PAY IT FORWARD-
The Stupak Community Center is seeking donations of used running shoes to help support 24 kids from their PAL's Program as they have been training for the upcoming Spartan Race scheduled for April 18th. Most of the kids in the program have never participated in a race of this nature or anything even close. They are currently in training and are already up to four miles and still going strong. Most will participate in the 1+ mile portion of the race and the rest will do the 8+ mile run. The kids do not have proper shoes to run in and have been training in shoes that they use for every day walking (school, sports, church, etc.). If you have any gently used running or training shoes that you would like to donate, please put them in a bag and drop them off at the Arbor View Snack Bar during home games. You can also message on this post to arrange for special pick up if needed. The kids range in age from 10-18, in varying shoe sizes, so any donation would be greatly appreciated. Any of the shoes that are not used for this race will be given to other underserved kids and adults in need living around the center. Thank you for your consideration!#aggiesgiveback #payitforward
1st Payment Reminder
Reminder: The first payment, if paying for uniform package in installments, was due March 15th. Please bring checks or money to Mr. Gallagher in room 721, and he will write you out a receipt.
Aggies Win Bengal Kick-Off
The varsity won the Bengal Kick-Off last weekend by outscoring its opponents 48-8. Strong starting pitching and timely offense helped the Aggies come out on top in the first tournament of the season. The team is off to St. George this week-end to play in the Red Rock Classic. Go Aggies!
Fundraising Information for Players and Parents
Invoices for uniform packages will be distributed later this week, with the varsity's to be handed out to parents during the game on Thursday. Junior varsity parents should expect theirs soon after.
If parents plan to rely on a payment plan, please follow these due dates: 1.) March 15th, 2.) April 1st, and 3.) final payment on May 1st. Of course, if any parent needs to make different arrangements, s/he can either email Mr. Gallagher at firstname.lastname@example.org or see him at the field.
One of the topics to be discussed will be the cost of player uniform packages. Each player will receive an invoice showing all of the fundraising he has completed over the course of the 2015 preseason. There were numerous opportunities for players to raise funds including the following:
Players earned 1/2 of all money they raised, with the exception of the golf tournament. Each golfer was charged $100; the baseball program had to pay Badlands $50/golfer, so the profit was $50/player. Thus, the player earned half of that which would be $25 per golfer he recruited. If the player sold a tee-sign or a team sponsorship, the player will get 50% of those as well.
