Saturday, September 29, 2018 Williamstown Invitational - This was a huge success and as far as I know the biggest cross country invitational for Williamstown. More that 1400 runners, more than 45 schools represented and over 800 cars were parked!! And the icing on the cake - it was a beautiful day for a race. Thank you to all for helping make this event the huge success that it was. This can not be done without an army of volunteers!
Wednesday, October 10, 2018 - Regionals at Idlewild Park in Burlington
Athletics - Intramural Basketball and Cheerleading -
Mr Ballard and I met with the coaches Tuesday evening (September 11). Mr Ballard gave the coaches their team information. Coaches confirmed available practice days with Mr Ballard's calendar. Coaches will call their team members and practices will start next week with the first game Saturday, September 22.
Really grateful to the volunteer coaches for giving their time to coach the players.
Friday cheer practices are over at this time. The girls have received their uniforms.
If you want to find black tennis shoes (Keds style, but doesn't have to be that brand - just plain) that's fine. Otherwise just regular tennis shoes.
Cheer - First cheer day - Saturday, October 13 - The girls did great! Two-thirds of our group was able to come. Very impressive because this is Fall Break time. They do charge to get into the games - adults $2, students $1 - I will ask if they can not charge for our girls cheer - thinking similar to basketball players are not charged - let's see what happens.
These are cheer opportunities. Girls are NOT expected to attend all the games. I know everyone has busy schedules. And again, these games are subject to change with little or no notice. I am doing my best.
The following are game times and locations:
October 27 - Games at Grant County HS - Boys - 10:30, 11:30, 12:30 - I will find out what grades are playing at what time. We will divide up and girls will just do one game. I will check on K/1 so our littles can cheer them on - they usually do an early practice/scrimmage.
November 3 - Games at SES - Girls - 10:30 4/5, 12:30 2/3, 1:30, 2/3 - 4/5 will cheer the 10:30 game; 2/3 can pick either 12:30 or 1:30 game and I will split the K/1 to do the 12:30 or 1:30 game.
November 10 - All Games at Williamstown, Gym 2 - Boys starting at 9:00, last game at 3:00 - This looks like "scheduled games" for Williamstown teams are at 10:00 (4/5) and 3:00 (I need to find out what grades). So, at this point 4/5 cheer would cheer at the 10:00 game and everyone else at the 3:00 game. Cheer siblings can cheer together.
If any of this doesn't make sense, please feel free to text me - I'll respond as soon as possible. Thank you.
Fifth grade class is covering home game concessions and the gate for hours to help with their DC trip.
Our intramural basketball teams and cheer ladies will be honored at one of the basketball games. After the holidays we will work on a dance routine for the elementary talent show. Any questions, text me.
Academic Team - Start up for 2018/2019 will be Friday, October 26, once walkers are released until 4:30. Parents must provide a note that their child can stay after school with contact person and number for the first meeting. At this time, not sure where we'll meet because of all the after school meetings and activities. Info and permission slip going out after Fall Break.
