Students in 5-8 grades are able to participate in basketball. Students must be committed to the season.
Girls in grades 6 and 7 may try out for cheer. Mrs. Colter is our cheer sponsor. She will be sending home information regarding cheerleading. Cheer may open for 5th graders based on numbers and uniform availability.
Academic Requirements – In order to participate in sports, cheer or clubs, students must:
1. Maintain a C- average in basic subjects.
2. Have a passing grade in all classes.
3. Be present for the last four hours of the day of the game, or have pre-scheduled appointments approved by admin.
4. Not be under any suspension or expulsion.
Failure to meet these requirements on the mid-quarter or quarterly report card will result in ineligibility of extracurricular activities for a period of four weeks upon issuance of the report. After four weeks, if requirements are met, the eligibility is reinstated. If not, ineligibility continues until the next report card. Grade check for ineligible athletes will be November 19th. The student may attend practices, but may not participate in events (games).
Athletes must have a current sports physical and copy of insurance card on file. Forms were sent home with students. Players will not be able to practice until they have their physical. Physicals are good for two years.

Due to the popularity of the archery program, we had to limit the number of students that we can safely supervise in the gym. This year, grades 6-8 may participate in the archery club. Grades 4-8 learn archery basics in PE class. Mr. Trentmann is the archery coach. Tentatively , there is an archery tournament scheduled at St. Gertrude's Parish on February 26th. More information will come home at a later date.

NO SCHOOL on NOVEMBER 1st
2. Schedule a routine study time
3. Help your student make a plan- What is due tomorrow? Is anything late? What tests do you have coming up?
4. Minimize distractions (phones, TVs, loud music etc.)
5. Motivate instead of monitor- Ask about assignments, quizzes, RC, and tests. Give encouragement, look over completed work, and make sure you are available to answer questions.
6. Be sure to sign the planner-Your student's planner is a good tool for communication between school and home.
7. Reach out to the teacher before small issues become big issues.
8. "I don't have any homework." Have you heard that? Well, there is typically always something to work on. Students should be reading nightly, studying math facts for fluency, practicing sight words, etc. There is always room for improvement!
Our goal is to help you help your student be successful in school! Remember, students in grades 3-8 can stay for Project Success if they are needing help in specific areas.
