Good morning! Today is Tuesday, September 1st, and it is an A Day for everyone!

Sixth grade girls’ basketball open gym/tryouts continue today and Wednesday 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.

Seventh and eighth grade girls’ open gym/tryouts will be this week on Wednesday and Thursday at Ball Charter from 6:00-7:15. Informational handouts are on the table.

There has been a change in the baseball schedule this week. Thursday’s game has been moved up a day. It is Wednesday September 2nd vs. Christ the King at Schlitt at 4:30.

There has also been a change in the Cross Country schedule. Thursday’s meet has been moved to Rotary Park instead of Franklin, IL.

There is an IMSA meeting tonight at LMS from 6:30-7:30 to invited 7th and 8th graders. If you are unable to attend due to a conflict 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.
