About The Event

WAVE is presenting its high school's first ever OBR Rally! During lunch periods, students, staff and faculty will be invited in to the main gym to see students, staff, faculty and community members give statements explaining why they rise. After this, there will be a performance of the Break the Chain dance performed by members of WAVE, local college students, community members and other students/staff. We have created a display case and posters to advertise the event. Students and staff with also be encouraged to sign the pledge all week. We aim to beat the 571 signatures that we got last year!
