Congratulations to both of our soccer teams for finishing an amazing season with 2 wins! They both won their championship games in overtime. They were very exciting games! At the request of our coaches, please see the information about the upcoming banquet: "The soccer parent game and end of season celebration will be Wednesday at 4PM. Please bring clean uniforms, so we can make sure we get them all back! Thank you We will start the parent game a little early this year, around 4 PM. No worries if you can't be there at 4, we will be playing for a while and you can join when you get there. We split the players up in 2 groups. They will alternate 10 minute periods, substituting back and forth. Parents can substitute at will. Depending on the numbers, siblings are welcome to join on the parents side! We will have pizza delivered around 4:45 PM outside. If you are not playing, we can use some parents to handle the pizza delivery and set up. The kids that are not playing at the time can grab some food and when we substitute the other half can grab some. We ask parents to bring chips and deserts this year. The Orrington Rec is donating the left over drinks in the snack shack, sodas, Gatorade, water and hot chocolate. Bring some more soda of your choosing if you'd like. There is a chance of rain, so if you have a popup tent / ez-up, please consider bringing it. If the rain gets too bad, we will bring the food into the cafeteria. After the game we will do the end of year presentation, either outside or in the gym. We had a great season this year and proud of ALL the players! See you all Wednesday!"

The first day was a success! I want you all to know you have amazing kids, thank you for sharing them with us. **Update on pick-up** If you are picking up your middle school student, they will exit through door 19, the door in the middle school that faces the parking lot. They will walk through the parking lot to go to your car. We will have adults on duty to monitor this. If you are picking up your elementary school student, they will exit through the door by the gym, under the awning. They will come out the door and meet you. If you have both an elementary and a middle schooler, we will send your middle school student around the side of the building on the side walk to meet you while you wait for your elementary student. We will not have any elementary students exiting alone into the parking lot. Thank you, as always, for your patience!
