Coach Thomas-

The top 2 scores will be named the mascots for this year. Please note that the cardinal suits are away getting cleaned and sanitized and we can not promise when they will be available. If you are selected as the mascot, it might look different than previous years due to the issues the COVID-19 pandemic has created.

Mascots will report to the cheer coach, Ms. Thomas. The mascots will be required to attend 2 practices a week which take place on Monday and Thursday. Mascots will be held to the same exact standards as the cheerleaders. UIL rules will apply and grade checks will happen at time of selection.

If you become the mascot you will need a physical on file and proper paperwork filled out. 

Mascots are required at all games and events required by the cheer coach. 

Dear business owners and parents, 
 First let us say a BIG thank you for all the support you have shown the cheerleading program in the past. This year we are adjusting how we sell ads, due to the current situation. If you would like to have an ad in the upcoming program please fill out the form below.
The form will close at MIDNIGHT on AUGUST 4th. We apologize for the short time frame but we still have to put the program together and send it to the printer before the first game and all that takes time.
Please send payment upon completion of the form. If we have not received payment by Aug 12, your ad will not be printed in the program. Please make checks payable to CHS CHEER and payment can be dropped off at the high school front office or can be mailed to 
103 Cardinal Lane
Columbus, TX 78934
Thank you again for your continued support, GO CARDS!
