  • Eligibility Warnings come out on Mondays, but Eligibility is ran Wednesday to Wednesday. Therefore, if you were ineligible last Wednesday then you may not play/cheer in Tuesday's game. Per handbook policy, if your child is ineligible 2 weeks in a row they will no longer be in that team. It is very important that focus on their grades at that point.
  • After Events: Parents may check out their athletes from the coach following an event. AD approval is only needed if your child will be going home with someone other than the parents. Please send me an email at least 24 hours in advance to make these arrangements.
  • Winter to Spring sports schedules are posted on the Website!
  • Boys basketball parents meeting is Mon. Oct 3rd at 6pm @ CMS Auditorium
  • AD update: I apologize for being out of the office from Wed-Friday, and not at Saturday's games. I am having some pregnancy complications. If all goes will I will be working the rest of October. I still try to get to my emails as soon as possible. If you have an immediate concern please check with the coach first and then call the office where our secretary or Mr. Grabowski can assist you.
