Good Morning! Looks like today is a great day for Football Cheer Team Photos! 11AM at the Turf! Remember you are able to where your hair anyway you would like for your individual pictures, although for your Team photo, hair must be up in a high pony with blue bow. Uniform Care - With our new uniforms we would like to keep them in great condition for years to come. When washing them please wash with cold water and line or lay flat to dry, please do not put these uniforms into the dryer! Thank you. Varisty Comp Practice toinight. We are going to start out with the flyer tryout for the end of the routine. ALL Flyers will have an opporunity to test out each group up to 3 times. Coach Michelle and I will make the desicion tonight and we will start incoorporating the positions tonight. We will then be staying consistant, too many changes can cause rework and delays. Please remember regardless of what position is or is not assigned all postions and all cheerleaders have an important role on this team! With out everyone we would not be a team. Thank you for your time an dedication, let’s keep moving forward with hardwork positive attitudes! Coach Michelle and I appreciate all of you!

Found this on FB this AM Thought it was a powerful reminder to be kind and how much of a difference each of you can make. TOGETHER you can be a Powerful Positive Group TOGETHER! My daughter starts middle school tomorrow. We’ve decorated her locker, bought new uniforms, even surprised her with a new backpack. But tonight just before bed, we did another pre-middle school task that is far more important than the others. I gave her a tube of toothpaste and asked her to squirt it out onto a plate. When she finished, I calmly asked her to put all the toothpaste back in the tube. She began exclaiming things like "But I can’t!" and "It won’t be like it was before!" I quietly waited for her to finish and then said the following: "You will remember this plate of toothpaste for the rest of your life. Your words have the power of life or death. As you go into middle school, you are about to see just how much weight your words carry. You are going to have the opportunity to use your words to hurt, demean, slander and wound others. You are also going to have the opportunity to use your words to heal, encourage, inspire and love others. You will occasionally make the wrong choice; I can think of three times this week I have used my own words carelessly and caused harm. Just like this toothpaste, once the words leave your mouth, you can’t take them back. Use your words carefully, Breonna. When others are misusing their words, guard your words. Make the choice every morning that life-giving words will come out of your mouth. Decide tonight that you are going to be a life-giver in middle school. Be known for your gentleness and compassion. Use your life to give life to a world that so desperately needs it. You will never, ever regret choosing kindness." -MOMof4

Good Morning!!!! Happy Friday! Remember there is no practice tonight!! I would like to rally any cheerleader/cheer parent that would like to help me and images with designing a Homecoming T-shirt to sell to the student body. I have been working with images to come up with some ideas, although they have all been football strong, I am wondering if we could come up with a Homecoming T that would reflect our entire student body? All ideas are welcome. We are playing Byron for Homecoming this year. My thought are "Border Battle" or "Battle of the Border" with both mascots. Although, the is where my train of thought ends! I know we have some very creative people in our group. I would love to hear ideas! If the spirit moves you please PM or email me nandristcheer@yahoo.com with any ideas! Thank you in advance for your help with this.

Gossip - Filter
Posted: Monday, February 15, 2010

Wed, Nov 25, 2009 PB Online

One day in ancient Greece, an acquaintance met the great philosopher Socrates and said, "Socrates,

do you know what I just heard about your friend?"

"Hold on a minute," Socrates replied. "Before telling me anything, I’d like you to pass a little test.

It’s called the Triple Filter Test."

"Triple Filter?"

"That’s right," Socrates continued. "Before you talk to me about my friend, it might be a good idea to take a moment and

filter what you’re going to say. The first filter is Truth. Have you made absolutely sure that what you are about to tell me is


"No," the man said, "actually I just heard about it and ..."

"All right," said Socrates. "So you don’t really know if it’s true or not. Now let’s try the second filter, the filter of Goodness. Is

what you are about to tell me about my friend something good?"

"No, on the contrary ..."

"So," Socrates continued, "you want to tell me something bad about him, but you’re not certain it’s true. You may still pass

the test though, because there’s one filter left: the filter of Usefulness. Is what you want to tell me about my friend going to be

useful to me?"

"No, not really."

"Well," concluded Socrates, "if what you want to tell me is neither true nor good nor even useful, why tell it to me at all?"

There would be no or little gossip if everyone followed Socrates’ Triple Filter Test. But that is not the case. Gossip runs


It’s no wonder legendary American humorist Erma Bombeck said: "Some say our national pastime is baseball. Not me. It’s


Someone has calculated that, if a rumor was started at midday, and was repeated within two seconds by everyone who heard it

to two other people, who repeated it and kept the cycle going, by about 6:30 p.m. the same day, everyone on Earth would have

heard it.

Of course, the Internet has brought gossiping up to warp speed. A rumor posted online can make it around the world in

milliseconds. And although the post may seem anonymous and, therefore, "safe," the damage is potentially irreparable.

Snopes, the urban legends reference site, can’t debunk everything, after all.

Office gossip in particular is a major concern for a number of reasons. The Triple Filter Test could prevent plenty of

misunderstandings and hard feelings in the workplace, where teamwork and cooperation are often central to productivity.

How does someone work with another who insists on passing along information that may not be true, good or useful?

Spreading rumors about friends or aquaintances can create a hostile environment that customers will pick up on. This is a good reason for

avoiding gossip. Plus the fact that I’ve seen many deals go down, due to gossip.

As advice columnist Dear Abby said, "It is almost impossible to throw dirt on someone without getting a little on yourself."

So clean up your act! The Triple Filter Test is simple to use. Truth alone is not enough reason to spread gossip. Who doesn’t

have an embarrassing truth that they want to remain private? And while good news may seem harmless enough, is it your

news to share? But perhaps the most compelling reason to avoid gossip is the usefulness test. How will the information be

used? I’m betting it won’t be for positive reasons.

Maybe you’ve heard about the three ministers who went fishing. They were good friends, each of whom was a pastor at

different churches in the same town. While they were fishing, they began confessing their sins to each other.

The first pastor said, "Do you know what my big sin is? My big sin is drinking. I know it’s wrong, but every Friday night I

drive to a city where no one will recognize me, and I go to a saloon and get drunk. I know I shouldn’t, but I can’t help it. It’s

my big sin."

The second pastor said, "Well, to be honest with you, I’ve got a big sin, too. My big sin is gambling. As a matter of fact, you

know all the money I raised for that mission trip to India? I took it to Las Vegas instead and lost it all. I’m so ashamed. My big

sin is gambling."

Finally it was the third pastor’s turn. He said, "Guys, I probably should have gone first, because my big sin is gossiping."

All winning teams are goal-orientated. Teams like these win consistently because everyone connected with them concentrates on specific objectives...nothing will distract them from achieving their aims.
