Cheerleading squads from all Katy ISD high schools will host the districtâ€™s first ever Cheer for Charity Showcase, benefiting childrenâ€™s playrooms at Texas Childrenâ€™s Hospital West Campus.Â The event will showcase the skills and talents of JV and Varsity squads, as well as mixed squad cheer routines â€“ all taking place on Tuesday, March 22, 6:30 p.m. at the Leonard E. Merrell Center.Â Â Tickets are $2 and can be purchase from members of any Katy ISD high school cheerleading squad.
â€œThis event will showcase these studentsâ€™ talents, in an event that is not focused on competition,â€ says Amy McConnell, Cinco Ranch High School teacher and Varsity Cheerleader Sponsor.Â â€œThe evidence of school spirit from our cheerleaders is contagious you walk the halls of any of the six high schools in Katy ISD.â€
This event is a collaborative effort of all squads and cheer coaches.Â Coaches and cheerleaders both assisted in selecting the charity for this year, and all team routines have been developed by cheerleaders and their coaches.
â€œWe hope everyone who attends this event is inspired by the athletes who spend most of their time on the sidelines impacting the events on the field, the court and the campus,â€ says McConnell
