Wildcat Cheerleaders

Arkansas Elementary School has begun a new morning ritual to lift school spirit. The Wildcat cheerleaders gather everyone together and lead the students and staff in a morning cheer.

In addition to the new cheer, students participate in the morning announcements, earn ROAR tickets for good behavior and wear their ROAR shirts on Fridays.

“Kids are having a ball,” exclaimed Arkansas teacher Michelle Wilson.

"I enjoy teaching cheer as it is a great way to introduce being a team player at such as young age"  Says cheer coach Sarah Bennett
