From your Midtown Principal, Rhonda Jones
Parents, The Rhetoric Kickball House Tournament is beginning! If your student asks to pack athletic pants or shorts to change into at lunch on Tuesday Sept. 14th – the answer is YES! If your student asks you to purchase face paint in their House color – the answer is YES – or “fun idea….awesome that you thought to use your own money for that”! If your student asks to bring House swag ranging from bandanas, headpieces, etc. – the best response will be “do you think that’s enough or should you pack more?” THIS IS A BIG DEAL ON CAMPUS! Tuesday is also a Spirit Day.
This is a day when students WILL want to wear House shirts. The newly issued Tie-Dye shirts are welcome! Students will begin the day in jeans (please avoid rips/holes) and House shirts. They will be given time to change before competition begins. It’s fast, it’s furious, and it’s a TON of fun! If you’ve always wondered what happens during this time, please join us! We play in the FBC gym from 11:15 to 12:25pm on Tuesday the 14th! Not only will you see your students having a great time, you will see our wonderful staff engage in ways that reveals how much House Spirit they have. It’s a lot and often very humorous to see play out!!! 😊
