Team Dinner Wednesday

This Wednesday we will be having our final team dinner of the indoor season in the MPR rather than the cafeteria. If you have not had the chance to do so yet, please sign up to donate some food item at the following link...

  • We are still in need of a few items!


Please make sure your donations are there before 5:00pm. If you are sending in donations with your child, please let them know they should get it to the Multi Purpose Room (not the cafeteria) before 5:00pm.


We head nothing but positive feedback from the first dinner and are looking forward to this next one. It appears we still need a few items, so please see what you are able to bring.

If a student-athlete is not going to spend the night, there is an option for them to be picked up and signed out by a parent no later than midnight.

The team will be coming back from a track meet Saturday (Woodward Relays @ Georgetown Prep). They are expected to go home, shower, and have dinner.


Plan to bring $3.00, a sleeping bag or bed role, pillow, water/soft drink, snacks (preferable to have enough to share), cards or other board games of your choosing. If you have a question about anything you wish to bring please ask. We will be conducting a bag search as required by FCPS as students enter the field house for this event.


The $3 will be to cover the cost of bagels and juice for breakfast on Sunday morning. So please don’t forget to bring this when you check in. Anyone interested is expected to sign-up no later than the team dinner on January 21st. Use this link for sign-up:
