About PTHS Cheerleading
Cheerleaders exist to promote SCHOOL SPIRIT and good sportsmanship. They are among the most recognized representatives of PTHS. Members of our squad have a fundamental responsibility to play a leadership role in building teamwork and helping the school achieve its goals and objectives. Because of these responsibilities, members of the cheerleading squad will be expected to maintain a higher standard of behavior than that of their peers, both on and off campus. Their academic achievement must meet passing expectations regardless of their demanding extracurricular schedule Tryouts are traditionally held on the Friday before Spring Break. Cheerleaders do not have an “off season” and are committed for an entire year from March to March.
2018 – 2019 Core Values
Our squad worked to define the values that we strive to emulate. We sometimes fall short, but we will keep our eyes and hearts set upon the following ideals:
We will dedicate ourselves to our team and our school. We refuse to accept partial effort from ourselves or our teammates. We will help each other be accountable.
We will strive together for the best for our team. We will take care of our teammates and defend each other as we would want them to defend us. We will look for the best in each other but when we find fault, we will talk about it and come to a peaceful resolution.
We will live up to our name and be the leaders we were meant to be. We will hold ourselves to higher standards of Honesty and Responsibility than the average person. We will set a good example and build our team to elite status for future generations.
We will treat everyone with kindness and compassion. We will lead through service. We will do what it takes to make everyone feel like they belong at PTHS.
We will passionately encourage all Pirates to be their best. We will exhibit good sportsmanship. We will promote positivity and fun for our team and our school.
