Events for the Week

This is a slower week for the Varsity. We only have our invitational at Bath this friday in terms of meets. Things to remember for this week:


If you have NOT paid your athletic fee, then after Wednesday (5/11) you will not be allowed to participate in any meets until it is paid. We have reminded the kids of this daily.


Athletes: STAY on top of your grades!! Next week is regionals and the week after that, GAC League meet. If you are struggling in a class; talk to the teacher and seek help! We have lots of teammates who would be willing to tutor those who might be struggling in a subject.


Next Tuesday (5/17) we had listed a "possible scrimmage" day on our calendar. We are actually going to be going to Montrose to compete in a dual meet. The busses will be leaving immediately after school. More details to follow.


Seniors - your senior wills are due ASAP. This will allow us to put together our banquet flyer. Remember, it must read: I, ______________ being of sound mind and body, do bequeath the following.... (All senior wills are to be turned into Coach Lake).


Finally, Maple Syrup sales! We would like to be able to wrap these up within the next two weeks. We hope to have all bottles gone and money collected by May 27th. Please, if you have the ability to sell these, please do. This is the biggest money maker that we have. We receive NO money from the school for our equipment and so we must fundraise it ourselves. Please help us in this effort. See Coach Lake or Coach Schartzer if you want to check out additional bottles.


As always, if you have any questions, contact me (989) 277-8111.
