Junior Tigers Update: September 17, 2020

VOLLEYBALL
There is a lot of bumping, setting, spiking, serving, and digging going on in Rand Gymnasium these days as Covid-19 friendly Volleyball is on! With teams in Grade 5, 6, and 7, we have over 75 girls playing. There are no games scheduled this season, yet our coaches and athletes are still working to improve. A big thank you to our coaches: Mrs. Zimmer and Ms. Banfield for Grade 5; Mr. Alguire and Mrs. Kanavos for Grade 6; Ms. Murray, Ms. Brennan, and Ms. Marcotte for Grade 7.

CROSS-COUNTRY
Our team of coaches (Ms. Abbott, Ms. Anthony, Ms. Dorcey, Ms. Krahn, Ms. Ling, Ms. McAllister, Ms. Sharpe, Ms. Waterhouse, and Ms. Young) are very excited to get started. They have worked diligently to build a schedule that considers the many logistical challenges of 2020. Our team is once again large in numbers (~70), and big on enthusiasm. All we need now is some clean air! Parents, please keep an eye on your Cross-Country team emails as we are at the mercy of the weather and air quality. We will make the most of this season, and we are looking forward to our first practice!

ATHLETICS EXPLAINED
During the Junior School Curriculum Explained Evening, there is a session designed to answer all of your questions about our Junior School Athletics program. The session will take place using Google Meet Monday, September 21 at 7:00 pm. Find the link on the Curriculum Explained Evening schedule sent out by the school.

TIGERS GEAR ONLINE STORE: NOW OPEN
With the many challenges of opening our school during this pandemic, students are allowed to wear Tigers gear on their PHE / practice days. As a result, we have been swamped with requests from parents and students for sweatshirts, hoodies, sweatpants and other gear. We do not have any stock on site beyond crewnecks and a few other items. The store is now open and will close on Sunday, October 4. Log in to myYHS for store links or check your email.
