Flag Football
This is simply an opportunity for the students to get outside and have some fun. The children will be participating in scrimmages and playing multiple games at each session. This is being offered to all of the 6th, 7th, and 8th grade students. There will be one session a week for 5 weeks. There is an extra “emergency day” scheduled in case we happen to experience any inclement weather on any of the days flag football is scheduled. You must fill out and turn in a permission slip for child or children before they are eligible to participate. Permission slips can be found on the school website and in the Brown E-Envelope.

Soccer Shots
Soccer Shots is a youth soccer camp for students in grades Pre-School through 3rd grade for the school year of 2019-20.

There are two camps. The first camp is for the Pre-K and Kindergarten students. This camp will take place from 3:15-4 PM on Wednesdays, starting on Wednesday, 9/4. This camp is an 8 week camp, and the last day of camp will be Wednesday, 10/23.

The second camp is for the 1st-3rd grade students. This camp will take place from 3:15-4 PM on Thursdays, starting on Thursday, 9/5. This is an 8 week camp, and the last day of camp will be Thursday, 10/24.

Soccer Shots Director Tyler Reid and new coach Steve Maas will be our coaches this year. We are very lucky to have them at our school. They will come out once a week for 8 weeks to teach soccer mechanics, lead creative soccer activities, and have FUN! Each camp day will only run for 45 minutes after school and it’s only $99 to sign up for the WHOLE CAMP. There is a $10 registration fee that includes a Soccer Shots jersey for your child.

After school, the students in the camp should meet in the “Primary Walkers’ Room”, otherwise known as Mrs. Lang’s room. On early dismissal days (first Tuesday of the month), you will have to either send your child to aftercare or bring your child back for camp. On normal school days, if your child normally goes to aftercare, they will be dropped off there by Coach Reid after the camp. (Please notify Mr. McGowan if this applies to your child). Please feel free to send them with a healthy snack to have quickly after school. Keep it small.

*On days with inclement weather, the camp will take place in the gym.
*Registration for the camp is done online.
*Please see the flyers in the Brown E-Envelope for registration information.
