Back to School Blastoff brings students together before first football game of the season

ASB hosted a Back to School Blastoff, fully decked out with a bouncy house, dunk tank, and cotton candy cart, to build spirit before MVHS’s first football game versus Kings Academy High School. Dressed in purple and gold to suit the royal theme, students dunked their teachers, played games, and enjoyed the food while hanging out with friends.

What we’re trying to do is build school spirit and build community within the school…I don’t see so many people doing all the activities, but I see people hanging out and that’s that’s what ASB is all about

“We haven’t had like real school for a year and we just wanted to start off strong…Also we have our first home football game right after I think it’s gonna be a lot of fun for everybody to come energized from here and go watch.”
