Theme: "Where's Waldo"
Objective: Class Spirit Perpetual Trophy given at Spring Rally
Auditions: Masters/Mistress of Ceremonies dancers, games, singers
Time: 60 minutes
The Spring Spirit Rally culminating event to spring spirit week is the spring rally. Waldo and his friends were everywhere on campus. Teachers and school staff were invited to participate. Using students’ ideas, the student leadership groups created scenery: school atmosphere, beach scene, cityscape, and carnival. Each scenery depicted the looking for Waldo theme. The fake Waldo would appear - dressed in school colors hiding and popping up somewhere holding part of the scenery. The real Waldo was hidden somewhere in the audience. The scenery depicted the entertainment of events. The script was written by students using the idea that Waldo is somewhere in each scene. The continual search for the real Waldo brought the rally to a close after the search visited all of the scenes and where the performances were watched pertained to each scene: spirit leaders, class performance, spring sports captains, flag twirlers, dancers, sport games, funny carnival games, beach games, city hip-hop, audience participation, etc.
To the surprise of everyone, the real Waldo would appear out of the audience and demand for one more game and deliver the spirit trophy to the highest-class participation.
Evaluation: very positive, student and staff involvement, student directed, student D. J.
