Two new modified sports offerings this year

We are excited to offer students two pilot programs this fall--modified girls volleyball and modified football, as self-funded programs. Any 7th or 8th grader interested is welcomed and encouraged to participate in these programs. Please note that in order to participate your child will need to have a physical that has been conducted within the past year. Any physical that is older than 30 days will need a health recertification form filled out by the parents. Please stop in to see the nurse next week to turn in physicals and recertification forms so your child is eligible for the first practice. The nurse will give athletes who are cleared a yellow form to turn into their coach that indicates they are physically cleared to participate. The Middle School Nurse will be at the high school on August 13 from 7:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. (this is a change from the original information given), and at O'Rourke Middle School on August 24 from 7 a.m. to 7p.m. Modified Football practice begins on August 26 at 3:30 p.m. at O'Rourke. All other modified programs practices (Girls Soccer, Boys Soccer, Girls Volleyball, Boys Volleyball, Field Hockey) will begin September 1. Programs start times vary so please schedule below. If you have any questions please contact the athletic office at 399-9141 ex 83307.

Ready, set...Read!

The lazy days of summer don't mean that students can't find time to read! A great way to get kids interested in summer reading is by involving them in a reading schedule or events. And BH-BL is making that easy. Check out its new summer reading program entitled Every Hero Has A Story, which is co-sponsored by the Town of Ballston Library and the BH-BL Library Media Department.
