NEWS AND NOTES

MOM’S CLINIC SHIRT/FOOTBALL MOMS SHIRT ARE IN

Mom’s clinic shirts will be given to the players for them to take home to all the mothers that ordered shirts or needed a shirt from the Mom’s Football Clinic.  Please let me know if you do not get your shirt from your player!

BUY FOOTBALL TICKETS ONLINE

Varsity football game tickets will stop being sold at 1:00 pm on Thursday from now at on at school.  No tickets will be sold on Fridays for varsity games.  It is a change from what was done in the past.  However, you can buy tickets online anytime by going to: http://gofan.co/app/school/TX13113/Football.  There is a small processing fee, but you won’t have to stand in line for tickets or buy your tickets late.  Plus, your ticket is right on your phone!

PROGRESS REPORT GRADES AND 1ST SIX WEEKS GRADES

Please keep an eye on your players grades as we enter the progress report time and onto the end of the 1st six weeks.  We will be checking each players grades and having conversations with them and their teachers on how they can improve. 

TUTORIALS AFTER SCHOOL

Your player is always allowed to go to tutorials, he just needs to communicate it to his coaches so that we can account for him at all times. All players must go to tutorials dressed in their football clothes (not fully dressed but almost) and go to tutorials from 3:30-4:30.  They must be on the practice field by 4:30 pm and return with a signed pass from their tutorial teacher.  It is not acceptable to skip practice to attend tutorials after school.  We are teaching the athletes time management skills and accountability.  

Thank you for the opportunity to continue to coach your son and we look forward to having a great week!

GO FALCONS!
