Remember that we have practice on Wednesday, November 13th after school from 3:45-4:45. We'll be learning basketball cheers as well as the Hip Hop Dance (all are on the video section, so please review before coming to practice on Wednesday).
On Thursday, November 14th, we will be cheering for the 8th Grade Girls A Team basketball game against Gorzycki. We'll have Study Hall after school in Coach Malone's room, and we'll cheer at the game from 5:30-6:30pm.
We will have a mandatory parent meeting on Monday, December 16th from 5:30-6:30 in the O.Henry Library. This meeting is very important as we will be going over important information for basketball season and beyond. Please mark your calendars now.
Our last playoff game will be on Tuesday, November 5th at 5:30 and House Park. We'll be cheering on the 7th grade A team as they play Kealing. We'll have Study Hall after school in Coach Malone's room, and the bus will leave at 4:30 sharp (basketball girls, make sure you're in Coach Malone's room by 4:15 at the latest). Since we're only cheering for one game, you'll need to sign your girls out at 6:15pm at House Park; the bus will be leaving the stadium at 6:30pm, so you could pick up your girl from O.Henry at 6:45pm.
Congrats to those girls who are re-eligible. Remember that all eligible cheerleaders will wear their uniforms on Tuesday to school.
Let's have a great last game, ladies!
Here are a few things we'd like to update you about:
Last Football Game!!!! As of now, we're cheering on Tuesday, November 5th (we'll let you know asap if this changes). Hopefully all of our team will be back for our last football game. The coaches will talk to those girls who may still be ineligible.
Cheer Practice: No practice for October 30th and November 6th. Enjoy the break! Our next (and last of the semester) practice will be on November 13th. We'll be learning a new dance and important basketball cheers and formations, so you MUST be there. You can go ahead and start learning the Hip Hop dance (from camp) and the basketball cheers. They are now on the video page.
Girls Basketball Game: We will cheer for the 8th Grade Girls A Team on Thursday, November 14th. We'll stay after school for study hall, and we'll cheer for the first game. If you are a basketball player, you obviously will not be cheering with us; allow us to cheer for you!
Boys Basketball Games: We will practice the FIRST Wednesday we come back from the holidays and we will have our first boys game the next day (the FIRST Thursday back from the break). Please consult your calendars to make sure you have all the correct dates.
Austin High Basketball Game: The AHS Cheerleaders had so much fun with us that they've invited us to cheer at a basketball game with them. We'll know more details soon.
GRADES: Please be mindful of your grades. If you fail for the Third Six Weeks, you will be ineligible for most of basketball season. We'd love to have our whole squad back with us! Go to tutorials, do extra credit,
Okay, it's that time of year! We found out on Thursday evening that the first playoff game is on Monday. That's some short notice, we know, but hopefully you had Monday and Tuesday blocked off as our calendar suggested. Both the 7th and 8th grade A Teams play at Nelson Field (next to Reagan High School) at 5:30 and 7:00pm. We will have study hall after school in Coach Malone's room (if you have tutorials with another teacher, check in with the coaches first). The bus will pick us up at 4:30. Because the game is farther away, the bus will leave the stadium at 8:00pm. Please sign out with us at 8:00pm or pick your cheerleader up at the school at 8:30pm.
We will have one more game the following week, either November 4th or 5th, depending on whether we win or lose this Monday's games. We will know by Wednesday, October 30th, so please check your
