The Bishop Ward Pep Club started in the 1940s. For many, many years Pep Club has been the biggest and strongest club in the school. Last year we had 67 members. It’s a fun way to meet new people and build friendships.
What does Pep Club do?
We go to games and events to support our friends & Cyclone teams. We make banners and signs. We encourage school spirit. We host all the Pep Rallies and organize Homecoming and Sweetheart activities. We also host the Black & White mixer for all students in August, after the Black & White football game. Does it cost to join Pep Club?
Yes. To help with supplies and expenses, we do have membership dues. Pep Club dues are $10 per person. You can pay dues at the meeting at the end of August after school or as soon as you can. You cannot earn any Pep Club points until you pay your dues. What else is special about Pep Club?
To be able to be the Pepster of the Semester, to be eligible to run for Homecoming Queen (Seniors only) or to be eligible to run for Sweetheart Court (all grades) you should attend events like sign-making, float building, and go to games and wear your Pep Club uniform to earn
your Pep Club points We have helped our Cyclone teams to be honored as the “Game of the Week” by KMBC Channel 9, Hy-Vee, and MetroSports several times. We have proudly raised
funds for the Cancer Action Foundation in Kansas City, KS for the past six years, donating a total of $6,000 so far to their organization to support cancer patients, their families, and survivors!
What about a Pep Club uniform?
Pep Club members have a black polo shirt they can purchase at the Pep Club meeting in August, or from Ms. Gregory in the Health Office, or Mrs. Reed in the front office for $15. On Spirit Fridays at school, Pep Club members wear their black polo and their school uniform
skirt. At games, Pep Club members can wear their black polo shirts and can wear shorts, or whatever they want. An alternate shirt for the games is the “Show Our Spirit” (SOS) t-shirt. The t-shirt is $10. If a student chooses to purchase both the polo and the SOS
shirt, the cost is $20 rather than $25.
Who are the sponsors?
Mrs. Sue Reed and Ms. Angie Gregory are the Pep Club Sponsors. Mrs. Reed works in the front office and Ms. Gregory works in the Health Office. They both graduated from Ward and they were
both members of Pep Club when they were students. Please feel free to call them at school if you have questions.
