The Weekly Roar

Notes from Nick Novak: Sunday January 3, 2016


to all of our coaches and athletes who kept things going during the Winter Break, Between practices and tournaments, there wasn't much downtime. Thanks as well to Michael Duffy and the various event staff who worked games. Hopefully, everyone got some valuable time for R & R and quality time with family and friends.


Here are some helpful reminders for the upcoming week:

1) Welcome back to Lisa Veslany who rejoins us after recuperating from knee replacement. We're happy to have her back and I'm sure she's happy to be back too.

2) The staff meeting tomorrow will be in the cafeteria. The agenda will be sent out tomorrow morning. Looking forward to seeing everyone!

3) The first Lionstime of 2016 is this Wednesday. Be sure to encourage students to come by for help as they prepare for midterm exams.

4) I think the social committee has something planned for this week. Stay tuned for more info.

Can You Only Work a 40 hour Workweek?

I saw this "ad" and it seemed pretty intriguing. You have to admit that the prospect of cutting down your workload and having more time for your family, your friends, and yourself sounds pretty good.

Check it out. If you choose to sign up, let me know. I'll personally contribute to the cause.

NOTE- I don't work for her or get anything from them.

All Good Things Must Come to an End

I can't remember if it was Geoffrey Chaucer or Nelly Furtado who said it, but the sentiment definitely rings true as we head back to work tomorrow.
