Tickets are $8 each and can be used at ANY Mike's Car Wash in Ohio, Kentucky, or Indiana.

Please contact a cheerleader to purchase a few, or email gehscheer@gmail.com and we will make sure some one gets in touch with you. As always thank you for your support of Glen Este and the High School Cheerleaders!


News from the Ohio Department of Education

New High School Graduation Requirements start with the Class of 2018

 

House Bill 487 updated Ohio’s graduation requirements to ensure that all students are ready for success in college and work. As a result, the Class of 2017 (10th-graders in the 2014-2015 school year) will be the last students to take the current Ohio Graduation Tests. The new requirements take effect with the class of 2018 (ninth graders in Fall 2014). Additionally, every student will have the opportunity to take a nationally-recognized college admission exam free of charge in the 11th grade. The honors diploma remains another option for students.

Cheer Camp 2014 GEHS

Attached is our group photo from GEHS Youth Cheer Camp 2014.

The GEHS cheerleaders hosted 60 younger cheer sisters to 3 days of fun and learning. They wrapped Saturday afternoon with each group performing for their friends and families. The GEMS girls were even taught a high school dance that the girls still perform today and has been a GE cheer tradition since 2007. We look forward to sharing our track, under Friday night lights, with these younger ladies when they join us on cheer youth night to help cheer on the GE Trojans!

2014-15 Pay to Participate Fees

Friendly reminder:
Pay to Participate Fees are now $250 per athlete. Athletes playing in two or more sports will not pay more that $500 annually. There is no family cap.

This reduction was made possible because of the $3 million realized from salary and benefit concessions made by employees, districtwide cost-containment, and a small increase in state funding. See RESOLUTION 14-37 – CHANGE 2014-2015 PAY TO PARTICIPATE FEE.
