****LAST WEEK FOR DEVERS GYM TO BE OPEN IN A.M. ****
PLEASE READ THIS ARTICLE TO GET ALL THE DETAILS AND RULES
Dear Devers Parents and Grandparents,
Our school board recently reminisced about how Bill Hamm, one of our beloved former teacher/coach/administrators, opened up the gym for Devers kids in the summer. It was an opportunity for Devers students to get out of the house and get a little exercise. Tommy McIntosh and others remember coming up and shooting baskets, playing ping-pong, and helping Mr. Hamm with various summer chores.
So, we’re going to try a variation of that for three weeks, in the mornings from 9:00 to 11:30, beginning Tuesday, July 10...
…….....we’ll do Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays (no Mondays or Fridays) for three consecutive weeks in July (remember, we will not start this until after the week of the 4th)…….it will end on July 26th.
This is for students who will be attending school in Devers this coming year, and if we have any high schoolers who want to set up something like this for high school-aged kids, they can call me or come by and we’ll set something up for them too…..but it will be at a separate time, if we do…
We will, however, employ a high school student to assist with supervision and to help keep the gym clean and tidy.
Rules: (We may amend these rules if/when it becomes necessary).
Students will enter through the front office and sign in and out right outside the Principal’s office door. This way, we will be able to monitor and fully control who comes and goes. The front, exterior gym doors will be used in case of emergency only, so parents will not be able to enter there or expect their children to exit there.
After checking in/signing in, students will travel down sidewalk and straight to the gym. Students will not be allowed in any other part of the facility other than the gym because the gym is the only setting that will have supervision and because our custodians are cleaning and waxing floors in the hallways and classrooms, trying to get everything in good shape for the 2012-2013 school year.
In the gym, we will have basketballs out and perhaps the volleyball net set up. If we have a good turnout, we can have some soccer “pick-up games” out behind the gym.
We will have a cooler with drinks and a jar where you can place a quarter if you want one. The water fountains and restrooms in the gym foyer will be accessible.
We will also set up some tables and chairs, off to the side in a corner, with cards, puzzles, checkers, etc.
