Sierra Vista’s Enchanting Harry Potter-Themed Assembly Casts a Spell on Students

Sierra Vista’s Enchanting Harry Potter-Themed Assembly Casts a Spell on Students

On Friday, August 25, Sierra Vista High School students stepped into the Welcome Back Assembly. Students were greeted with Hogwarts-inspired decor, and sounds of mystical chimes of the Wizarding Worlds of Harry Potter. In a grand display of creativity and unity, Student Council worked diligently to make the magic of this school year’s theme come to life. 

Hosted by seniors Melanie Radan and Sienna Nepa, the assembly began with our very own choir singing the National Anthem with JROTC’s presentation of colors, followed by the band, color guard, and cheer performing “Fight Song.” Shortly after, Vista’s wicked choir made another appearance to sing a Hogwarts classic, “Double Trouble.” Then staff Mrs. Mills, Mrs. Phillips, Mr. Brown, and Mr. Padilla brought their best voices to the floor and played a hilarious game of Finish The Lyrics. The new and improved Synergy dancing team continued the show by bringing their magic to the dance floor. Mr. Miller passed down the SVHS Staff Rocks Award to Mr. Gibson in recognition of his hard work with Student Council and his dedication to the school and students. 

One of the assembly’s most magical moments was the competitive game of Quidditch, a contest to score points by getting the Quaffle, a red ball, through one of the three goal hoops on the opposing team’s side. Audience members sat on the edge of their seats watching athletes volunteer to take flight on their broomsticks, competing in a friendly battle of wits. A crowd favorite, varsity football player, Taiten Olive had the entire gym roaring when he did the splits during the Quidditch game. The assembly concluded with a performance of their original song “Gone Away” by the SV Beats group, known as “Tayven Stipp & Friends!” The new assistant principal Jamie Galloway expressed her joy at the success of the assembly, stating, “I thought it was great! I love that the staff was included. Ms. Phillips killed it with her singing.” The first-ever Harry Potter-themed assembly at Sierra Vista was undeniably a resounding success, and it could not have been done without  Student Council.
