Intramural  Ultimate Frisbee  

Last Wednesday we had an amazing 50-student turnout for our first intramural sport, Ultimate Frisbee–a mix of basketball, football, and soccer played with a frisbee! We kicked off the season with fun raffle prizes (Frisbees! Ice cream coupons!). A heartfelt thank you to the tireless and always game Intramurals Coordinator, Gina Wilson for leading the program each Monday and Wednesday afternoon. Remember that intramurals are open to all students with a parent’s permission slip. It is not too late to join the fun!


Cross Country Parent Meeting

Cross country families, mark your calendar for a parent meeting Tuesday, September 12th, at 4:15pm in the school quad area.  Coaches will give an overview of the season and take any questions. 

**We need 1 or 2 team parents to organize team communications, pizza parties, carpools etc. Please email our Teams Coordinator, Susan Yoshimura if you are interested: [email protected]. 


Sell Ice Cream to Support Sports and 8th Grade Activities 

The Athletic Boosters and the PTA are teaming up to sell ice cream after school to fundraise for school sports & 8th grade activities.  We need volunteers to make this effort successful!  Please click on this SIGN UP link to choose from the current available dates and times.  In addition, we are looking for a few volunteers on a more regular schedule to establish an Ice Cream Committee to help train new volunteers throughout the year.  Please email fundraising@spmsathleticboosters.org to get the full scoop!

Fall Sports Update

Thank you to all the students who are trying out for our fall competitive sports.  Team information will be sent to family emails as soon as rosters are formed.  We appreciate your patience! 
Also, we look forward to seeing students from all grades at our first day of intramurals, this Wednesday, September 6th.  We will be playing ultimate frisbee and will have some prize giveaways!  

Competitive Team Updates

Some reminders:

Students must attend BOTH tryout dates to be considered for the team.

Regarding Cross Country: Although there are no tryouts, students who join must be willing to run for the entire practice and also must be willing to compete in meets.

Have your student dress for the weather and and bring their own water.

Team schedules and coach availability will be determined very soon! Bear with us, and stay tuned for more information.

Families, please keep in mind that we  have a very limited number of available spots on competitive teams and an outpouring of students interest. Many students will NOT make the team. We know it can be disappointing! We appreciate your understanding and encourage students to participate in  intramurals sports which has room for all.
