Spirit Team 18-19 Update 10/14/18

Dear Parents, Athletes, and Representatives,

 

This past Friday was our last home game of the season (besides the possibility of play-offs), as well Senior Night, during which our wonderful seniors were recognized. The Spirit Team’s halftime performance was once again incredible, and finished off our “perfect record” of “hitting” each and every halftime routine!! Huge congratulations to all! We are so very proud of you, and can’t wait to see the other successes that are sure to be in store!

 

The Spirit Team also did a fantastic job representing their team, school, and community during the Reyes Adobe Days Parade! Great job ladies and stuntman!

 

*Please see the email sent yesterday (10/13) regarding the upcoming Service Learning Opportunity: the Cystic Fibrosis Walk on 10/21.

 

*As a reminder, please send all individual correspondence to coachemilycostas@gmail.com. Thank you in advance!

 

*This Tuesday during lunch in room E-3, the Spirit Team will hold a Leadership Meeting. Leadership Meetings are held approximately once a month, and are open to ALL team members who wish to learn leadership skills, have opportunities to be a part of the decision making processes of this year’s team, etc. Regular attendance of leadership meetings is a requirement for current captains, as well as for those who wish to run for a captain’s position next year!

 

*This Tuesday, October 16th, at 3:15 pm, the Spirit Team will take our team photo for the yearbook. All athletes will change into uniform during class and will be dismissed as soon as we finish (approximately 3:45 pm).

 

REMINDER: In an effort to provide each group with more individual attention, and due to facility shortages, the Spirit Team will need to slightly adjust our practice schedule/locations. Starting THIS Monday, October 15th, our regular practice schedule will be as follows:

 

MONDAYS: 

Cheer: 3:00-5:00, Gym

THURSDAYS: (No time changes, only locations)

Song: 5:00-6:30, Multipurpose Room

 

Thank you in advance for adjusting as needed, and for your understanding!
