Cheerleaders Calendar Shoot: Tuesday

Tuesday was another day in paradise for the members of the Philadelphia Eagles Cheerleaders.

While 2016 calendar photo shoots continued, half the squad set out to Isla Mujeres, an island community off the coast of Cancun.

While on the Island, the Cheerleaders first had an opportunity to visit the Little Yellow School House, a school for special needs children. At the School House, the girls were able to distribute valuable learning materials such as pencils, markers and books, while also handing out some Eagles backpacks and SWOOP stuffed animals.

Rookie Kodi, who speaks fluent Spanish, was able to read a book to the students and speak to them as well. After that, the Cheerleaders played, danced and brightened the students' days.

"I'm currently a high school Spanish teacher, and to bring a little piece of home with me was great, getting to read to them and be with them," Kodi said.

After saying adios to the children at the Little Yellow School house, the Cheerleaders made their way to Tortugranja, a turtle farm and habitat in southern Isla Mujeres. There, the squad observed and fed the turtles, and also made some new shelled friends.

To wrap up the trip to Isla Mujeres, the squad stopped for lunch at a café where they met Agapito Magaña Sánchez, Presidente Municipal del Municipio de Isla Mujeres. Kodi helped with the introductions, and Presidente Sanchez told the girls to be sure to return to the island soon.

On Wednesday, photo shoots continue from Riviera Maya and the squad will also be going on an excursion which will include zip lining and much more. Stay tuned to @EaglesCheer Twitter to follow along.
