On Friday, August 23, Springville High faculty, staff, and students clambered onto the football field stands for the annual welcome back, “Hello Assembly.”  The weather was gloomy, but spirits were kindled with excitement and fire to kick-off a new school year.

Eighteen new faculty members were welcomed as new Red Devils.  Matt Niu, Student Body President personally welcomed everyone back and introduced this year’s theme, “Remember the Red.”

As it started to rain, cheerleaders and student body officers taught the crowd a new dance that will be performed by the crowd at each home game throughout the year.

“I loved how everyone wore red; even the new students supported and wore the color.  It shows the spirit of everyone and made the new students feel welcome.”

Tiahna Petereit said, “The rain added to the experience.”

“The excitement and joy of everyone getting up and participating in the dance was my favorite.  Shows the spirit and love of the school; I thought it was cool,” said Kelcie Collett.

“My favorite part of the assembly was learning the dance,” said Miriam Burrell.

Hope Farish said, “I could feel the energy of the student body because we are ready for a successful school year.”
