The staff tried tarping the chip in the past to keep it dry, but snow pried on the tarp made it unmanageable. Getusky had spent the day before touring Cascade, Garden Valley, Garden City, Boise and Nampa Iooklng for next year's chips. "when you have a good chip it will create a crust on the pile and the water will slough off," explained Getusky. "It all comes down to the quality of the chip." Jenevieve Byers and student Catilln Hill proposed reinstating cheerleading. Because of budget cuts, the cheefteading squad has had to be eliminated. Mrs. Byers is volunteering to form a cheerleading group that would be self-sustaining with little or no school funding. The board voted in favor, and designated Mr. Howe as the supervisor. The group will start practicing, but will not cheer any games until next school year.
