Surprise pep rally excites Washington Academy students


It's not every day students cheer at school. But Thursday was no ordinary day at Washington Academy.

Students had no idea a pep rally was on the agenda when they came to school. The rally was to help promote the school's race for education fundraiser. Prizes were given out and students are getting excited for the competition.

On Friday, November 1, Washington Academy will have its first "Race for Education." It will raise funds to purchase 90 iPad Mini's, which will bring the latest technology and applications to our classrooms and will be used by Washington students starting this school year.
