Welcome back to our 6th grade Scholars’ Bowl team! We have a lot to do as we prepare for the county tournament in February!
This is our schedule for January 2011:
January 4th………….no practice
January 11th………..match at Thompson 6th Grade Center
January 18th………..practice at HMS; pick-up students at 4:30pm in front of school
January 25th………..practice at HSM; pick-up students at 4:30pm in front of school
Next Tuesday, January 11th, we will travel from HMS to the Thompson 6th Grade Center (the former Linda Nolen Learning Center) immediately after school which means I will need a couple of parents to volunteer to drive our team to that location. Here are the directions to Thompson’s 6th Grade Center:
Directions to Thompson 6th Grade Center
Take I-65 South to the Alabaster/Saginaw exit (highway 31)
Turn right onto Highway 31
At the next light, turn left onto Highway 119.
You will go through two traffic lights. After the second light, you will cross railroad tracks, and the 6th Grade Center is on the right (you will turn right immediately after the railroad tracks.
Once you turn in, drive all the way around the athletic field (it will be on the left) and turn left into the parking lot behind the school. Park in one of the spaces close to the athletic field. There will be TSGC team members waiting outside to escort you to my classroom.
For those of you who will volunteer to drive, please email me by Friday to let me know and I’ll share the particulars with you via email.
Our county tournament/competition is during the school day in February. It will be an excused absence for our team members. I will announce the dates of the tournament as soon as we find out from Central Office.
