There will be a Dance Troupe at St. Mary's this year, and noon hour practices will be starting soon! Mrs. McIsaac will be the coach, even though she is on maternity leave. Their first public presentation will be at the Remembrance Day Ceremony at FVPS, on Nov. 8, 2017. For now, practices will be once a week, at noon hour (on Thursday). Later in the year, there will also be an after school practice.
They are also hoping to perform at the Christmas Concert, and possibly a month end assembly. Later in the school year they will have a Dance Showcase.
Cheerleading Club 2017-18
St. Mary's will have a Cheerleading Club this year, coached by Mrs. McIsaac, even though she is on maternity leave. Practices will be after school one day a week (TBD - probably Monday). Practices will start sometime in October. A note will be sent home to the parents of grades 4, 5 and 6 students who are interested.
Beside the athleticism required to do the stunts, there is a large focus on team work. Participants are expected to dedicate their time to practice schedules and support and encourage each other.
We are very proud of our cheerleaders and look forward to an exciting year! Go Huskies!
