians, local companies, etc. In many ways, it is a thankless job, but the satisfaction of creating school spirit and pride, through your personal effort, is like no other.

 Club Description:


Throughout the year, the Student Council of Londonderry High School offers events which serve the school community. The largest and perhaps most important of these events is Freshman Orientation. Every year on the day before the first day of school, incoming freshman and new students are welcomed to Londonderry High School. These new students are greeted by members of Student Council as their buses arrive. Members of our council lead students to the gymnasium for opening ceremonies. At the conclusion of this class assembly students are guided to their first period class. For the remainder of the day, members of Student Council are located throughout the school to assist students who are lost. Because of the school's size, help locating rooms is always appreciated by the incoming students. During lunch periods members of Student Council distribute snacks, bottled water, and a welcome letter to every student. The overall goal of freshman Orientation is to make new students feel welcome and comfortable in locating their classes. This orientation allows new students to recognize familiar faces that will gladly help on the first days of the school year. Freshman Orientation is one of the most important events of the school year because Student Council is able to help ALL new students feel welcome.
