Farewell Rally 2024: the End of an Era

Students gathered in the gym on Friday to commemorate the graduating seniors in their final rally, the End of an Era Farewell Rally. As the lights darkened, the classes tumbled through a time machine, all the way back to 2020, the freshman year of the Class of 2024. However, along the way, four valuable possessions were lost: an ID card, a Mario cup, decs from homecoming of a soot sprite and a senior shirt. The crowd was visited by four familiar faces, cameos from previous years such as Zeus and Mario, who returned the lost items.  

“Seeing the rally affect so many people with all the posts and stories about just one event was really nice, like a unifying finale,” senior and ASB spirit commissioner Zayan Azom said. “I’ll miss Lynbrook, but the rally felt like a good sendoff.”

The class themes of Greek Mythologies, Classic Arcade, Studio Ghibli and the Hunger Games were based on the seniors’ past homecoming themes. Decorations such as gigantic balloon arches, posters and fairy lights filled the gym. The rally featured performances from varsity cheer, Valkyries, Jalwa, magic club, boys tennis, co-ed diving and track and field. At the end, Alex Lee and Ayan Chaudhry battled it out for first place in the 2024 senior games. Lee prevailed after deciding to steal Chaudhry’s suitcase, emerging as the victor of this year’s senior games.  

“It was nice to be able to both emcee the rally as well as perform in it through Jalwa and the finals of the senior games,” senior and ASB spirit commissioner Chaudhry said. “I’m proud of the four rallies we made this year, and each one had something special about them, from the creativity of the first ‘Avatar’ one to this sendoff for the seniors.” 

Choir seniors sang the alma matter for the last time, and the Farewell Rally closed with an emotional statement by sophomore Shreya Somani to the graduating seniors of the ASB spirit commission.
