Varsity Cheer: As mentioned in the "Rules and Expectations" in our very first meeting, when getting closer to performance of pep rally / senior night routine, we WILL have practice NEXT Saturday 1/26 from 2-4 in the EWA Gym. A lot of you have asked about a Sunday afternoon practice instead, unfortunately, we are not allowed to practice on Sundays pursuant to NCHSAA rules. This practice will be MANDATORY, as there's no need to hold a practice for the routine if everyone is not there, since everyone is involved in all of the stunts/dances/lineups, etc. This will be the ONLY Saturday practice before the pep rally routine and the ONLY practice in the gym before dress rehearsal on the 30th. NO PRACTICE THIS FRIDAY!
We will possibly be practicing this Friday as well from 4:00-6:00. I will let you know as soon as I can if we are.
Varsity Cheer: We will start having mostly 2-hour practices from now until the peprally on 2/1 (It's only a couple of weeks!!) NO UNEXCUSED ABSENCES FROM PRACTICE!!! THE ONLY EXCUSED ABSENCES FROM PRACTICE WILL BE AN ABSENCE FROM SCHOOL WITH A DOCTOR'S NOTE!!! PLEASE NOTE THE EARLIER START TIME... IF YOU ARE LATE YOU WILL RUN.... A LOT!! :)
Mon: 4:00 - 6:00
Tues: 4:30 - 6:00
Wed: 4:00 - 6:00
Thurs: 4:00 - 6:00
Varsity Cheer: Following is the tentative schedule for January: Please note that as we are preparing for the Pep Rally and Game performances, there will be NO unexcused absences from practice or games. unexcused absences from practice will result in being dismissed from the performances, INCLUDING the NCSU performance in March!! NO EXCEPTIONS! It is a MUST to have everyone attend every practice while preparing for the performances, as we do not have many practices left and A LOT to do! Come to practice ready to work hard! If you all are not being serious at practice and the routine is not able to be performed to perfection by the scheduled dress rehearsal on 1/30, then I WILL cancel the pep rally, senior night games and NCSU performances!
ALSO, PLEASE NOTE: I talked to the team before confirming the NCSU performance in March. It is understood that we will have some additional practice AFTER the last home game on 2/12. We must keep practicing the routine for the NCSU performance in March. Practice will NOT be everyday, but at least an hour maybe 2-3 days per week until the performance just to keep the routine fresh in their minds and bodies.

SO, with that being said, the amount due ASAP is: $59.97. Checks should be payable to "East Wake Academy". Please get those checks to me no later than Friday!!
Athletic Payment: All student-athletes are asked to pay a $100 Booster Fee for first sport played and $50 per following sports played. This fee is used solely to help pay a portion of the costs involved with renting fields/facilities, purchasing equipment, and paying for officials. This can be paid by cash or check. Checks can be made payable to ‘EWA Athletics’ and can be turned in to the Athletic Department or dropped in the lockbox that hangs in the Athletics’ Office. All Booster Fees are tax deductible. We'd like for this to be paid by the first game which is 11/15.
For those who were not able to attend the parent meeting, I will get the "Rules & Expectations" to your child tomorrow at practice to take home and review; sign and return to me. I will have a price for you ASAP for the items being ordered from Omni Cheer. I will send a signup Genius ASAP to sign up for the home games to work concessions. As I mentioned, the schedule changes often, it already has from the one I passed out tonight. The schedule on the Varsity Cheer page has now been updated with only the home games. I need "Rules & Expectations" form and the Uniform Signout Agreement returned from: Nathan Bryant; Gracie Carter and Alyssa Letchworth.
Please bring the $100 Athletic Fee to practice this week or at least by the first home game. Again, make checks for this out to "EWA Athletics"
