EOG Pep Rally

Sir Purr from the Carolina Panthers visited our 3rd – 5th grade students to give them an encouraging pep talk before taking the EOGs.  


This motivational program focused on tips for physical and mental preparation.  They used the acronym SPIKE (Sleep, Prompt, Inquire, Keep Fit, Eat Healthy) and included messages from Panthers players and Top Cats.  

Each student received a book mark, several students received autographed cards, and one student from each class received a team book.

This show was interactive and our students enjoyed watching Sir Purr dance around and act out the different SPIKE tips.  

Our students enjoyed this Pep Rally as well as their teachers and administrators singing at the end.  

Ms. Correll, our talented 5th grade teacher, wrote lyrics related to EOGs to the tune of the song "Happy".  

This was a fun and exciting Pep Rally for everyone!
