Help me give my students new cheer bows and water bottles so that they don't constantly need water breaks during practice.

My Students

My cheerleading team is made up of 15 1st, 2nd, and 3rd grade girls. These girls attend our Title 1 elementary school and are some of the most hardworking kids I know. They truly have a passion for cheerleading. They love to share their school spirit with their peers and our community. You can find them performing at community events, cheering at our school pep rallies, and even welcoming students in the morning. Their positivity, drive, and school spirit is truly contagious. Many of my girls aspire to cheer when they go to college one day.

My Project

Water bottles would be extremely beneficial to my cheerleaders. Currently my cheerleaders practice twice a week for an hour or so a day. Our practice space does not have a water fountain so my cheerleaders often need to leave practice to go get water. This ultimately cuts into our limited practice time. Having these water bottles would allow us to maximize the time we spend together at practice while ensuring that we are hydrated. The water bottles will also be very beneficial to our team when we are outside practicing in the heat, performing at community events, as well as pep rallies and such.
