My Students

Our school’s flag team began just a few years ago. The team this year is made up of eleven girls (one freshman, two sophomores, four juniors, and four seniors) who have worked so hard to hone their skills and improve their performance technique. The co-captains, both seniors this year, write much of their own choreography, and this team has learned to operate extremely well together.

These young ladies bring life to our school.

They are full to overflowing with school spirit and bring it out in the rest of our student body. They truly live by our school motto: work hard, live pure, lead with courage, honor the team. It is not uncommon for the student body to give the flag team a standing ovation BEFORE they perform. They are so loved.

My Project

These girls bring so much energy and spirit to school functions, and their student body loves them. Despite some struggles that would challenge most adults, this team has pulled together, worked hard, and formed a very strong bond.

They have trained hard and have achieved the skills necessary to compete at USA Spirit Nationals this year.

Attending the competition would serve to pull the team even closer together. The judging will give them specific areas to strive to improve. Attending would allow them to watch and learn from more advanced teams and inspire them to continue to develop while still maintaining their own unique style.
