Optional Practices & some minor changes

If you look on the post from a few days ago, the PreK through 3rd grade schedules are all set for practices and competitions.   One note is that the times for the PreK Tuesday practice has changed to 6:00 until 6:45.   Also the 1st grade team also moved their practice time back to 6:45 until 7:45 on Tuesday.

Tonight is an optional practice for all the PreK through 3rd graders who want an extra practice.   Each week every team will have a Tuesday practice and then if they want to come again on Thursday, it will be one big practice.   This practice on Thursday is NOT mandatory and it WILL be very packed and a bit chaotic so please help your kids (especially the very young ones) to follow along.   Coach Spencer Mortimer will run the Thursday practices.   December 4th will be the only Thursday that this is not offered.    So NO PRACTICE on December 4th.

4th-9th grade wrestling Parent meeting tonight.

All 4th- 9th grade wrestling parents have a meeting tonight at the Mapleton Jr. High Cafeteria from 5:30 to 6:30.   There will be a dealer with wrestling shoes to sell and we will have information about registration and schedules there.   If you are a PreK-3rd grade parents and missed the meeting last night, you can still come tonight.
