One of my goals is to improve our communication to you. I may have found a great way to do that. It is called Remind101. Please take a quick moment to link up to this service. Your phone numbers and emails are kept private from me. This is great for parents and students. You can look at the FAQ’s:

I will then be able to send you instant emails or texts (of your choosing) about an event cancellation, venue change or any other pertinent information. You can opt out at any time.

I am hopeful this will answer frequently asked questions – for example – “Where is the game today?” “Do we still have a game today?” “Was practice cancelled?”
