Our school is located in a high poverty area. Most of our students are not able to afford to participate in cheerleading outside of school. In our district, middle school cheerleaders are encouraged to cheer at football/basketball games, and pep assemblies. They are not given resources to help them train to be better athletes. In fact, they aren’t even recognized by the athletic department. The cheerleaders are considered a club and left on their own to fundraise or pay out of pocket what they need each year. This doesn’t stop our young women though. Each year, they learn two routines and compete locally and nationally as a competitive cheer team. They work with choreographers, tumbling, and stunt coaches. They practice every day never giving up to compete at a level most of them would never get the opportunity. They are three-time National Champions despite all of the challenges they face.
These hair bows will help the ladies on the 2018-2019 team complete their uniform for a variety of events this season. We are asking for gold, yellow, pink and white, and red hair bows.
These young women show their school pride by wearing their uniforms on game days and performing at school assemblies.
We are asking for gold bows for competition season. These bows are extra special because of the sparkle that reflects from the overhead lights at competitions. We love dressing up the uniforms for competitions. We are asking for the yellow for game days. We cheer for two different mascots, both using the color gold. We are asking for the pink and white and red hair bows for assemblies we will perform at in front of the student body. These bows really do have some magic power to boost the girl's confidence and help them believe they can do what they set out to do.
