girls will be working.

Below is the schedule of teams and who is assigned to each team.

The girls need to meet Coach Mulkey and Coach Johnson in the commons area
at 6:45pm. They need to eat dinner before the come to school. They need to
wear their skort outfit and white bow.. (Bring warm-up suit in case it is
chilly.) They should be finished by the end of the 3rd quarter. Once they
are finished, they can stay at the game or they can leave at that time.
Parents just need to make sure they arrange for their daughter to get home.

Be sure to read the directions on the assignments document. Do not have
out your cell phone while you are with your GAA Team. Remember that you
represent Grayson Cheerleading when you are in your skort outfit. Be a
role model for the GAA girls.
