Teachers vs. Moms Kickball Game

Dust off those old sneakers and start stretching NOW! We are in need of a few mom-volunteers to play a friendly game of kickball opposing the Lower School faculty.

Our April commUNITY event is scheduled for Thursday, April 7 following the varsity softball game against Mandeville High School, which is scheduled to begin at 4:00 on the softball field.

Additionally, there is a home baseball game scheduled for that night. Concessions will be sold, including hot dogs and hamburgers, so dinner in no excuse for not signing up to participate or for just attending as a fan. Coach Leslie Watts, Varsity Softball Coach, has promised to move the bases up and closer together. Now, there’s really no excuse.
