Hello! My name is Sara Vorderkunz and I am the current Ennis Junior High Cheer Coach. I have
been in education for 13 years and spent 6 years of that as a cheer coach. Prior to teaching, I was a
cheerleader throughout my high school career and continued coaching while attending college.
We are offering a cheerleading class to girls in grades 4-8 who want to know more about
cheerleading. The class will entail warm-up exercises, motions, technique, voice projection, jumps,
learning chants & cheers, an extreme routine (cheer, dance, jumping, tumbling in one) and an
opportunity for tumbling.
The five week class begins on January 25th and goes through February 22nd with a performance
on February 27th at SOKOL’s Annual Exhibition. We will offer classes based on number of enrollment as
follows (class times maybe adjusted):
Grades 4-5 ---- 5:30-7:00 Grades 6-8----7:00-8:30.
The cost of the class is $80 and there will be an additional fee for any student not picked up on
time. Registration ends Friday, January 21st. You can register at SOKOL on Mondays from 7:00-8:00 or
Thursdays 6:00-8:00 (side entrance) or to request an application email Sara.Vorderkunz@ennis.k12.tx.us
