Current 7th and 8th graders interested in playing a spring sport must have a sports physical on file dated April 1, 2018, or later. Spring sports include: boys' soccer, girls' soccer, boys' baseball, and girls' softball. Students will not be allowed to tryout without a valid sports physical on file. Tryout dates/times are currently "to be announced." Forms are available for pick-up in our front office or online.
UPDATE: Students interested in trying out for soccer should plan to attend an informational meeting in Ms. Baughman's room on Wed, January 30, from 3:15 to 4:00 pm. This meeting is for both boys and girls interested in trying out.
The Charleston restoration project, Spartina Alterniflora, needs our help! They need plastic pots with holes on the bottom and potting soil with fertilizer. If you can donate either of these items, please take them to Ms. Hoesli's science room (#612).
