Uniform Washing Instructions

For those of you who borrowed uniforms, please follow these washing instructions...

Uniform Washing Instructions

The FIRST WASH is the most important!

Each garment should be washed by itself (wash shell & skirt separately!) in a full tub of cold water (see garment label for water temperature) using the Permanent Press cycle.

Use a mild detergent, without fabric softener. Tide is recommended. Do not use bleach.

If the initial washing instructions are not followed, the colors may bleed onto one another. If this happens, wash the garment AGAIN (before drying), following the instructions above.

ALWAYS remove the garment promptly from the washer once the cycle is completed.

Leaving the garment in the washer for prolonged periods of time can cause the fabrics to bleed and/or leave unsightly wrinkles in the garment.

DO NOT machine dry the uniform.

Once the uniform has been washed, immediately hang it up to dry.
DO NOT dry clean the uniform.

Dry cleaning can yellow the uniform or leave an unsightly sheen. Dry cleaning also causes tackle twill lettering to fade, bubble, or stiffen.
Never use fabric softener or stain removers.

Fabric softeners block the soil release properties (Visa treatment) and can cause dirt and stains to resist removal. If a fabric softener is used, follow the original washing instructions.

Do not use a stain remover. Stain removers may lock the stain into the garment. Do not store wet poms in their plastic bags.

Let them air dry first. This will keep the unpleasant mildew smell from attacking your poms. If you spill a soft drink on your poms, wash them off with mild soap and water and let them air dry.

The following was sent to all cheerleaders and parents in an email. If you are not getting the emails then please let us know!

Parents & Cheerleaders,

We discussed the changes to the cheer schedule at our last practice; however, we wanted to make sure everyone is clear about what is happening this weekend (or what is left of it) and this upcoming week.

There will be no practice on Monday, May 25! Enjoy the holiday!

Tuesday, May 26th
We WILL have practice Tuesday morning at 6:00am.
o Please come in appropriate practice attire; no spaghetti straps or low-cut tops (you will be seen around the school as we get ready for the assembly)
o Please bring your FULL cheer uniform!! (DO NOT wear it to class… EVER!)
o top, skirt
o hot shorts (red for varsity, black for soph & jv)
o shoes (if you do not have your new shoes, please bring an alternate)
o “no-show” socks
o poms
o hair must be pulled back and away from the face
o no gum or jewelry
o trimmed nails
o All cheerleaders will be school excused from 1st period in order to help prepare for the assembly. This means that the new Sophomore cheerleaders will not be going back to the Jr. High before the assembly. If there is a reason (testing, etc) that you must attend class, please let us know.
o Sophomores: After the assembly you need to quickly change into day-time clothing (no practice gear, no uniforms) so that you can catch the bus and ride back to the Jr. High with all the other students.

We are canceling Tuesday’s after-school practice and we will not have any other practice during the last week of school! Practice will resume at 7:00am on Monday, June 15th.

Summer Practices:
Remember, that as of now, summer practices are scheduled from 7:00am – 9:00am. However, this is tentative. Is it very possible that we may not be finished by 9:00am. We may also choose to start earlier if necessary.

Please be aware that we will be running the SF City Recreation Cheer Camp for the little kids June 22nd through the 26th. We will NOT be finished until around 11:00am It will be a fundraiser. We will get your more information as soon as it becomes available.

A reminder: Although you do have four days of vacation to be used at your discretion, these are for PRE-APPROVED vacation absences (not “oops, I slept in.”) and CANNOT be taken during the week of the 24th of July (July 18th- 25th).

Purse Party:
Thanks to everyone for their help. We felt that it was successful and worth our time. Lisa Swenson was generous and decided to donate 15% of the profits instead of 10%. We made $375 which equates to $18.75 per girl. As promised, this money will be used towards day-time uniforms.

Cheer Blog:
Please continue checking the cheer blog for updates and practice videos ( We have added a calendar so that all cheer information is kept in one place. This blog will be private as of June 1st. We will give access to everyone (parents & cheerleaders) via the email address that you have provided. If you have any questions or need any help with this blog, please do not hesitate to ask.

Cheer Payment Reminders:
o For those attending camp your $280 payment was due 3 weeks ago (due May 1st). If you have not paid, please do so ASAP. If you haven’t turned in your receipt, please get it to Wendi.
o The 2nd payment of $200 is by due June 1st.
o If you haven’t ordered a cheer bag and would like one, please get your $40 payment to the financial office ASAP. We will be placing a 2nd order for bags and if you miss the order you’ll have to pay your own shipping fees.

Attached is the master contact list.

Again, thanks for your help and support!
Wendi, Graycee & Meagan

School Song...

Practice, Practice, Practice!

The lighting is not great, but I think it will work.
