Crusader Basketball Try-outs

Dear 6th Grade Parents,

The Athletic Dept. is, once again, excited about the upcoming Crusader basketball season. Mark Fruitt will coach the team. Try-outs for the Crusader basketball team will be held on Thursday, October 18th from 3:30–5:30pm in the PDS gym. Boys should be picked up at the main entrance at 5:30pm. Try-outs will be closed to all parents and spectators.

The Crusader basketball team is designed for boys who want additional opportunities for basketball practice and games. However, playing time is not guaranteed. While it will be more intense and competitive than our intramural basketball program, it will be consistent with our philosophy and high standards relating to sportsmanship and keeping athletics within a proper framework.

Assuming that more boys try out than the 10–12 spots available for players on a basketball team, we will have to make cuts (unlike Crusader football). Before try-outs, we will talk to the boys about their attitudes and responses to the selection process. We hope and think that our 6th grade boys are mature enough to handle the disappointments that some of them may experience by not being chosen. Boys that play Crusader Basketball are also encouraged to play in the Intramural league. The two programs do not conflict. Looking forward to a great season!

Thanks,
Dennis Smith
Director of Athletics and Operations

St. Louis 6th Grade Trip Reminder

Dear Parents,

Attached is the information, itinerary, and bus lists for tomorrow's St. Louis 6th Grade Trip. See everyone in the morning!

Thanks,

Athletic Dept.

St. Louis 6th Grade Trip Reminder

REMINDER:
Dear Parents and Sixth Graders, Departure time for the trip will this FRIDAY, September 21st at 8:45am. All fathers should arrive by 7:45am to put their luggage and lunches on the buses near the football field. Boys and fathers should both bring a sack lunch (drinks will be provided). Fathers will then go to the EC Commons where coffee and breakfast will be provided. There will be a brief meeting at 8:15am in the EC Commons. Boys are to report to school at the regular time and go to their homerooms.

Because it is a group trip, please do not plan or request individual excursions.

The business office will bill you $875.00 for the total cost of the trip. This will include two nights at the hotel, transportation to and from St. Louis and transportation to all events. It also includes tickets for the baseball game, Six Flags, Rec-Plex, the St. Louis Arch, and meals at the hotel. Additional money will be needed for food at the ball park, lunch on Saturday at Six Flags, lunch on Sunday at the St. Louis Zoo, and for any souvenirs or snacks you may want to buy during the trip.

The dress code for the boys will be appropriate school clothes. Boys will not need a coat and tie. Hats are permissible outside only. Please bring a swimsuit for the pool if you intend to swim. You may want to bring an umbrella or rain gear because most events go on as scheduled. We have already taken care of all reservations and tickets. We have also attached an itinerary and a bus list. I am looking forward to a great trip with the boys and fathers.

Sincerely,

Dennis Smith
Director of Athletics and Operations
