Parking will be available in the lot by this door. Upon entering the school, more signage will be posted as a guide to the pool area.
3.) GRE Meet Team Shirt Colors: Saturday will be red and Sunday will be black or gray.

CGAC Halloween Party – Huge thank you to Crystal Crist for putting together a great party for our swimmers last week!
Senior Team Billing - There was a billing system malfunction for Senior swimmers only last month. None of the Senior swimmers were billed for October training fees on 10/1 as they should have so their November bill will show October training fees due Nov 1 (but no training fees are assessed in November). Email Chris Cuadros at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
Swim Meet 101 Meeting Reminder - Swim Meet 101 Meeting is Wednesday November 1st at 6:00 pm in room 352 at CGHS. This meeting is for any parent who wants to learn what to expect as you work your first swim meet. Job descriptions will be explained as well as how to sign up to work and what you need to know as you attend your first swim meet as a parent.
Jingle Bell Job Sign-Ups Reminder - JOB SIGNUPS WILL BE TURNED ON WEDNESDAY NOV 1ST AT APPROXIMATELY 6:30 PM. As you sign up to work, we do ask that you not have small children with you so that you are able to focus on your duties and also to ensure the safety of your children as the meets can get quite busy. Also, if your swimmer is working a spot for you, they are only allowed to do deck positions and must be at least 14.
Jingle Bell Gift Card Sign-Ups – Sign-ups for Gift cards has been turned on. Remember that you may only donate a maximum of 2 gift cards per season.
