Weekly News (Sept 21-26)

Hello Panthers,


I just returned from our school’s first ever Pre-k to grade 12 assembly. As today is international Peace Day, we all gathered together to celebrate and recognize such a great cause. I was filled with a huge sense of pride as I watched so many of our swimmers singing and dancing as part of the day’s celebrations. We have such a talented bunch of kids on our team; in and out of the water.

We will continue this celebration on in to our practice times as the coaches will incorporate the number “21” and the peace theme into their practices today.

Happy Peace Day everyone!


Important Notes:


Patana Tiger Prawn Meet (this Saturday Sept. 26)

Last year I was incredibly happy with the level of participation we had at this meet. The ISB Panthers were represented by 27 eager 8 and under swimmers at our cross-town rivals first meet of the year. This year I am blown away to announce that we have 48 swimmers making the trek to Patana. Wow is all I can say! It is this kind of participation that makes a team successful. Thank you to all families for showing this level of commitment. Let's hope that your actions spill over to the rest of our meets this year!

I will email the entry report and program as soon as I get it from Patana. We have one 40-passenger bus leaving ISB at 7:00 am. I will also email the bus list with the program this week.
