Spirit Team, Parents and Representatives,

Congratulations to The Spirit Team Members for a fabulous Pre-Camp performance for family and friends at their Dress Rehearsal 7/23!

You’re looking good

Thanks go out to parent volunteers Mrs. Olivares and Mrs. Sutter for all of their hard work on the terrific Directory!

Unfortunately, if the personal information was not received as requested, your specific information is incomplete.

* If this Team expects to be successful at Camp and throughout the year, each Team Member MUST make it a priority to be in attendance.

 

*Please note: If you are not in practice/class, you risk being replaced in a routine, performance, game or competition during the year as the entire Team depends so greatly on each other.
