This year, Westford Academy administration made the controversial ban of all student made signs during the pep rally on October 23. video after jump.

The signs have always been a tradition of Westford Academy pep rallies. They boost inter-class competition and upperclassman dominance by mocking the scandals and embarrassing antics of other grades – usually freshmen.

However, this year, administration decided to take a stand against such signs that they have always deemed offensive. For the first time, no student made signs were allowed out onto the football field during this year’s pep rally.

Students were angry about the change, though. The general consensus was that signs made the pep rally better and should have been allowed.
