Winter Sport Athletes:
If you did NOT play a fall sport you will need to update your paperwork to play in a winter sport (basketball & wrestling). Those athletes who participated this fall should have the necessary paperwork on file.
PHYSICALS: Everyone needs a current physical. All juniors need an updated physical dated after May 1, 2019. Sophomores & Seniors who had a physical completed last year are good for this year.
ONLINE FORMS & INFORMATION: All athletes are required to complete a set of online forms and information once each year to compete in athletics. Directions to complete this process can be found on the Borah Website. (https://sites.google.com/boiseschools.org/borah-sports-medicine/athletic-forms)
DON'T WAIT! DO IT TODAY! All required forms should be completed prior to the first day of tryouts/practices.

Borah Transition Night
Transition Night is an opportunity for families and students on IEPs to learn more information to support student transition planning for life after high school. Topics include: guardianship, disability supports in college, employment, and support services available during and after high school. For more information contact Mr. Defares or Mrs. Wattles. Free childcare will be available.
We've checked our 3,500 books since the beginning of school. Yes, your students do read. Ask them what they've been assigned to read, ask them what they've chosen to read. More than anything, turn off all devices and read with them!
