The Reagan Dancers and Cheerleaders have an ongoing commitment to support our larger San Antonio community.
The group participates in several service opportunities throughout the year, most recently supporting Wounded Warriors, San Antonio Food Bank, the Muscular Dystrophy Association, and Tennies and Tiaras 5K walk/run; the Reagan Spirit organization has helped raise over $4,000 for these various community organizations.

On Friday, November 7 Lopez Drama will present Alice’s Adventures In Wonderland. While you may be most familiar with the Disney movie version, the Lopez stage adaptation by Deborah Lynn Frockt is much closer to Lewis Carroll’s original stories of “Alice In Wonderland” and “Through The Looking Glass”.
The production process began in September with over 100 talented students auditioning over a three day period. All Lopez theatre students were invited to audition and ultimately a company of 70 students was chosen. Continue reading
The Spirit organizations of Johnson and Reagan set up a friendly competition to see which organization could gather the most canned food items for the San Antonio Food Bank.
During the week of the Johnson versus Reagan football game, the Johnson community was asked to donate as many canned goods as possible. With the support of the community and the assistance of the feeder schools, Johnson was able to donate 3,498 pounds of canned food and send $315.27 in change to the Food Bank.
According to the Food bank, when you convert the cash into pounds of food, Johnson actually donated about 6,651 pounds of food. Due to the efforts of Reagan’s Spirit groups, they were able to donate an additional 1,104 pounds of food for a grand total of 7,755 pounds for the Food Bank. When all was said and done, the Food Bank estimates that the amount of food donated last week will equate to about 6,058 meals for San Antonio families in need.
Thank you all for helping our Spirit groups at Johnson and Reagan collect canned goods for the Food Bank.
The Johnson and Reagan Dance Teams also teamed up to raise money to send children with Muscular Dystrophy to a specialized summer camp. Through the efforts of both teams, we were able to contribute an estimated total of $2,305 for these families. The support given from our communities was phenomenal. We were also lucky enough to meet one of the families during the evening of the Johnson versus Reagan game.
It was a great opportunity to make our dance students aware of how The Muscular Dystrophy Association gives back.
