We need poms! Yes We Do! We've Got Spirit! How About You?

My students need 27 pairs of spirit team pom poms to add some pizzazz to our routines.

My Students

The words energetic, excited, and enthusiastic can all be used to describe the girls on our newly formed school spirit team.

The twenty five girls who make up the spirit team are fourth through eight grade student-athletes who are dedicated to increasing school spirit.

They are positive role models for their peers and help to promote a sense of togetherness in the school community.

My Project

The spirit team has been busy preparing for the start of our first season completing rigorous physical conditioning, learning motions, and perfecting crowd pleasing dance routines and cheers. The addition of poms would really make our motions pop and help the girls to pump up the crowd!

This year is an especially important year for us because we are one of ten new after school organizations that give students something positive to do as they become more well-rounded young individuals.

Please help support us so we can better support the Lancers. Go BIG BLUE!
