LAWRENCEVILLE - Hundreds of families from the Mountain View cluster attended a community pep rally Thursday evening at the high school's stadium.
The event, designed to build unity in the cluster, allowed attendees to play games and purchase spiritwear before the pep rally.
Marilyn Como, co-president of the Mountain View High School PTSA, said it's important to bring the schools together and start building the Mountain View cluster as its own distinct area. With the support of the schools, the principals and the PTAs, the pep rally allowed all age groups to come together.
Mountain View High principal Keith Chaney said the cluster already has incredible community support.
"We're creating a community and creating that culture of success and excellence," he said.
Mountain View High freshman Brooke Como said she thought it was great so many people showed up at the pep rally.
"I'm really excited about this year," she said. "I think this year is going to be really good."
Lakethia Bragg, whose daughters attend Woodward Mill Elementary and Twin Rivers Middle, said she moved to Lawrenceville three weeks ago.
"I love the new schools," she said. "I can't wait for them to come here (to the high school)."
