Study Hard!

The first drawing of our quarterly Good Grades Drawing will take place Wednesday, November 9. Be sure to bring by a copy of your first quarter report card into the office to enter the drawing!

Our Good Grades Quarterly Drawing is one of our favorite projects because the drawing encourages our athletes to work as hard in the classroom as they do in the gym. The idea is simple: For every A or equivalent earned, your child has the chance to win any item from the Pro Shop for free!
