Cheer is pretty much a year round sport.We perform in the 4th of July parade. In the summer we have Cheer camp. We cheer at football, boys basketball and girls basketball and try to attend all home events including volleyball, soccer, and wrestling. We are very fortunate to have cheer as a class, so it cuts down on practice outside of class. We compete in district competition and hopefully state competition.
Chess Club is new to Teton High School this year, and has been a success. We compete in Jackson, Pocatello, and even in Boise for the State Championship.
