Please review this document carefully in the locker to the left.  Show you parents.  Ask us if you need help. How you dress matters!

Our asst. coach for three years, Ethan Keogh, has taken a teaching post in Cabo, Mexico.  Alums (Hannah-Grace, Pradeep, Estlin, Patience, and Akira), former lead parents (Becky Kneubuhl and Jocelyn Tabata), and Ms. Parker wish him a fond farewell at July gathering.  

Thank you Ethan!
