The last day to sign up for this year's Birdie Fan Club is Friday, Oct. 7, 2022! Open to students in Pre-K through 5th grade, members of the Birdie Fan Club are VIPs at home football games: they get to play games with "Birdie" the mascot and the Melissa High School cheerleaders, then follow the Melissa Cardinals football team through the tunnel.

Membership costs $25 for one student and $15 for each additional student. Sign-up forms can be picked up in the front office at any Melissa ISD elementary school. Proceeds from all memberships will support the Melissa High School cheerleading program.

Questions regarding the Birdie Fan Club can be directed to Alex Whorton at alexandriawhorton@melissaisd.org.
