One Week. It is hard to believe that we are finally about to start a new academic year. Our staff is working tirelessly to prepare all the rooms to be ready for your students’ arrival. We are excited to get the year under way and get things running as close to normal as we possibly can. I am sure there will be many new experiences that we will have to navigate together as we start this unique year, but we are honored to be able to come along side you and your family in this new adventure! If you have any questions at all, please reach out to our staff. We know there are so many uncertainties and we want to help you make this transitional year as smooth as possible.
Volleyball Season. Volleyball season is here! We believe we will be able to have a regular season this year so here are the details you will need to start off. There will be 3 teams. This year we will be having an intramural, Junior Varsity, and Varsity team. The intramural team does not require tryouts and is available to any girl in the 4th-12th grades. This team does not travel. They will only play home games.
The Junior Varsity team will be for 5th-10th graders and does require a successful tryout to make the team. This team will have 8-10 members and they will play both home and away games.
The Varsity team will be for grades 5th-12th and also requires a successful tryout. This team will have 8-10 members and will play both home and away games and travel for tournaments.
We will have tryouts Friday, September 4th, after school from 3:00-5:00 for those girls trying out for JV and Varsity teams. Those who want to only play on the intramural teams do not need to come to this. The students who make the teams will continue practices after school on Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday of the next week. This will not be the normal schedule, but since we weren’t able to have volleyball camp we will need a jump start before our first game.
Regular practice schedules will be:
Intramural practice: Monday 1:30-2:30
JV: Tuesday 3:00-5:00, Friday 3:00-5:00
Varsity: Thursday 3:00-5:00, Friday 3:00-5:00
We will try to have the finalized game schedule to you by the first day of school. If you have any question you may contact Rachel Schwender at 724-691-5218
Guys Sports. Our goal for the 2020 fall season is to have football/volleyball/golf available for the young men. Our desire is to mainly have football for them, but as you can imagine, we are having trouble finding other schools that are not under heavier regulations than we are at this time. If we end up not being able to fill a whole season, we will supplement football with a combination of co-ed intramural volleyball and golf lessons at Glengarry Golf Links here in Latrobe. Please continue to be in prayer as we are consistently trying to work towards a fun, exciting, and competitive 2020 fall sports season. We will hand out a formal schedule as soon as we have a more concrete idea of scheduled games.
Thank you. Thank you for entrusting us to join you in training the next generation. We do not take your sacrifice lightly and are honored to be a part of what God is doing in your family. If you have any questions at all, please do not hesitate to contact us!
