Hi everyone,

Please note that we need ALL wine donation and other prizes brought in by Thursday of this week. Chili Cook-off is fast approaching! We need to give Monika (Alex’s mom) a couple days to ensure that all is wrapped in baskets and ready to go.

Ian (Serena’s grandfather) with be collecting on Tuesday morning at Leander at 7:40 am. Michaela (Sequoia and Lachlan’s mom) will be collecting at Leander at 7:40 on Wednesday and Thursday.

Please contact me directly if you need to make other arrangements. Sheri (289)776-9091.

For new parents, we know that the commitment to your child’s rowing team seems to involve a lot of your time, money and effort. It is unlike other school sports. And I’m sure you are wondering “what has my kid dragged me into??? I didn’t sign up for this!!” I know I felt that way at first. We mentioned at the parent meeting that the fundraisers are to help pay for the expensive equipment that our students are able to use everyday to train including ergs at the school, boats, oars, coach boats and so much more. We are so fortunate to have three fully trained coaches and two experienced rowers who volunteer to commit countless hours of their own time to take our kids out at ridiculously early hours in the morning everyday before going off to their own jobs for the day. The experience that your child will have from this will be one no other school sport can give. They learn determination, dedication, self-discipline, commitment, teamwork. They become better versions of themselves physically and mentally. It is worth the commitment from all ends to make this happen. Thank you so much for your efforts towards this. You will not regret it.
