  • GIRLS BASKETBALL OPEN GYM:  will be held today after school in the Large Gym from 245pm-430pm.  This is NOT a requirement to make the team, just a forum for you to showcase some of your basketball skills.  =)  Please bring the appropriate shoes and attire with you.  The locker room will be closed, but the bathrooms inside the Large Gym will be available.  Please make the necessary arrangements to be picked up on time.  Don't worry if you can't attend this one, there will be another one next month, Thursday, December 14th: same time and place.   Due to limited amount of space, visitors/observers will not be allowed inside the gym on these dates.  Tryouts will be held the week of January 8th, more details to come; be sure to read the bulletin/School Loop on upcoming dates.  Thank you!  ~Ms. Oliva
