Each year, the White Eagle Spirit Squad comes out to cheer on our W. E. parents and teachers running the Healthy Driven Naperville Half Marathon and 5K with Team IPEF (Indian Prairie Educational Foundation). WE has one of the biggest teams running with Team IPEF, so we should have the BEST Spirit Squad too!!! We have a new location for 2021 on the EAST corner of W. Jefferson and N. Ewing Street. This spot gives us access to both the 5K and the Half Marathon routes, so we will be able to cheer on every runner this year! We will have donuts and fun spirit items to borrow like pom-poms and noise makers. If you would like to join us, please arrive no later than 7:00 a.m. (6:30 a.m. to help set up). Did we mention... the team with the best spirit squad will earn $300 for their school!! White Eagle Elementary won the #1 Spirit Squad contest in 2017, 2018 AND 2019!! Can we do it again folks!?!?
