8th grade had our health fair on Wednesday. The whole school explored each booth and learned about different aspects of health. We learned about hygiene, our heart, physical activity, how to keep our lungs healthy, and the five food groups. Classes discussed our muscles and worked on team building games this week.
Next week we will have Derby events during SPD!

FEES: Current Greens Fees at Seneca Golf Course are $9.00. This fee must be paid on the day of tournament in the pro shop (Annul passes are valid).
2013 CSAA Tournament entry fee is $11.00 per participant. The CSAA fee is separate and must be paid to the CSAA, or we can bill the parish.
TEAMS: The top three finishing individual scores will determine the winning parish. If you don't have three golfers for a team, they may compete as individuals only.
REMINDER: Parishes may not merge together to form a team. They can practice together but must play for their own parish. The CSAA does not allow consolidation of parishes for individual sports.
AWARDS: 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place team trophies will be awarded to each grade level (5th, 6th, 7th and 8th).
1st, 2nd, 3rd and 4th place individual awards will be given out in the 4th, 5th, 6th, 7th and 8th grade
TIE BREAKER: Score cards will be used to break ties for teams and individuals. Awards will only be given to the top 3 teams and the top 4 individuals after the tie breaker. The tie breaker will be determined from the score card using a hole from the front side and/ or the back side. This hole will be selected by the course professional or his designee prior to the tournament.
- Each foursome that goes on the course will be responsible for another person’s scores in the group.
- No personal coolers allowed on the course.
- No range finders or GPS yardage/distance/slope measuring devices allowed.
- No beginners. This CSAA event is tournament format and not a clinic.
Mr. Kevin Greenwell is the Head Professional at Seneca golf course. He will be the rules judge in this tournament and his decisions are final.

The CSAA appreciates the opportunity to utilize this facility and requires all participants to be respectful to all involved at all times.
