The Nicolet High School dance team will finally get to perform the routine they designed specifically for the student body after all on Wednesday.
The all-school pep rally has been rescheduled for 1:50 p.m. Wednesday and will recognize the achievements of the two students with perfect ACT test scores, Annie Jen and Nancy Gao, as well as string of other accomplishments.
In a press released issued by the high school Monday, District Administrator Rick Monroe said it was a sad day when the rally had to be canceled, but with so many successful students this year, it was important to recognize those accomplishments.
“We have an outstanding group of dedicated students in all grade levels displaying Nicolet’s commitment to excellence," Monroe said.
Those accomplishments include:
- Recent athletic achievements
- Recent academic achievements
- Three students scoring a 35 on their ACT
- Seven 2013 National Merit Scholarship semifinalists
- One National Achievement Scholarship Program semifinalist
- Nine National Merit Scholarship Commended Students.
Nearly 17 percent, or one out of every six seniors, scored 30 or higher on the ACT, the release said.
The rally will feature performances by both the Nicolet dance team and the pep band, who missed out on their chance to perform when the rally was canceled Sept. 21. Administrators feared a "disruption" of the rally amidst a chaotic week.
Homecoming Week was first jostled by a group of seniors who decided to circumvent the planned dress-up day with their own theme of "LAX (Lacrosse) Bros and Preppy Hoes.” That was followed by multiple incidents of vandalism all over Nicolet, cancellation of the annual homecoming pep rally and the arrest of a former school board member for disorderly conduct at a gathering in the school parking lot following the football game.
"While we were all disappointed when the homecoming pep rally was canceled, we will have much more to celebrate on Wednesday,” Monroe said.
