Daily Announcements-Wednesday

September 1, 2009

Good morning! Today is Wednesday, September 2nd, and it is a B Day for everyone!

Today is the last day for sixth grade girls’ basketball open gym/tryouts from 3:30-5:00 at Ball Charter. There will be a bus (#75) to get you there, but it will be parent’s responsibility to pick you up. Informational handouts are on the activity table.

I have notified most girls interested in seventh and eighth grade girls’ open gym/tryouts. There has been a slight change in the open gym/tryout schedule due to multiple sports going on. Tryouts will be this week on Thursday and Friday at Ball Charter from 6:00-7:30, and on Saturday from 10:00-12:00. Informational handouts are on the activity table.

This is just a reminder that there is a baseball game tonight against Christ the King at Schlitt at 4:30.

**There has been another change in the Cross Country schedule. Thursday’s meet has been moved to Washington Park.

If you were invited but unable to attend the IMSA meeting last night please see Mrs. Van Der Slik.

Please make sure you are using a drawstring bag if you need to carry a bag from class to class. Starting Tuesday, September 8th we will enforce this rule. That should give you plenty of time to invest in one.


SPRINGFIELD, Ill. – Springfield Public Schools will host its Community Conversation with Superintendent Dr. Walter Milton, Jr. on Tuesday, September 15, 2009, 6:30 p.m. at The Hoogland Center for the Arts.

The Feasibility Study Committee will present options for upgrading the District’s high school facilities during the Community Conversation. All community stakeholders will have an opportunity to discuss the options with the superintendent and school officials.
