MMS Jacket Buzz

October Edition Part 2

Jacket Pride

Each year the MMS student body looks forward to one of the best pep rallies of the year, the boy cheerleader pep rally. On October 9, 2014 we had the boys' pep rally. Basically the concept of the pep rally is the cheerleaders pick a boy to be their cheerleader. The boys get to do a dance and 2 cheers. One cheer by themselves and one with the girls. The guys wear one of the girls’ uniforms and the cheerleaders wear the boys’ football jersey. The girls also put makeup on the boys. The event is really fun for all! Peyton Hass won the competition, because he had the ‘best’ makeup on. Ally Perkins did his makeup. Also, 6th grade won the victory yell for that week's pep rally.

Coach Hawkin’s last place to coach was with the Little Dribblers in Lindale. Coach Hawkin’s goal at the beginning of the year was to make every girl that plays volleyball better than when they started. He said that the teams have accomplished that goal. The goal now is to win district.
