Greetings New Mark families,
First please text 81010 and in the body type @newmarksw and hit send. This will give you text updates to all emailed info. Canceled practices, meetings etc. Its a valuable tool many schools use as well. Have your swimmers do it too!
FIRST DAY OF PRACTICE, PARENT/FUNDRAISER MEETINGS WILL BE THURSDAY MAY 31ST. PLEASE BE PREPARED FOR DRYLAND. The course of each practice during the first few weeks depends on water temperature and unpredictible weather. ALL AGE GROUP PRACTICES WILL BE HELD AT NEWMARK BROOKINGS THE FIRST DAY ONLY. So if you are scheduled at Willow Farms, just the first day meet at New Mark Brookings for the meeting.
We will have a brief meeting regarding expectations etc. We will have handouts as well. Its alot of info to take in and we will have several handouts. We will also have our fundraiser kick off that day. New Mark Brookings pool is still in desperative need of several rehab items before we can host a meet there. Please plan on being in attendance with your swimmer(s) at this first practice.
Our fundraiser this year will be through Snap Raise. For more information about Snap Raise, please follow the link below to hear how it works and their mission.
