Falcons News · Football Weekly Newsletter: Terry Week: Sept. 30-Oct 5, 2019


Parents,

It was a great start to district play this past week!  All teams are 1-0 and the freshmen white team will finally play a district opponent this week versus Terry. Also, this is an IMPORTANT week as it is the end of the first six weeks grading period on Friday.  All kids must be passing with a 70 or above in ALL classes by Monday!

Also, this is our PINK OUT week!  We pick one game during the month of October for Breast Cancer Awareness and this is the week.  This is the only week we allow the players to wear pink accessories for the game. It can be socks, wristbands, gloves, etc.  We only give the varsity socks to wear for unity purposes, but the sub-varsities can go crazy.  After this week, we are back to our school colors. They will be allowed to wear pink during practices though, so at least the pink gloves that they get will be used.

Here is the game schedule this week:

Thursday, October 3:

9th White vs. Terry at Foster HS at 5:00 pm

9th Gold vs. Terry at Foster HS at 6:30 pm

FOOTBALL CONCESSION WORKERS

We are still in need of several workers for football concessions at Foster which will directly benefit the football program. We need lots of help this Thursday for the Terry games. Terry is always a big night in sales. Varsity parents, please jump in on any open slot for football. JV parents, please consider helping out with a freshman game if you cannot make it out on the road one week to follow the JV. We need you all!

SCOREBOARD AT HOME GAMES AT FOSTER

I’m sure many of you are wondering why we don’t have a clock or scoreboard working at home games.  It is because we are supposed to get a NEW SCOREBOARD and it was supposed to be installed 2 weeks ago.  However, with the week that rained so badly, we lost time installing it. We are hoping to get it installed this week, so that we can use it for the rest of the season. It is actually an LED scoreboard and will be moved to the far right side of the field close to the field house.

Thank you to all the parents that have volunteered to bring coaches meals on Saturday work days. They have been excellent and we are thankful for them.

Have a great week!

GO FALCONS!
