 I was impressed when the girls decided to perform a stunt with their chant during one of the quarter breaks in the boy's game.
Yes, as a matter of fact, we know we need to be louder- but we're working hard and we have the right bricks in place from John Wooden's Pyramid of Success: Industriousness, Loyalty, Cooperation, Enthusiasm, INitiative, Intentness, and Team Spirit! So, we'll work on the other ones we still need, like Condition, Skill, Confidence and Poise. Give us time, we'll get there because we're determined to.

Announcements: All the news that fits

What a ton of things to share with you- First of all, Shout out to Shannon, Jasmine, and Quincey for having the spirit it takes to get up there and cheer alone last Friday night when Brenda, Brittney, Renea and Tiffany were gone. 

Here are a truckload of things to think about or keep in mind:
  • I've got the stockings up in my room. Be sure to stop by to pick up your game evals the day after a game. Feel free to give each other notes, cards, treats or gifts between now an Christmas break. Make sure you get your stocking and take it home on the last day before vacation. That goes for Football cheerleaders too- that's one reason I'm sending you this email too.
  • Cammey, Kayla, Kaitlin, and Brenda- You still need to pay for your sweatshirts. I know money can be tight during the holidays, but I can't sell these to other people because they have your names on them. (Although, Brenda, I'll be glad to give you a discount since I made a mistake with your name.
  • Anyone who hasn't got a sweatshirt but wants one, more are on their way $30 (no names on the back).
  • Brittni K transfered to COU- bad news for us, because now we need a new mascot, but sounds like she gets to play basketball again, which is her heart, so we wish her luck. If anyone knows someone who'd be interested in being mascot, please let me know.
  • Tiffany let me know yesterday that she'd rather not cheer this year after all. I'm trying to talk her out of it, but we'll see what happens. We'll miss her bubbly energy, smile and sense of fun- not to mention her skills and experience, but will try to support her whatever she decides.
  • I've asked Cammey to think about coming back onto cheer with us this season to fill that hole. She's not sure she wants to give up being a fan in the stands- and we totally appreciate how she helps get the the crowd to cheer with us. She wants her friend Maddison McDonough to come out with her, but Maddie's not sure either.
  • Remember we have practice this Thursday Dec. 9
  • Bus time Friday is 4:30 to go to West Harrison
  • Saturday there is a home game, please be there around 5:30, all games start at 6PM- Brittney has volunteered to bring hospitality. Remember, I won't be there, because it's my daughter's birthday party. Paula our "Squad Mom" said that she will be. You can also look to Cammey in the crowd or Drill Coach Sarah Mahoney if you have any problems. 
  • Next Friday, Dec. 17 is our first Pep Rally! Please plan on practicing the Monday and Thursday of that week to get ready.

Monday, December 06, 2010


Please come 5-10 minutes early to the North entrance hallway between the gym & the concessions stand to make sure you don't miss the bus.

TUES- 4:40 PM to Mapleton
FRI- 4:30 PM to Mondamin

  • For those of you who are new, here are the rules:
  • Sit together toward the front, behind the coaches.
  • No sitting with, flirting with, or any other fraternization with boys while in uniform
  • We are always the last on and the last off on the way there. The first ones on but the last ones off on the way home.
  • Try not to be too loud or silly on the way there, their coaches may want them to be focusing (but take your cue from how the players act).
  • Wish the teams good luck before the games.
  • If we lose, try to be somber and respectful on the ride home (again, take your cue from the teams). 
  • If we win, obviously be congratulatory.
  • Please take any trash off of the bus that you create by bringing things on (bottles, chip bags, candy wrappers etc.)

It's a good idea to bring an ipod, homework, a book (with a book light), or like so many people a phone to play with. Try to get something to eat between when school lets out and the bus. Blankets are also an excellent idea considering the temps at night.

Skeleton Crew

Whereas there were more MS cheerleaders than usual, there were far fewer high school cheerleaders than usual. 2 were recovering from State Drill Competition, one was ineligible for grades, and another just plain forgot her uniform. So we were left with Quincey and rookies Jasmine and Shannon. We weren't too loud, but you know, I was proud- because these kids had the courage to stand up there in front of everybody and do the best they could. They stuck with it where others would've skipped out. That show's commitment and guts and that's something to be really proud of.

Shout-outs to former cheerleader Cammey and her buddy Maddie for working from withing the crowd to keep the spirit going and help Jaz, Shan, and Q out.

Another shout-out to the Missouri Valley cheer squad- you guys are LOUD, sharp, and synchronized! Three things all cheer squads should aspire to. Keep up the good work.

MS Squad Grew

What a great turn-out! Lara came back from FB Cheer and Jarlin made it to a game too- in addition to Cathrine, Lexus and Jamie. These girls were LOUD and proud and I was proud of them.
