Charger Girls Update – 9/25-29/27

CHARGER GIRLS, PARENTS AND REPRESENTATIVES,

 

Thank you to those Team Members who cheered their football games vs. Birmingham!

A VERY exciting game

 

PLEASE NOTE :

We understand that when there is a school holiday that it is a temptation to take the day/weekend off too…however…the  Mandatory schedule has been solidified and as a CIF Agoura athlete you have the responsibility to be in attendance…just as the athletes are on the field.

Your team is depending on you!

*In the future…and always, please double check….and…if you are NOT going to be in attendance at a MANDATORYgame/class/performance/competition..etc..PLEASE MAKE SURE that Mrs. Koch is notified asap so that you are NOT placed in a routine as it is INCREDIBLY DIFFICULT to replace anyone thought to be participating

* ALL dates given as student body days off MAY NOT effect the MANDATORY attendance of The Agoura High School Spirit Team!

*Please see the Spirit Team Absence Policy…on the Team website for specifics as it may impact your cheering/sitting out Athletic games/events this season.

 

THANK YOU

*Thank you as well to all of the Spirit Team Members who signed the get well card for Mrs. Koch!

I miss being will you so very much and appreciate your gesture and kind thoughts

I hope to be back on a limited basis soon!

Keep up the good work!

 

GO CHARGERS!

xoxo

Mrs. Koch
