Thu June 04 2009 @ 06:42 PM

I hope that your will be able to attend the CYO Sports Recognition Night on Sunday June 7 at the Philadelphia Sports Clubs in Chalfont. I am providing the following link for more information about the event along with a registration form. http://www.wagdogs.com/sites/4/HawkTalk/

This is a fun evening for the kids. They get to use all of the sports clubs facilities, including swimming, basketball etc. the evening includes pizza and door prizes.

The highlight of the Sports Recognition Night is the awarding of the Tommy DiFurio Sportsmanship Awards for members of our Track team. The award is given to a Cadet, Minor, Novice and Bantam Boy and Girl from the track team who displayed good sportsmanship during the season. The award honors Tommy DiFurio who was a member of the 2008 Class of SJR and who loved to participate in SJR CYO sports. I hope you can make it!!

Track Team Uniforms Must be Returned by June 8

Thu June 04 2009 @ 06:24 PM

Anyone who has not returned their track team uniform (singlet and shorts) must return them by Monday June 8. SJR students can turn them in at school (there is a uniform box in the Main Office). Anyone who is planning to attend the CYO Sports Recognition night can turn them on that night. I am planning to collect them on Monday night at the Gym at St. Roberts from 6:00 PM to 7:00 PM.

Remember, you should wash them and place the uniform in a pastic bag with your name on the bag so that we can check you off the list when you return the uniform. Please return the uniforms to me ASAP, I don't want to have to make phone calls and hunt you down to return them!

If you have any questions, call me at 215-343-0525.

Regards,

Coach Ed Clark

Next Week:

We have received an invitation from St. Alphonsus Track Team to a practice meet that they are planning to have for Archdiocese Championship qualifiers from Region 11 which will be next Tuesday at 6:00PM at Upper Dublin HS.

Uniform Returns

Thu May 14 2009 @ 07:09 PM

Athletes and Parents:

Since the season is finished for Bantams and athletes that didn't qualify for the Area Championship meet, we would like to begin the process of collection the track uniforms. Athletes should have the uniforms (shirts and shorts) washed before returning them. We would request that you place the uniform in a plastic shopping bag. You should write your name and the size of the uniform on either an index card or post-it note and staple it to the bag containining your uniform. You can bring your uniform to the pizza party, where Mrs. Wanner will collect them. If you will not be attending the pizza party you can bring them to one of the practices on Monday, Wednesday or Friday at CB South during the next two weeks. It is important that we get all of the uniforms returned so that we have them for next year. If you do not return the uniform, Mrs. Wanner will contact you.

Thanks for your assistance with this.

Sincerely,

Coach Ed Clark

Track Team Mass and Pizza Party

Fri May 08 2009 @ 02:47 PM

Athletes and Parents,

The track team Mass will be Saturday May 16, at 5:00PM at St. Robert's. After the mass, we will have our annual Track team Pizza Party in the School Cafeteria. We will also distribute the medals that our athletes won at the Region 11 Championship Meet. This is a great time for us to join together as a team to worship and give thanks for a great season.

In order to get a head count on how many people will be attending this event, I am requesting that you send me an email reply, noting the number of people who will be attending. Anyone who is willing to volunteer to help with the Pizza Party is asked to either call me (215) 343-0525, or send me an email.

Also, Trays for St. John's Hospice are due in the Freezer at St. Robert's next weekend. I am hoping that many of you will be able to prepare a meal for the less fortunate served by St. Johns and bring this with you to the team Mass. I will arrange to have some of kids meet you at the doors to the Church and take them to the hall freezer.

At the Region 11 meet, members of the 6th grade class from St. Roberts were collecting funds to support their Uganda Project. They have been raising funds to support the construction of a Catholic High School in Uganda. They will again be collecting funds for this worthy project at the Pizza Party. Your generous support of this worthy cause is appreciated.

I look forward to seeing you at practice tonight.

Regards,

Coach Ed
