Student Involvement is Key

The WJROTC Color Guard proudly presents the colors at the beginning of each game.

The cheerleaders eagerly watch as kicker Sergio Yepes kicks an extra point.
Do you know that statistics show that students who are involved in at least one extracurricular activity or club, are: less likely to fail, less likely to drop out of school, less likely to get into trouble with the law, less likely to commit suicide, less likely to have discipline problems at school and at home?  At Warren High School, there are many opportunities for student involvement.  Friday night the football game opened with the band playing the Star Spangled Banner and Alma Mater while the WJROTC Color Guard presenting the colors.  Cheerleaders revved up the crowd throughout the night.  The water girls kept the team hydrated, and the ball players added another win for the Lumberjack record book.  When students feel ownership of something at school, they find greater success.  Thanks to all the sponsors, directors, teachers, and coaches who work so hard with the young people and with the parents who also volunteer.


Water girls are important to the well-being of the ball team during the game.

Cheerleaders build pyramids, perform dance routines and stunts to entertain and amaze the fans.

The Lumberjack Band eagerly awaits taking the field.

The band provides precision moves and energizing sounds at halftime.

They were really rockin' the sounds Friday night.

The long tradition of an outstanding band is appreciated by the fans.

How 'bout a little sax?

Jacks appreciated the cooler weather so they could wear their classic uniforms.

Precision movement takes hours of practice on the part of the flag line-all lined up 1, 2. 3.

Rat-a-tat, Rum-pa-pum...the drums are calling.

Senior Logan Adams played a sax solo Friday night.
