Each year, Boosterthon teachers create a team nickname for their class. It helps set the week apart, makes our program more exciting, and unites classes together under a new, voted name. Sometimes the names rhyme, sometimes they use alliteration (“Peter’s Penguins”) and sometimes they’re just plain wacky (“Jensen's Jabberwocky Raisins”).

But this year's Rock'n Town Live theme, teachers have started a new trend in class naming: they’re basing them off REAL band names.

Here are a few rock’n class nicknames we’ve seen (band name translations provided):

RHCP

"Red Hot Chili Peppers"

Counting Crutes

"Counting Crows"

Snoop

"Snoop Doggy Dogg"

Black Eyed Peas

"Well, um . . . 'The Black Eyed Peas'"

So, Boosterthon teachers, if you create a fun, rock-infused class name, we'd love to hear it! Simply post a picture on our Facebook page. Thanks for being such a big part of the fun during our program.
