The Pep Rally is an event designed for students.  To allow for all students to attend, we cannot open the event to Guests.  Please join us at the game to see our Cheerleaders and Dance Company perform.

Note about early pick-up - It is very difficult to find individual students during the Pep Rally.  If you need to pick up your child early, please do so before 2:00 p.m.  

Transportation to the Game for Football, Dance and Cheerleaders
Out players and performers will take an HISD bus on Tuesday from Pin Oak to Delmar.  All members of these teams will ride the bus back from Delmar to Pin Oak and will need to be picked up from Pin Oak.  We cannot release students from Delmar.
