Soccer Game: 3rd - 5th Grade VS Concord

We are welcoming younger students to our soccer program this year! A 3-5 th grade soccer team will be coached by Jamie Yerkes (3rd grader Lila and 8th grader Gus) and the 6-8 th grade team by our PE teacher Sean Fortier. We encourage all 3-8 th graders to choose to participate in the games and enjoy the team atmosphere of competition.

  • Practices will take place during PE classes during the school day, and so are required for all students. There will also be optional after school practices on any Tuesdays and Thursdays that don't have scheduled games for 3-5th graders from 3:00-4:00, and for 6-8th graders from 3:45-5:00. We would appreciate some extra adults to help supervise students during these practices (no experience with soccer necessary), so if you can volunteer, please let one of the coaches know.

  • Games will begin after the Fall Field Trip and will be scheduled for Tuesday and Thursday afternoons for both teams. The schedule is still evolving, and will be very specific to each game for which grade levels will play. Some games are in the calendar below and we hope to have a complete schedule listed here next week.

  • Equipment required for games includes cleats, shin guards, and mouth guards. Before you go shopping, plan to check out the huge supply we've got for the taking, and if you have gear that no longer fits, consider sharing it with another family. The supplies will be on the back/cubby room porch of school for anyone to look through.

  • Volunteer Help: We appreciate parents who donate their time to help supervise practices, ref our home games, and to provide snacks for the team at half-time during all games. Sign up sheets for these three requests were out at the Open House and can be found in the purple folder on Krystal's desk.

Skating Lesson: K-8th

ICE SKATING

K-8th graders will begin ice skating on Friday, November 8. Pick up will be at the Fenton Chester Arena, across from the main building at Lyndon Institute, between 3:15-3:30. We will also ice skate on November 15, 21, December 6, 13, and 20 (note that December 20th is a half day before the holiday vacation and so that pick up time will be 1:30 pm).

Please help us take advantage of this as an opportunity for all students to learn something more than just how to ice skate. Part of the reason we take students off campus is for them to practice independence, responsibility, and management. One thing we really need to students to practice when we skate, so that we can all maximize our time, is how to put on their equipment. Our goals for each age group are below, and if you can reinforce these things with some practice at home, we will be much more likely to meet them:

  • K-2nd graders: prepare for help by taking off your own boots, pulling up socks, and loosening laces

  • 3-5th graders: do the above, plus try to tighten your own skates by pulling pairs of laces, starting at the toe, before asking for help

  • 6-8th graders: put on and tighten your own skates, then prepare to help others

Fall Yard Sale

Mark your calendars for Saturday, October 5 for this year's fall yard sale! As usual, we will be collecting donations the week prior in front of the barn, and are already seeking volunteers to help with all aspects of advertising, food prep, set-up, and the sale itself. The shift-list is available for signing up in Krystal's office, and will soon be transferred to volunteersignup.org, stay tuned.

We'd like to finalize a leadership committee ASAP, by delegating oversight of food, advertising, set-up, sale, and volunteers. This group will meet for the first time this Friday morning at 8:00 am in the kitchen. Please come, even if you're unsure how much you can be involved. Tell Nelia if you'd like to help, but can't make that meeting time.
