Newcomerstown Middle School staff and students had its first pep rally of the new school year on Wednesday, Sept. 11 to introduce and recognize the members of all our NMS sports teams, including cheerleaders and marching band members. The pep rally was also held to help rally support and pump up our volleyball and football teams, who both had games that evening against Sandy Valley and Ridgewood, respectively. Here, Mr. Peoples, principal, encourages students to get louder, to make some noise ... "I can't hear youuuuuuu!"
