Bring the BOOM!

My students need Alphasonik speakers to pump up the crowd at pep rallys and games. We also need the stunt stand to help our flyers reach new heights!

My Students

My cheerleaders are our community spirit leaders. They are the face of the school for all sporting functions and events. They work collectively and enthusiastically to improve campus and community climate. So many people fail to recognize that cheer is a sport and these girls do their very best to fight through that stigma. Cheer is, in fact, one of the most demanding sports both on the mind and body.

We are a Title I school so funds for a lot of necessities just aren't feasible.

These cheerleaders rise above all of the negativity that surrounds them and work through sweat and injuries to put on a good show every Friday night. They become a family who supports one another and others around them, and for that, I believe they should have the tools they need to be successful.

My Project

We plan to use the speakers to liven up the crowd at all games and performances. Having a sound system at games will allow us to use new and fresh music for new dynamic routines that will help hype up the crowd.

Flyers will reach new heights after practicing with their new stunt stand.

It will help them develop the skills they need to be successful flyers with their stunt groups.

Every item we have listed will be used and maxed out to its fullest potential. We want to help unify our team and community by setting the best example of school spirit that we can create.
