It's hot. Record temperatures had already lasted a week when prep-arations began. Band members marched in the parking lot where temperatures were over a hundred. Cheerleaders practiced under trees closer to the school.
Inside, teachers opened up their rooms and prepared for the students. They decorated their rooms and prepared handouts. The office staff had worked all summer getting the forms ready. Now the students were about to come back.

Who's got the spirit?
Just look around and you will see and hear the J.V. Cheerleaders. This is a hard-working, cooperative group of 12 girls who have worked diligently all year. With help of the Varsity Cheerleaders, the J.V.'s have a really learned to "Shout it Out." During Football, Basketball and Wrestling seasons theyput forth great effort in leading cheers to build enthusiasm in the stands.
During The varsity football games, the J.V.'s sold programs and had various money making projects such as car washes and selling shakers, T-shits, key chains and pennants. They reall worked hard to earn money to get new uniforms.
So, if anyone asks you, "Whos got spirit?", you can say the J.V. Cheerleaders have it.
