The first day at Robinson is like no other. All students check in with their first period teacher, and then eighth through twelfth graders head to the gym and get ready for the annual pep rally, while the seventh graders proceed to the theater to learn the Robinson Fight Song. After the whole song is memorized, the “sevies” walked to the entrance of the gym. With cheering students and a pounding drumline, the new Robinson seventh graders charge through Robbie the inflatable ram.

“The first time I felt like a true Robinson student was running through Robbie the Ram. I think running through the Ram, and having the whole school cheer for us is a great way to start the next six years at a new school,” said Natasha Lennon, seventh grade. She also said that the goal of the pep rally was to bring the school closer together, and to introduce new students to Robinson.

After all of the newly instated Robinson students joined the rest of the school on the bleachers, the sevies learned the Robinson Slap, Clap, Woo cheer. Over the course of the entire rally, the Cheer team, Dance team, Color Guard, and Marching Rams performed, and the SGA played marshmallow dodgeball against the teachers.The whole Ram Rally took most of first period which is one hour and thirty minutes long, and the staff covered many topics about Robinson.

“I really liked how they ramped people up. And the marshmallow game, throwing the tee shirts, having the band play, and other performances of the dance team and got the people excited,” said Hailey Marsay, 8th grade.

After all the festivities of the Ram Rally were over, the students headed back to their first period class, where they were put on a short lock-down. During the first day of school, many students said that they had trouble finding some of their classes, but got used to finding their classes after the third day of school. Many seventh graders also agreed that middle school is very different from elementary school, and that it was hard adjusting to the new block schedule at Robinson. Natasha also said that the classes that aren’t in the seventh grade subschool (the core classes behind the locker bays) were generally harder to find, that she wouldn’t change a thing about the pep rally, and her favorite part of the pep rally was the marching band.
