Other Notes

We will be using Twitter again this year for practice updates and changes. This is the best way to change or cancel practice at the last minute and make sure that everyone knows about it. When you sign up properly, you will get a text message sent to your phone with the updates. I will still send out emails, but I can do Twitter from my phone anywhere, I can only send the emails from a computer. Please logon to Twitter, create an account, and follow NPUpdates.



You can always get in touch with me by email at I check my email daily usually so you can expect a response within a day or so.  Or by phone at the office Mondays and Wednesdays from 10-4 at 636-891-6634.
