Winter Formal is the main fundraiser for the TPHS cheer teams. Parents of the cheerleaders have been planning this event for several months with input and help from the cheerleaders. The varsity cheerleaders voted on this year’s “Fire & Ice” theme for Winter Formal. To kick-off preparations for the dance, cheerleaders handed out “Save the Date” icicle candies to students the past several weeks. Cheerleaders are also helping make decorations for the dance and sell tickets. TPHS Cheerleaders and parents have been working hard to make Fire & Ice the most exciting Winter Formal yet.
