Important Announcements ...
  • Please be sure to familiarize yourself with JLC's cheer constitution.  All families and cheerleaders signed our cheer constitution stating they agree to abide by JLC's policies and procedures, and consequences for violating any JLC policy.  We will begin to strictly enforce all JLC policies and procedures as stated in the JLC cheer constitution effective immediately, and please be aware that there are consequences leading up to suspension and dismissal from the JLC program.
  • Those at Saturday's football game are aware that there were numerous wasps and bees hovering around the bleachers and track.  Upon review of all medical/emergency forms, I have confirmed that there are no cheerleaders with allergies to bee stings.  If this isn't correct, please let me know asap.  Please remind your daughter not to eat food on the track, and to tightly close her water or juice bottle so no wasp/bees get in her drink.
