Cheer Camp Raises Spirit

Swiftie and girls

Brooklyn Birkenfeld, Swiftie (Hydie Dyer), and Katy Gerber take a break with refreshments at cheer camp.

School spirit is alive this week at cheer camp. Girls ranging from kindergarten to sixth grade attended the camp, which was hosted by the high school cheerleaders. The camp was from 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. Monday through Wednesday. The girls were split into two groups: “little girls,” which is grades kindergarten through third, and “big girls,” fourth through sixth. Both groups learned a cheer, chant, and dance; the “little girls” being less difficult. These future cheerleaders will perform at the Homecoming pep-rally.

Support the Swifts!

We’ve had a great first week of full pad practice. It’s been a little rough getting used to the pads, but we’ve made tremendous progress by adjusting quickly and getting back to work. We have a great intensity and work atmosphere at practice that allows everybody to keep pushing each other. We are looking forward to traveling to Spur on Friday for our scrimmage at 4 p.m. There will be some good teams there, but we know we can compete well with them. We hope everybody can come watch us and cheer us on as we show off all our hard work early in the season.

College Bound Students Excited

class of 2014

NHS Class of 2014 wearing their class shirts on the first day of their senior year.

This is a critical time in our high school graduates’ life. Many are preparing to go to college. They are deciding majors and contemplating of what they will do with the rest of their lives. Some will be moving to much larger cities such as Lexie Rowland, who is moving to Lubbock, Texas to attend Texas Tech University, and Rebekah VanDijk, who is moving to Arlington to attend the University of Texas. Just making the transition of going from living in the small town of Nazareth to living in an urban area is a challenge in itself. Our community believes that the NHS Class of 2014 will do great things as they walk the road towards their futures.
