Go Kids Challenge
It’s that time of year for our students to participate in the Go!Kids Challenge! Go!Kids Challenge is a six-week program that encourages students to be active and make water their drink of choice. Students have a tracking log they will keep in their leadership binders at school during the six-week challenge. If they can accomplish completing at least 5 of the healthy habits listed for each week during the 6 weeks, they will receive ONE FREE 1-day ticket to Sea World! Students will be responsible for logging their healthy choices in their tracker by bubbling in each healthy choice they made. The Go!Kids Challenge will run January 15th through February 23rd. We encourage all of our students to participate. Parents, feel free to make those healthy choices with your students as well! Thank you for your support!
-Your THE Coaches
Ian's Foundation was formed in memory of Ian Fincke who tragically passed away at the age of 16, in October of 2008 as the result of fatal wounds sustained during a skateboarding accident. Ian was a previous student at Hardy Oak Elementary, Barbara Bush Middle School and both Reagan and Johnson High Schools. The foundation was formed to advance the safety and welfare of San Antonio youth through education and scholarship awards. To date over $40,000 in scholarships has been awarded. Ian's Foundation also promotes helmet safety in the San Antonio and surrounding area and supports STRAPS (South Texas Regional and Paralympic Sports). STRAPS was inspired by Ian's Foundation as a way to allow anyone in San Antonio with physical disabilities the opportunity to enjoy the game of soccer. You can read more about the foundation at www.IansFoundation.org.
We will be offering our annual spring soccer clinic for the San Antonio youth as one of our major fundraisers for the Ian's Cup scholarship fund. The clinic will be held on Sunday, March 4th at the Mays YMCA from 2-4PM (with registration from 1:30-2:00) The cost of the clinic is $30 if pre-registered and $35 the day of the clinic. It will include a 2hr clinic as well as a 2018 Ian's Cup t-shirt. The deadline for t-shirt pre-orders and pre-registration for the soccer clinic to ensure a 2018 Ian's Cup t-shirt the day of the clinic is Sunday, February 18th but pre-registration for the clinic will remain open through Saturday, March 3rd at 6PM. Trainers will include local high school coaches, club trainers and high school soccer players from Johnson and Reagan, as they must volunteer at one of the foundation's community service events to be eligible for a scholarship.
