(There are so many more of you now! It's exciting. Very open to ideas about how to communicate from now on. Should I just post things on the blog on the website? Are emails good?)
Greg Pera asked me to re-send this message to all of you (see below). It's the same message that went out in Parent Square. In it, you'll find an impassioned request for people to volunteer to coach, most urgently the fall sports: volleyball and cross country. Do it! You'll love it! I'll make sure you get some trashy gift at the end signed by all of your wonderful, grateful, adorable students. You'll probably cry.
Hope to see many of you tomorrow and Monday!
White Hill Sports
Hello White Hill Parents, Welcome to White Hill Sports! We have a wide variety of school sports programs in which your kids can participate. While some offer the chance to compete against other schools, some are just for fun. Either way, it allows the kids to work with other students and develop social and communication skills. However, for this to happen, we need your help. For the most part, our sports teams are coached by you, White Hill parents. So, if you’re interested in a great way to support our students, please consider volunteering to coach. I’d do it, but I don’t know the first thing about coaching volleyball, cross country, or track. Heck, I didn’t even make my 7th-grade basketball team even though I totally nailed the tryouts. If interested, please email Greg Pera at firstname.lastname@example.org for more info. Parent volunteers are required to fill out an RSVD application form, have a TB test (or have a current test on file), and have a fingerprinting background check (it’s the law). Fingerprinting fees are paid for or reimbursed. Parent volunteer forms, participant permission slips, and additional information will also be available at the White Hill sports table at orientation.
