Welcome back everyone. I hope you had a great summer and are looking forward to this season as much as I am.
First some business news: I have estimated that the costs for participation on this year's team will be aproximately $200 per player for a total of $6,000. These costs will cover expenses such as concession stand start up purchases, t-shirts, shooting shirts, practice jerseys, uniforms, senior night ceremonies, Queen of the Palms tournament expenses, team travel, and the end of the year banquet. As you may already know, meetings these cost is now left to the participants of each sport and the coaches.
We hope to raise at least 1/2 of the needed expense and to that end we will be hold our first team fundraiser on Saturday, September 8th for 8am-12am. This fundraiser will be a multi-family Rummage/Bake sale.
Players and parents are encouraged to participate. The proceeds will be divided among the participants to help offset the $200 per player expense.
Secondly -- players please plan on our first team meeting of the year after school in my new room 3-106 on Thursday, August 16th.
Parents -- please plan on attending our first parent meeting of the new season on Tuesday, September 22nd at 6:30 pm. Please park in the back in the Bus Loop area and enter the building in the South East corner (behind the stadium)
If you have any questions or concerns at any time during the course of the year, please feel free to call or email me.
