2016 Season Is Here23 November, 2015
So we have been busy, though I haven't posted anything here. My apologies. The Tucson Tussle was great! We had twelve teams from around Arizona come participate. The next parent info night is coming up, to be held December 9th from 6 to 7:30pm. For those parents new to this, we highly encourage you to be there. It's your chance to ask questions. For those parents that missed the last one, it's a chance to catch up. For those parents who were at the last one, it's a chance to get some more information or ask questions you weren't able to previously, or questions that have come up in the interim.
In case you missed it, there will be a meeting this Wednesday, but not Saturday. The next meeting will be December 2nd after that.
I will be updating the handbook this wekend, as well as several issues discovered on the site. If you have any input, please feel free to contact us and point it out or let us know. The AZ Tax Credit site is back up and running. The link has been updated. I will also update the 2016 season meal sign-up this weekend. Thank you for those who have already expressed an interest in signing up.

It is coming up on the first Parent Info Night, to be held at VAHS in the MPR, September 2nd from 6 to 7:30pm. Parents, please come and find out what this program is all about. It is a great opportunity for the students to get hands-on in multiple industry-related areas. Take this chance to ask your questions face-to-face and meet the mentors who will be guiding this program. We look forward to seeing you there.

We have been through the first meeting, attended a couple of open houses, and have had several students sign up. If you have missed it, don't fret. There is still time to join the team. Wednesday meetings have been moved to 4 to 6pm. Saturday meetings will start in September, which will run 8am to noon'ish. As a general rule, we do not meet on half days, and we do not meet during break. Some of the dates that we have put out on the handout are still tentative, and some have already changed.

Today is the first meeting of the season. Not to worry if you are not able to make it. There are plenty of pre-season meetings to attend and sign up. Today we will be donig some basic intros, going over the team constitution, etc. It will be an easing back into things as we go forward. We will throw some ideas around about how the meetings should be conducted on Wednesdays, and provide some basic information that will be available here shortly.
