The North Hills High School girls volleyball team was introduced during a pep rally at Martorelli Stadium in August. The event's popularity prompted district officials to hold a pep rally on Dec. 1 to help build excitement for the winter sports season.

The North Hills School District is drumming up support for its spring sports teams with a community pep rally at 7 p.m. on Monday, March 12 at the middle school annex gym.

The varsity track, lacrosse, softball, baseball and the boys' tennis and volleyball teams will be introduced. The event also will feature a special performance by the North Hills Marching Band as they prepare to compete at Walt Disney World in late March.

Admission is free, but items are being collected for the district's Pantry and Backpack Initiative programs.

The most needed items are single serving and individually packaged food including oatmeal, pudding, crackers, fruit cups, cereals, granola and cereal bars, hearty soups, canned pasta meals, tuna and boxed macaroni and cheese.

Toiletries such deodorant, acne- and facial-care products, soap and body wash, laundry detergent, lip balm and dental-care items also are needed.

All who attend the event will receive a promotional item while supplies last.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
