PARENTS: Thank you to all the parents who helped with uniform sewing on Tuesday, came to our kick-off booster meeting Wednesday, and who helped with concessions at the game on Friday!! We would also like to thank everyone who came to Chick-fil-a on Thursday to support the Gahr Instrumental Music Program! We have an important field show committee meeting this Wednesday at 6:30PM in the Band Room and are less than a month away from the Gahr Invitational Field Tournament. We will need parent help this week with the eWaste as well as serving lunch at the Saturday practice.
STUDENTS: Just a reminder to wear athletic clothes, athletic/tennis shoes (no sandals or converse), sunscreen, a hat, and bring a 1-gallon water jug. Please make sure you're hydrating 24 hours ahead of time, eating breakfast & lunch, and keeping up with your homework.
