Another great weather weekend and I hope you were able to get all of your leaves raked! As for news and activities for this week, please see the attached documents for everything going on this week. Most of the fall activities are coming to end and the winter season events are gearing up.
First I would like to congratulate the band on their performance at the Rockford invitational this past weekend. Your Parchment High School Marching Band placed 7th, which also qualified them for the State Finals at Detroit's Ford Field next Saturday. Our band will be stepping off to perform at 5:00 pm next weekend, so be there early to get a good seat. For more information you can visit Mr. Kasperski's band website at www.parchmentbands.org. Great job band, Mr. Kasperski and staff; good luck this weekend!
Football ended their season with a tough and hard fought game against Olivet last weekend. I want to thank Coach Verduzco, his staff and the players for all of their hard work they put in this season! Great job and I am already looking forward to next year. I also would like to thank all of the football parents who organized and put on the team meals week after week, this is just awesome and very much appreciated, thank you!
Coach Nordquist took the cross country teams to Portage West Middle School for their regional competition. The boys team finished 13th and was led by Odessa Britman who ran a 19:13 race, great job Odessa! On the women's side, we only had one girl running, Taylor Hillard who finished in 43rd place and ran with a time of 23:19. Great job Taylor! Again, congratulations to the whole squad for a great season!
The freshman volleyball squad traveled to Loy Norrix last weekend to compete in the Loy Norrix SMAC tournament. The girls finished in 5th place in the Silver bracket, defeating Loy Norrix 25-21 and 25-19. Throughout the day Parchment also defeated Bridgeman and Sturgis. Congratulations ladies!
This is a four day week for all of the students. They will not report on Friday due to this being a district professional development day for the teaching staff. So, happy early Halloween! This is not a trick, but a treat for the students!
Lastly, just a quick reminder that we will be having a PPIP meeting this Thursday from 6:00-7:00 in the high school conference room. I hope to see new faces this week!
Have a great week!
