We hope this is not the case, but if your child(ren) will not be re-enrolling with us in Prek4 through 12th grade next year, now is the time to complete the withdrawal process for next year.

High School Annual Powerlifting Meet

This Saturday, February 8, Bishop Reicher Athletics is hosting its Annual Powerlifting meet in our gym. The meet starts at 8:45 a.m. and should be finished by 4:00 pm. Spotters and bar loaders are desperately needed to help make this event a great success for the participants and our school. This is also a great opportunity for students and parents to earn service hours or Time, Talent, and Treasure points (3 points awarded for each hour worked). Even if you are only able to work a few hours, your help would be greatly appreciated! Coach Holcomb is asking for all boys in 7th-12th grades to volunteer. Students/parents can work a morning shift or an afternoon shift. There will be 6 platforms going and around 4 people are needed per platform. The more volunteers on hand to help will make the meet run efficiently. This meet is a big fundraiser for our athletic department. If you are able to help please email Coach Holcomb. This is one of those time when Cougar Nation can step and help. Please feel free to email or call Coach Holcomb if you have any questions. Your willingness to volunteer is greatly appreciated.
