History of the Belles
2. one tradition that I liked was "Day One as a Belle: on the first day of school after the new team is selected, all “new girls” wear their yellow paper bell. During lunch hours, “old girls” will instruct the “new girls” to introduce themselves, to the upperclassmen. The “new girl” will stand on a lunch table and yell at the top of her lungs, “I’m ___, and Ding Dong, I’m a Belle!”"
3. They have only had 4 directors for the Belles and one director was with the team for 22 years.
4. The highland Belles have scholarships that they could give the girls on there team.
5. Many of there directors were either on a previous team and/or directed another drill team.
