LHR Cheerleaders Attend Camp
The LH Rather Junior High Cheerleaders attended cheer camp provided by Cheerleaders from Texas A&M Commerce the week of August 3. They learned new cheers, chants and dances.
Cheerleaders were also taught how to stunt and the importance of spotting and safety for all involved in the stunt. We look forward to watching them grow and learn this year.
The staff at LHR enjoyed a delicious steak luncheon provided by BISD Administrators during inservice week. It was a great meal and a great time enjoying fellowship with campus colleagues and district leaders.
