Welcome Back
We would like to thank each of you who came to open house last week. The students appeared to be excited about returning to school, meeting their teachers, and seeing their friends. We are looking forward to the return of the students tomorrow, Monday, August 25. Teachers and staff have worked hard to prepare for their return and we look forward to working with both you and your children during the year.  Please keep the school up to date with your contact information so that we may keep you informed with all the important events that are happening during the school year.

Upcoming Events for the Week Include:
  • Softball tryouts will be held Wednesday, August 27th.  7th and 8th grade girls interested in trying out for the team will need a physical prior to the 27th.
  • Tryouts for the Boys Soccer Team will begin Friday, September 5. Students wishing to tryout must turn in their physical to Mrs. DeCristofaro prior to tryouts.  
 
Looking Ahead:
  • There will be no school for students and staff Monday, September 1 in recognition of the Labor Day Holiday.

 
School Supply Lists
Boys Soccer
For any 7th or 8th graders who would like to try out for the boys soccer team, you will need to get a sports physical from your pediatrician, family doctor, or clinic before tryouts. Sports physical forms are available from Karen at the front office. Tryouts will be Friday, September 5th right after school and continue into the following week Monday and Tuesday after school.

We are also looking for team managers. Any 6th grade boys who would like to tryout for the team NEXT year (when they are in 7th grade) and any 8th grade girls who played on the girls soccer team last year are welcome to join us at tryouts as potential team managers.

If you have shin guards and soccer cleats, please bring them to tryouts. If not, coupons will be handed out at tryouts so that you can get them at a discount. You will also need plenty of water to drink.

As a reminder, this information will also be sent home with 6th/7th/and 8th graders the first day of school.
