Turkey Drive

Attention everyone! Key Club is hosting its annual Turkey drive for the

Members will be around school raising money for their
goals, so please donate if you see a member.

Where does the money go?

Once we've collected everyone's profits, we use the money to buy Kroger gift

Competitive Cheer

First and foremost, thank you to everyone who came out last week to watch
our rehearsal performance; the girls were a little nervous to perform for
their teachers and peers, but so appreciative to have so many fans!

The team competed at Region this past Saturday and took home 2nd place!
Again, the girls were so grateful and excited to see such a huge crowd in
the stands - thank you to everyone who made the drive.

Since we placed in the top four at Region, we are now headed to Columbus to
compete in the Sectionals competition this Friday. Making it to Columbus is
a huge accomplishment for competitive cheerleading programs, and we are
very proud of these girls and their hard work! If we place in the top eight
on Friday, then we will compete in the State Championship competition on

Thanks again for all of your support!
