High School Cheerleading
Cheerleading, offered at each of our MISD middle school and high school campuses, is an activity designed to develop a sense of good sportsmanship among students and to promote positive school spirit within the student body.
The Cheer/Mascot Constitution
The high school cheer program, governed by the district's cheer and mascot constitution, begins with a series of orientation meetings followed by the submission of required documentation at the district and campus level by noted deadlines. Review the Mansfield ISD cheer/mascot constitution.
Parent Meetings / Clinics & Tryouts
Parent informational meetings are held annually to discuss major aspects of the cheer program. While attendance at these meetings is not required, it is strongly encouraged as meetings also cover the application and tryout process and address common questions about the program.
