Again, I'm 12 hours late on posting an FYI, my sincerest apologies. Last week's football game was an interesting one. We hit major traffic going into the downtown and spent a solid hour sitting in the left lane of 70 West. Olentangy Orange was gracious enough to provide the SSB for the game. If you have an opportunity to thank them, please do.
This Friday's game is at St. Francis DeSales. It's location is also in a tough spot of Columbus. I caution everyone to check traffic when planning to attend the game.
Huge shout out to uniform volunteers Vanessa and Katie for retrieving the faded raincoats from the cleaners. With the band absences and use of the faded coats they were able to provide an additional layer for the kids. I should also take a second recognize the efforts of all those who've volunteered to help with uniforms this season. It's a huge undertaking and greatly appreciated by everyone. Thank you.
The students did much better this past Friday dressing for the weather. I would continue to encourage students to wear long black socks so that they can tuck in their layer under the purple bibbers into their black socks.
