BKW varsity cheerleaders qualify for national competition

Congratulations to the BKW Varsity Cheerleaders, which is the first team from our district to qualify for the National High School Cheerleading Championships in Orlando, FL.  The competition will be held on February 10, 2013 and the team is already hard at work on their routine and at fundraising for travel to the competition.  It will take at least $7,000 to send the cheerleaders to nationals, and they are holding a few fundraisers this month. Please help them get to Florida!

On Sunday, Dec. 16, the cheerleaders will host a Pancake Breakfast Fundraiser at the Knox Fire House from 8 a.m.-12 p.m.  Santa will be visiting, there will be crafts for kids and raffles for gift cards, Great Escape passes and more!  See one of the Varsity Cheerleaders or contact Coach Allen at or 221-4027 to reserve your seat!  Suggested donation is $5.00 per ticket.

The cheer team is also collecting bottles or cans. If you would like to donate any, please let us know and we can arrange a pick up over winter vacation.  Also, the Hannaford in Guilderland has made them the organization of the month for bottle return donations.  Simply donate your return slip in the drop box!

The cheerleaders are incredibly grateful for the support of the school and community.  If you'd like to learn more about the team, why they want to go to nationals, donate to their trip and follow their progress toward their $7,000 goal, please visit!
