Athletic Department Update:
Ø Our field hockey team volunteered their services to help Bonnie Hass, a retired Harwich Elementary School physical education instructor, raise money for a scholarship fund dedicated to the memory to her son, Alex. Great job by both teams extended themselves beyond the playing fields.
Ø Taylor Murray, our certified Athletic Trainer, is in the final stages of Impact Testing all of our fall student-athletes. She is in her office every day after school assisting our student-athletes and coaches getting ready for their daily events, whether it be practice or games, and she is also available to help injured athletes get back as soon as they are physically cleared. She works closely with our school nurse, Mrs. Dufault, to ensure that if any of our student-athletes are injured, all parties including teachers are aware, so if modifications are needed they can be made.
Ø Significant progress is being made on the construction of the bleachers and it is quite possible that by next week’s Friday Focus they may be in use!( Fingers crossed on that one)
Ø As always our athletic schedule can be accessed by clicking the link on Aspen to ScheduleStar.com or following us on Twitter @ MonomoySharks

Medication forms can be found on the MRSD website under the Student Services tab or can be picked up in the health office. Students who carry an Epipen for life threatening allergies need to have medication orders updated annually and should have an allergy action plan on file with the health office. Please contact me to ensure an appropriate plan is in place.
