Spring Sports Sign-Up
We wrapped up another year of Ski Club with an all-day event at Devil’s Head on Friday, Feb. 22. Snow conditions improved as the day went on, and everyone in attendance had a great time. (Check out the pictures on the EAGLE website.)
The variable weather made it a rough winter for Ski Club, with three out of six trips being cancelled—two because of the cold and one because it was too warm and raining! In spite of it all, we persevered and had a wonderful level of participation with 58 students and parents joining us for various outings during the season.
Refunds for the cancelled trips were left in students’ lockers today. Please check with your child to be sure your check came home. If you paid for a trip but did not attend, please complete a request form from the Ski Club website (http://eagleskiclub.wordpress.com) and leave it in the reception office, or email it to Dan Siehr (firstname.lastname@example.org), who will issue a refund.
The home game against Abundant Life that was originally scheduled for February 5, has been changed to Thursday, February 14. The boys will play at 4:00 pm and the girls at 5:00 pm, in our EAGLE gym.
Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow!
