Hi Coaches, Parents and Athletes,
I hope you have enjoyed this season as much as I have. It has been my privilege to help out the team while getting to know such wonderful students and parents and coaches. The athletes have worked hard and grown so much. A final thanks to the coaches for all of their tireless time and effort pouring into our kids! We appreciate you and you make a big impact in their lives!
Below are some last minute news items and "to-do's". Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns and I hope to see you next season!
Return of Varsity Whites and Other Team-Owned Equipment / Gear
If you have a team-owned uniform such as the boys varsity white relay uniform, please launder, place in a ziplock bag with your name on it, and arrange to return to Terri Coney at your earliest convenience. If you have other equipment such as a borrowed foam roller, please contact Coach Corda or Coach Kindell to arrange return.
Receipts for Team Expenses
If you worked on a team event and purchased items for it, please turn in your original receipts contact Coach Corda to arrange to turn those in immediately. We need to get the expense reports turned in to bookkeeping ASAP.
Varsity Letters
If you accidentally took a block MV at the banquet but you really only needed a "foot", please contact Coach Corda to return the block letter (athletes only earn the block letter once -- even if they do more than one sport; additional varsity letters and seasons are indicated by the small patch emblem that is sewn onto the block MV). If you earned a varsity letter, but you were not at the banquet to receive it or we ran out of block letters and you need one, please contact Coach Corda to arrange to get your letter.
