St. Theresa Middle’s cheerleading squads promote and uphold school spirit, promote good sportsmanship, and lead spectators in cheering at basketball games, football games, and pep rallies. In addition to cheering, responsibilities also include planning pep rallies, sponsoring a fundraiser each year, and sponsoring the yearly “Hour of Prayer” meditation service held at St. Theresa of Avila Church.
St. Theresa has two cheerleading squads and students in grades 6th-8th may participate. The cheerleading season runs September through February. Tryouts are held in the spring of the previous year. Students must have a 2.0 GPA and B or higher in conduct from the previous quarter in order to try out.
