Concessions Volunteers Needed – We enjoy offering concessions from the mezzanine level of the gym during our home games each season. In order to do this we need parent volunteers to help sell food and drink. There is little food preparation required and this is a great way to meet new friends and support your children and their teams. If you are willing to sign up for a shift (typically a couple of hours), please sign up online and view the dates and times we are in need of help.

Message from Lower School Head – Tracy Murch
It was great to see everyone at registration and meet all of our new families. It has been a wonderful beginning to the new year. As in the past, the teachers will continue to post information on the Lower School portion of the LMS. Your child's classroom teacher will post on the class page, and we will post on the LS Parent page. It is very important that you log in and check your LMS page. If you are unsure of how to access this, please contact us and we can help out. You should also check the blog section of the LS Parent page as this is updated often with information regarding upcoming events. Don't forget to return the forms from your registration packet if you have not yet done so.
