WE’RE OFF AND RUNNING…and throwing, and catching, and kicking, and hitting, and swinging, and passing, and most importantly, we’re competing! Keep up the good work! Be respectful of your opponents, your officials, your facilities, your teammates, your coaches, and yourselves. Fight hard and embrace the competition. Prepare to be successful. Have fun and GO FOR IT!
DO YOUR SCHOOL WORK! You are singularly accountable for your academics. I realize many aid in your success, but at the end of the day your grades and scores are yours. Communicate with your teachers if there is an issue. Get your work in on time. Make sure the work you turn in is of good quality. You are at John Bapst to get a great education. It will not be handed to you. Make it happen.
CONTINUE TO FIGHT COVID-19! I realize there may be fatigue here. There can’t be. Please continue to do the right thing with regard to masking, distancing, sanitizing, reporting symptoms, and staying away if you are ill. We are all linked in our community. In order to have the most successful fall possible we need you all. Stay vigilant. Stay focused. Stay healthy.
KEEP COMMUNICATING! Keep up the good work letting us know when you need a ride to practice. We can’t thank your families enough for helping us here, but thank you again! We really appreciate your support!
The Weekly Schedule (9-13 to 9-18) is attached.
GOOD LUCK THIS WEEK! GO CRUSADERS!
