Bringing important academic and extracurricular information to Lodi Middle School campus, Tokay High School students donned purple attire and smiles as they engaged the future Tiger class of 2017.

The “To Tokay and Beyond” rally was the brain child of Tokay teacher Matt Huiras, Tokay vice principal Martha Dent and Lodi Middle principal Scott McGregor.

“We wanted to highlight the programs that (students) might not know about and get them excited to be involved,” Huiras said. “Parent night is tomorrow night and we hope that the students go home and tell their parents to find out even more about the clubs from the advisors, who will be present.”

Parent night is an informational meeting that Tokay hosts for current 8th grade parents.

At yesterday’s event during school hours, FFA students brought along furry friends to entice interest. The band put on a concert. The conflict mediators performed a skit on how campus issues are diffused by their group. Cheerleaders cheered. The choir sang. Educational information could be found from corner to corner in the quad of Lodi Middle School.

“We are here to tell them about French class and our club. Hopefully they’ll decide to take French and join after hearing about our activities,” French Club member Caleigh Ryan said.

The student response of learning something new about Tokay was universal.

“There are a lot of activities that I didn’t know about, not just sports and band,” Lodi Middle student Alberto Castro said.
