Swimming: 3:00 - 5:00 p.m. this week @ Davan pool. Parents need to pick up by 5:15 p.m. There is no swim practice tomorrow.
Parent meeting- There will be an important parent meeting tonight at 5:15 p.m. It will be held on the bleachers above the pool. The coaches will be reviewing team rules, meet schedules and answer any questions that you may have. We are excited to meet you as well.
Bathing Suits- There will be a representative at practice on Thursday to fit swimmers with team suits. Each swimmer is responsible for contributing 1/2 of the cost to the purchase of their bathing suit, and the school will contribute the other half. The parents contribution is $25.00. We will need the money after vacation. If you are sending cash please send exact cash. If you would like to pay by check please make it out to Westbrook Middle School. It is our hope that the suit will last more than one year, so the swimmers don’t have to purchase suits yearly. If they are worn only at meets and rinsed out thoroughly…they should last.
Daily Announcements- There is daily announcements for the swimmers at school. Those announcements will be on daily as they are needed. There is a parent bulletin as well with daily announcements. I would suggest that you look at them for write ups as well as announcements about swimming. Any questions: Please contact Nancy Goan @ Goann@westbrookschools.org
Indoor Track: 3:00 - 4:30 p.m. ~ Students will report to the caf. to wait for their practice.
