All girls in 5th grade are eligible to be in the Pep Squad, which sits together and cheers at some home basketball games. Girls in 6th-8th grades may try out for the middle school cheer team; no prior experience is required. Cheerleaders attend camp in the summer and practice one afternoon per week. Because many cheerleaders also play basketball, they will cheer for a limited number of girls games and most boys games. Cheerleaders also perform at four to six pep rallies per year.
