Merritt Island High School Cheer Squad field trip to Charlotte, North Carolina

Members of the Merritt Island High School Cheer squad are requesting permission to attend and perform in the Dr. Pepper ACC Championship game in the Carolina Panthers stadium in Charlotte, NC on December 5, 2015.  This is the fourth consecutive year that the cheerleaders have performed as part of a combined group made up of schools from around the nation under the direction of World Stride Performance Program.  This group of girls have also performed for two years at the University of Central Florida halftime show.  They will be under the direction of Universal Cheerleading Association Varsity Spirit.  The two chaperones traveling with the group are both Brevard County School Board employees.  One is a teacher at Tropical Elementary School and the other is a certified substitute and both are properly fingerprinted with the District.  The cheerleaders will travel to and within Charlotte, North Caroline by private vehicles driven by the chaperones.  The students will be staying at a local hotel, Marriott Renaissance Suites in Charlotte, North Carolina.  The trip will be funded by the parents.  There will be no cost to the District.  There will be no school days missed.
