Pep rallies energize a crowd before a sporting event in middle school, high school, or college. But that’s the whole point, isn’t it? Pep rallies are supposed to encourage school spirit and cheer members of the sports team towards victory. Well, last week, students at Lake Mary High School in Lake Mary, Florida, got a special pep to their rally. Now, most people assume that high school principals are pretty strict. But Dr. Donna Reynolds, aka Mickey, proved to all of her students that she was the embodiment of a cool and hip principal when she joined the rally and starting dancing alongside the students and some of the teachers. Then they brought the house and the internet down!
In fact, that’s how this story began. The Lake Marionettes are Lake Mary High School’s award-winning dance team. The performers knew that cheering and dancing was the best way to encourage their team, who were about to go against the school’s longtime rival, Lake Brantley High.
