Ms. DeMaio

Update as of 9/29/22
Thank you to those who were able to attend the meeting yesterday. Please stop by room 210 to sign up for tryouts in the grade-level folders. I also suggest you join our McAuliffe Cheer Google Classroom for up-to-date information on practices and tryouts. There is a Cheer Contract and a Cheer Packet that need to be signed and returned to me prior to 11/1. They are available outside of room 210. Please, please, please get your physical or interim paperwork in order and returned to the nurse no later than 10/11!!
Hi Everyone! My name is Erica DeMaio and I have been a teacher at McAuliffe for the past 19 years. When I started in 2004, I took over as Head Coach of our McAuliffe Cheerleading Team. I coached for 12 years and resigned in 2015 after having my first child. I am super excited about coaching again and look forward to meeting everyone! Please see below for important information. 
Are you interested in trying out for Cheer?  Our season starts with tryouts at the beginning of November.  The team cheers for both girls' and boys' basketball games, which take place from December through the beginning of February.
There will be a virtual meeting on September 28th from 2:45-3:30. The link will be posted below. Please make every effort to attend the meeting, but if you can not, see Ms. DeMaio in room 210 during homeroom with any questions. 
You are STRONGLY encouraged to get your physical paperwork situated ASAP! It could take a while and you will NOT be able to practice or try out without having a cleared physical. There are NO exceptions. Extra forms can be found outside of my classroom, 210. Remember if you have had a physical within the last 90 days, you will only need to complete an interim form.
