Community members are gearing up to host pep rallies for students and teachers on Friday, Oct. 4 to mark the completion of the first quarter of the school year for the unified Shelby County Schools district.
The purpose of the School Success Splash, as it's been dubbed, is to bolster community support for public school children and those who teach them.
Groups of volunteer "cheerleaders" carrying pompoms and signs bearing positive messages will gather outside as many schools as possible one hour before the bell rings to show support for students and appreciation for teachers as the academic day begins.
