When it comes to school spirit, it comes in all sizes at Lausanne. Lately, it is the little ones that have been leading the way.
Thursday, Senior Kindergarten (SK) students made Lausanne's Varsity Cheer a banner to wish them good luck in their regional competition this weekend.
"It meant so much to the team knowing they have the love and support from the Lausanne Community," cheerleading coach Kenzie Neel said. "Seeing the younger students support them as they compete for regionals gives them motivation going into their performance this weekend."
This wasn’t the first time the SK students have made spirit signs. Last week, the students made banners and cheered the varsity soccer team as they boarded the bus for their quarterfinal match in Nashville.
“We hung those signs on the fences when we got to the field,” varsity soccer head coach Amy Morrison said.
Just down the hall, Pre-Kindergarten (PK) and Junior Kindergarten (JK) students made a banner for the football team as they prepared to take the field against St. George’s in the final home game of the regular season.
“I love how connected our students are," said Head of Lower School Kara Barbour. "Being a PK-12 grade campus, even our youngest students like to attend the football games and cheer on our Lynx teams. Dressing up on Spirit days and making signs for our teams is a fun way they can still participate.”
Random acts of kindness like the ones shown by our little Lynx is an example of the cross-divisional learning environment at Lausanne and the relationships formed between Lower School students and their older peers.
“In a PK-12 school, our Upper School students have a unique opportunity to be positive role models for the younger grades," shared Head of Upper School Stuart Dunster. "Their behaviors and successes will then hopefully be emulated as our younger students move through the school.”
One thing students across all grades can agree on: it's a great day to be a Lynx!
