Good Monday Morning,
I hope that everyone had a great weekend! Attached to this email is as usual, the weekly schedule of events and activities.
I would like to start off by thanking all of the parents and families that attended conferences last Thursday, we had a few more attendees than last year, but we can still do better. We had 34% of our families show up for conferences and I would like to see more of you attend if at all possible. If there is something that we are doing that is preventing you from attending please let us know. I would also like to hear from you if you like our conference format; I would also appreciate any feedback that would help us improve on how we are doing things, thank you!
Scores from last week's events are as follows:
In girls' basketball, last Tuesday your Lady Panthers traveled down to Schoolcraft. They were able to beat the Eagles by a score of 43-23. Keeley Hinton was the leading scorer for the Panthers with 14 points and Paige Berg was a close second with 9 points. Last Friday we hosted the Galesburg-Augusta Rams. The ladies fought extremely hard, but ended up with a loss after a second over-time; the final score was 27-23. Our Lady Panthers over-all record is currently 6-4 and a 5-1 KVA record. Keep up the hard work ladies!
In boys' basketball, Tuesday the Parchment hosted the Schoolcraft Eagles, but was unable to pull off a win. They battled with Schoolcraft for four (4) quarters, but ended up with a 60-49 loss. James Nelson-Leatherman was the lead scorer that night with 20 points and Alex Dreir had 10. Friday we hosted the Rams of Galesburg-Augusta, again coming up short, losing 53-38. Hold your heads up men and keep working hard, the results will prevail!
In wrestling I do not have scores from Wednesday night, but Saturday the team headed down to Bronson for an invitational. The team placed fifth overall and the individual wrestlers going 4-1 for the day were A. Meade and N. Fayling. A big congratulations goes out to Thomas Guess for earning his first varsity pin, way go Thomas!
Our new competitive cheer team traveled down to Buchanan last week for competition. Even though they did not place, there scores are steadily improving. Way to go ladies, keep up the hard work!
Last, but surely not least, our bowlers, rolled against Schoolcraft at Continental Lanes last Monday. Our boy's team earned themselves a victory beating Schoolcraft 24-6. Unfortunately the pins were not falling as well for the ladies as they ended up with a close 16-14 loss. The high rollers for the boys was Jeff Monroe (203) and Ben Wilcox (196); for the girls it was McKenna Cook (183) and Taylor Sayers a (161)!
I also want to put a reminder out there for KRESA's EduExpo tomorrow night at the Kalamazoo Expo Center in the Kalamazoo Fairgrounds. The event will run from 6:00-8:00. Please plan on attending if you want more information on our Education for Employment (EFE) or Education for the Arts (EFA), Early Middle College, or Youth Opportunities Unlimited (YOU).
Parchment High School will be hosting an Early Middle College information session on February 11, 2015 starting at 6:00 in the high school auditorium. Parchment is also hosting a FAFSA Completion Workshop on February 17th in the high school library. This is a great opportunity to get these applications completed and there will be representatives there to help if you have questions. If you worried that this is during dinner time, they will also be serving pizza for those who attend!
Finally, I would like to remind all those who might be interested that we will have our monthly PPIP meeting this Thursday from 6:00-7:00. Please let me know if you plan on attending or if there are any questions that you might have for me to answers.
That is all I have for now, have a great week!
