Students at Avery's Creek Elementary School want Roberson High to win its football game Friday night, so the students decided to make good luck cards to get the players fired up.

"Why do you think synergizing would be important? We know that's one of our seven habits here at school," Ms. Ballard said to her students.

When you synergize, you work as a team, and Ballards' students know the Roberson Rams have to work together if they want to win. That's why they're writing words of encouragement.

"Touchdown, go Rams. And I have a heart a football, some stars and an emoji," Arabella said.

The third-graders want the Rams to win, but they're also reminding the high schoolers to be kind and respectful.

"I said please work together with others and don't get hurt, we hope you guys win proudly and kindly," third-grader Cindy said. "And then here I said touchdown, and then here I said sportsmanship."

"I drew # 8, which is my player. His name is Shakell. So, he threw the ball to a person in the end zone and he said we won," Hunter said.

The Roberson players, cheerleaders and band members will visit Avery's Creek on Friday afternoon before the big game against North Buncombe.

This is the third year for the pep rally. School leaders said it is a great opportunity for the older students to understand the importance of being good role models.
