Basketball Referees Needed

If anyone is able to help out with refereeing basketball games, please contact the school. You only need a basic understanding of the rules to be able to help. Please contact Mr. Ritchie at the school if you are able to help.

Cross Country Skiing Fun

These pictures were taken of some of our students who participated in a loppet on the weekend. A loppet is a Scandinavian term meaning a gathering of skiers, who participate in a timed ski event for fun and/or competition. Looks like a lot of fun! A big thanks to Mrs. Tacey and Mrs. Brown for organizing these fun and healthy outings for our students.

Basketball News

Our basketball teams are practicing and games for the league for our grade 6 teams begin this week. Unfortunately we had more players sign up than we had coaches and have had to make decisions about teams entered in the league. We have decided to limit our league play to the grade 6 boys and girls teams. Grade 5 girls have been invited to the lunch practices and if there is interest we will enter a grade 5 team in the tournament as well at the end of the season. For the boys, we are still looking for someone interested in coaching the grade 5 boys with an opportunity to enter the tournament as well. In the meantime, Mrs. London and Mrs. Ollenberger have kindly offered to run some intramurals on Thursdays for grade 4’s and 5’s interested in some basketball as well.

Basketball Coaches Needed

Volleyball season is done – thanks to everyone who helped make this season fun for all the participants. The first meeting to set up the basketball season is taking place this week and we are looking for any parents interested in coaching. We have a coach for the A girls team but are looking for any others interested in helping with the other teams. Please contact Mr. Ritchie if you would like to help with this.

Cross Country Run

Due to a mix up with the bus dispatch, we were unable to attend the run today. We will host our run on Wednesday, Sept. 25th at Kin Park. If you are able to help out by marshalling at a corner, please let Mr. Ritchie know.
