Message from Mr. Finkle

I can't believe that it has been a month since the end of school. I hope that everyone has enjoyed the weather and time with family and friends. I just wanted to touch base with the community on a couple of items that you should be aware of!


1) Athletics: Friday, July 21st is the last day to complete the ATS Portal in order to guarantee that your child will be eligible for the first day of practice. All physical information must also be turned in to either Sue Jordan in the main office or Anthony Guidotti in the athletic office. Football begins on Monday, August 7th. All other Fall sports begin on Monday, August 14th. If you have any questions, please email or call Sue Jordan at x3003 or Anthony Guidotti at x3014.


2) DELRAN READS!!!
