  • Email your order to Coach Uhrle by Monday at 5pm.  Submit payment payable to JLC at practice on Tuesday.

HOLIDAY FRIENDS CATALOG FUNDRAISER

  • August 18th through September 8th.  
  • Catalog type fundraiser with various items (gift wrapping, jewelry, magazine subscriptions, food, etc).
  • Profit margin is based upon total number of items sold the program sells.  If all participants sell 99 items or less, we will earn 20% profit.  If all participants sell 100 items or more, profit doubles to 40% profit.
  • Vendor guarantees delivery by September 30th.
  • Catalogs will be distributed at practice on Tuesday, August 18th.


CHEER SHOES ARE IN!
  • Cheer shoes for those that placed orders with Coach will be distributed at practice on Tuesday, August 19th.

UNIFORM DISTRIBUTION
  • Uniforms will be distributed at my home on Saturday, August 30th according to the following schedule:
    • A Squad:  8 - 9am
    • B Squad:  9:30 - 10:30am
    • C Squad:  11am - noon
    • D Squad: 12:30 - 1:30pm
  • You will be able to pick up your shell, skirt, body liner, briefs, and hair ribbon during your squad's timeslot.  I anticipate the black body liners will be available to be picked up on the 30th as well for those families that ordered the black body liner.
  • As a reminder, uniforms will not be distributed without your $150 uniform deposit.  The uniform deposit is kept in case the uniform is lost, altered, or damaged in any way.  If you return the uniform in very good condition, your uniform deposit check will be returned to you.

FOOTBALL SPIRIT SQUAD MEDIA DAY
  • Team and individual photos will be taken on Tuesday, September 2nd at Tonawanda Elementary.  I am still confirming times with our photographer, but you can anticipate the first team to start photos at 5:30pm.  
  • More information will be shared as it becomes available. 


UPDATE ON SCHOOL YEAR FOOTBALL PRACTICES
  • Coach Lexi and Reagan have committed to coaching all football spirit squads on Mondays in September and October.  Practices will be from 6:15 - 7pm and will be held at Tonawanda Elementary School.  
  • While the school year football spirit squad practices are optional and not mandatory, I do ask that you notify me of any absences so we can plan our spirit squad practices accordingly.
  • FYI, the football spirit squad practices coincide with Sapphire team practices.  Sapphire team members are expected to attend their competitive team practice on Mondays.

THANK YOU!
  • Thank you so much for all that you do!  The summer has flown by so quickly, and the girls have progressed so much since the start of the season.  
  • To my knowledge, A B & C Squads now know their full halftime choreography, and D squad has been working very diligently to learn their routine.  
  • Football season is one of my favorite times of the year, and I can't wait to cheer on our girls and the Jr Lancer football players in just a few short weeks!
