    Congratulations to the 8 gymnasts who have made it on to districts! They compete this Saturday at Auburn Mountainview at 6:45pm to earn a change at STATE. Get some friends together and come support your gymnastics team! If you see Kirsten Timm, Riley O’Brien, Olivia Chapman, Emily Komboukos, Lizzy Platin, Michelle Simontov, Nicole Mar, or Ashley Cheuck congratulate them and wish them luck!

    Many of you have registered for your sport on FamilyID but have not finished the process! What? You thought you were done?? NO! You need to see Ms. Nolan in the ASB office and get a green clearing sheet and then see Ms. Olson in the main office to get the final check off. If you don’t finish the process, you won’t practice on Monday the 27th, and with the snow, we’ve lost a couple of days to get the paperwork turned in. Ms. Olson will be clearing on Friday to make up for a snow day. The lines will start getting longer the closer we get to the first practice so get it done early!! Did you know that there are only 7 more days to clear before the break? Don’t procrastinate!! Google the definition of procrastinate!

    Clearing for spring sports has started! There is one whole week before the season starts where we have no school so you need to be cleared by the 16th in order to make the first practice on the 27th. Once the season starts, you will not practice on the same day you clear. From now on, there will be no clearing on Fridays, so you have 8 more days to get cleared by the 16th. Start in the ASB office and get your green clearing sheet from Mrs. Nolan, then see Ms. Olson in the main office (Ms. Molnar has changed her name to Ms. Olson). If your sport is going to cut, make sure you don’t miss a practice!

    Winter athletes make sure you get your uniforms and equipment turned in to your coaches so that you don’t get any fines! This could prevent you from clearing for spring!
