We are off to a great start with our spring sports, and the weather finally appears to be cooperating! All regular seasons are in full swing and we are proud of your effort and success thus far! Good luck to the JV softball team, the varsity lacrosse team, the varsity and JV tennis teams, the outdoor track teams, and the varsity baseball and softball teams as we close out a great week!
Keep working hard in practice. Remember that practice is an opportunity to improve. You will get out of those opportunities what you put in! If you go through the motions and don’t take advantage of your chance to work on your craft, your improvement will be marginal at best. However, if you choose to “lock in”, to pay attention to the details, and to put forth maximum effort, all while being excited and coachable, you will see improvement! Improvement means different things to different athletes. It is not where you start that matters, but rather where you end up that truly counts. KEEP WORKING! KEEP IMPROVING! KEEP COMPETING!
As has been mentioned, especially since spring break, we are gaining on the end of the school year. It is important to realize we are not there yet! With regard to your academic success, that can be interpreted in three very different, yet equally important, ways. However, the outcome should be the same. If you are doing well, please keep it up and finish strong. If you have some things to work on, fix them, and finish strong. And finally, if you are struggling, get with your teachers, put the time in, and get better so you can…finish strong! See the pattern? Commit to the classroom as a priority regardless of where you are at today and FINISH STRONG!
Unfortunately, COVID-19 cases have crept up again in the recent week. Please let this serve as a reminder to stay home if you exhibit symptoms of the virus. Take the necessary precautions to keep those around you safe and follow protocols. Please report any positive tests to our nurses. If you need to be tested, please let us know. Wear a face covering if you are required to do so and remain as socially distant as you can. Stay committed to keeping our entire school community as safe and healthy as possible. Thank you.
Team Photos will be on Wednesday, 5/11, after school. Paper order forms will be distributed to teams on Monday. The digital copy of the order form is attached to this email. Please share either form with your parents so they can order ahead of time if they desire. Families can also order at montyrand.com. Please check the time of your photo session on the schedule. Photos will be taken in the old gym. In order to be in the team photo you must have your picture taken on Wednesday. Please wear the appropriate uniform (as mandated by your coach). Be on time to your session so we can get everyone photographed and off to their practice or competition that day. Thank you!
The Weekly Athletic Schedule (5-9 to 5-14) is attached. Go support your classmates whenever you can! Let’s have another great week!
