Parents Page


This page is devoted to helping parents stay up to date on information relating to their children and our program. Events will only be added after we have ALL of the information and everything is finalized. While we will try to keep this page as up to date as can be possible, please remember that the best way to get reliable information is to come into the gym on a regular basis and talk with your child's instructor. We hope that this page helps with some of the overwhelming info, though! If you have any ideas on additional fundraisers, please talk to Sheryl or Amy, or you can email us!


 

Be sure to be aware of the updated news board inside the gym. It will have more information than the site has, especially regarding money and due dates.

Keep your eyes peeled for information regarding the  following fundraisers for the BDAS cheer teams:

 

Mississippi's Biggest Garage Sale- Everyone will donate items to be sold in this huge, one of a kind, rummage sale! We will also need tables chairs, signs, set up/take down committees.  Rained out- will be rescheduled.

 

Bake Sales- Several locations will be set up on the same day. Everyone will need to bake at least 1-2 dozen of their favorite cookies, brownies, cake slices, etc. All items must be pre-wrapped and labeled.

 

Sponsorship Days- Members will be teamed with cheerleaders and parents from each squad, and given a list of businesses to go to and ask for sponsorships. We will also need a follow up committee mail or call businesses requiring additional information or send thank-you items to those who decide to sponsor the BDAS program.

First Sponsorship day has raised over $1,000!!! 

More money is still coming in!

chaperone, etc.

 

North Mississippi Magnolia Invitational- Tentatively scheduled for Saturday, December 8th, at Hernando High School. All parents and squad members will be assigned a job and required to participate. This is the program's largest fundraiser of the year, so member support is a MUST!
