Fall Sports

Field hockey and soccer take place this fall. I was happy to see a number of you stay after school last week to try out for a sport. Good luck to those who tried out!!

Once practices begin there will be late buses available to take students home. The late bus leaves at 4:45 pm.

Being active in a sport or club is a great way to meet new people. If you have an idea for an after-school club let Dr. Thomas-Brown know and we will chat about getting it started.

Have a Wonderful Week!!
