    The Bellevue East Cheerleading team is an organization committed to excellence and dedication. East cheer team members are able to express themselves through promoting school spirit and cheer competitions as well as an outlet for socialization and leadership. Each individual on the team is recognized for their unique talents, abilities, and interests. Multiple team and individual awards are received throughout the year. The cheerleading program has the following goals: achieving academic excellence, promoting school spirit, and serving as positive community role models. The cheer team participates in community activities for various causes while promoting values that encourage leadership and excellence, and by sharing talents through youth clinics and cheer exhibitions. The main purpose of a Bellevue East cheerleader is to support athletics/activities, Bellevue East, and the Bellevue community. The Chieftain cheer program prides itself in tradition and belonging to Chieftain Nation! For more information about Chieftain Cheerleading, check out our website.
