"Preparing . . . Peppy . . . Pooped.  These describe the story of this year's cheerleading team, led by Captain, Ellen Meinke.  Hours of preparation and practice went into perfecting new cheers and touching up on the old ones.  To learn new and proper techniques, the team attended a clinic for cheerleading at Spring Lake Park High School.

Pep fests were conducted to heighten school spirit for a game and to teach the new cheers to the student body.

This squad of lively Teddies cheered, screamed, and worked until they were pooped.  Victory was great but defeat couldn't dampen their pep and enthusiasm."

                  Here's a cheer for the 50th reunion!  Remember this one?                  
                  ISH BIDDLEY

"Ish biddley oten doten, bobo si deeton doton,
hacha, racha, ricka chicka rah rah,
sis boom ba, sis boom ba,
Roosevelt High School,
rah rah rah!"


Three more cheers:
"Push 'em back, push 'em back, waaay back!   Push 'em back, push 'em back, waaay back!
 Push 'em back, push 'em back, waaay back!"
 
                 
                 

“We are the Teddies, mighty, mighty Teddies.  Everywhere we go, People want to know, Who we are, So we tell them.
We are the Teddies, mighty, mighty Teddies ...”

"Two bits, four bits, six bits, a dollar
All for Roosevelt stand up and holler!"
