Football Game Day

Tuesday is a very long day for your cheerleaders. After 8th period, we will head to the classroom for FLEX (time to check their grades and get some homework done). After FLEX we will have 45 minutes to eat dinner and get ready (make-up, water jug, etc.) and then head out to the game.

We will cheer from 5:00PM -8:15PM, at both the A & B team games. They will have some down time during the games to rest, get a snack, water & use the restroom. The cheerleaders will be released at 8:15PM or when the last game is over (whichever comes first). It is important that you arrive by 8:15 to pick up your cheerleader/mascot.

Forms will be sent home this week to order team dinners. The team dinners are optional, however your cheerleader/mascot must have dinner brought to school by 4:05 if you opt out of a team dinner. These forms and $$$ are due Monday, September 14th by 10:00AM to Coach Wallace.

Giving Back To The Community

Community Service Projects

Back in May I spoke with our officers about their goals and plans for this year. One of the most important goals on their list was giving back to our community. We discussed some ideas and I was blown away by their genuine desire to help and support their team and their community.

Susan G. Komen ~ 5K Run

We have created a team for the Susan G. Komen 5k run on November 15th in downtown Austin, and we would love for everyone in the Four Points community to join in the fight for a cure!

This is a very personal cause for me because my mother passed away from Pancreatic Cancer six years ago. She was able to fight a very aggressive cancer for two and a half years, using medications discovered from breast cancer research. I will always support this research because it gave me an extra two years with my mom.

I will be talking about the race this week during cheer class and all of the special plans we will make for October and #GoPink.

Please check out the link below to sign up to run, sponsor our team, and get more information on the race.

Student Charities - LISD Nurse Bins

Student Charities is a non-profit organization with the objective to provide nutritious food and alleviate hunger in our community through education and connections to community resources. One way this is achieved is by supporting the Leander Independent School District Backpack Program.

The Backpack Program sends backpacks home to families that may not otherwise eat over the weekend. Each backpack contains healthy food that feeds the child over the weekend.

This year Four Points Cheerleaders are holding a food drive to help stock nurses with snacks for those students that arrive at school hungry or otherwise would not have a snack. Please stay tuned for more information to come.

We will begin planning for this fundraiser after our fundraiser on Friday.
