It takes a village…

September 30, 2011 Leave a comment

Here’s an update on the concession fund-raiser scheduled for the 6th. First, thanks to Mrs. Feehley and Mr. Wong for organizing. And thanks to all those who have volunteered their time and items for the sale.

As of last night, we still would like donations of 3 cases of water, 18 cases Gatorade. We still need more or less of everything else on the list and for more people to volunteer time.

We have several parents so far who are willing to work. More would be helpful. Please contact Mrs. Feehley at or 203.834.0616 if you can help or donate additional items.

Only one wrestler has made a commitment to help out. Frankly, that’s not up to the standard we expect. If you’re not playing in the football game, competing in an away game in another sport, or are involved in the band, you should be helping at the concession stand. Contact Mrs. Feehley ASAP to let her know you’ll be there. Don’t wait to the last minute. Parents, please speak with your sons. Any almuni (parents or athletes) still getting e-mails or reading the blog would be welcome to come help out too if you’re around.

Preseason Fund-Raiser. Save the Date – 10/6

September 12, 2011 Leave a comment

Hello! Over the last couple of years, we’ve been fortunate to secure the concession rights at a fall football game to help support the team. That activity, your booster dues, and the citrus sale in the spring are among the reasons why we’ve been able to get a new mat and support the wrestlers in many other ways.

Mrs. Feehley let us know that we have the concession again on 10/6 to raise money for the wrestling boosters. Mr. Wong and Mrs. Feehley will be in charge. For now, please mark your calendars and save the date. We expect all the wrestlers to help out unless they have a conflict. Further details will follow.

Team Pre-season Meeting 3:00 PM on Wednesday 9/14

September 11, 2011 Leave a comment

Coach Foldeak wants to meet with all wrestlers after school on Wednesday. The meeting will be quick — most likely no more than 15 minutes.

Focus will be about lifting, the new weight classes (there’ll be a scale for anyone who needs to check weight and set a goal), and one or two other topics. All wrestlers should attend. Please encourage friends interested in the sport to attend too.
