Announcements will appear in this section for upcoming events and/or any urgent information for parents.
The after-school sports program is open to students in grades 6, 7 and 8. In the fall we offer soccer, cross-country and field hockey, in the winter we offer basketball, and in the spring we offer lacrosse.
For students who would like to participate in fall sports: Please take the time to read over this information as soon as possible.
Completed physicals and histories must be reviewed by our school physician before a student is cleared to begin practice. The first day of practice for the fall season is September 9th. To ensure that your child will be cleared in time, all forms must be submitted no later than Tuesday, September 2nd. Completed forms can be mailed to the school (to the attention of Linda Schnurman), or brought to the 5-8 office beginning the week of August 25th. Forms received after September 2nd will be accepted, but we cannot guarantee that clearance will be obtained by the first day of practice.
Students cannot begin practice until all documents have been received and processed, no exceptions.
