Intramural Basketball for 2nd and 3rd graders

St. Charles Borromeo is happy to announce that we will offer the intramural basketball program for students in 2nd and 3rd grades. We would like to get team and schedule information out before Christmas break and need your help returning this permission consent form in a timely fashion.

We will be playing by Minnesota State High School League rules with a number of youth modifications. The baskets will be lowered to 8.5 feet, which will bring the free-throw line closer to the basket and help develop proper shooting form and give them more opportunities for success.  The fee for this program is $10.00, payable to the St. Charles Athletic Department.

The season generally runs from early January through mid February. Practices and games will usually be held on Friday nights (this will be determined by the number of players we have sign up).  There may be a few exceptions to this routine, however, we will limit them as best we can.  Once we know the number of players that have signed up, we will be able to determine the schedule for the season.  All of the coaches are volunteers who spend a great deal of time teaching your child/children about the game of basketball.  The success of this program is largely due to the wonderful commitment of parent volunteers. (All coaches must meet the essential 3 volunteer requirements as stated by the archdiocese:  up-to-date background check, code of conduct, and safe environment training.)

The purpose of this school sponsored program is to teach the students basic basketball skills.  It will allow them the opportunity to have some fun, be active, and compete with their peers in an atmosphere where sportsmanship will be emphasized.  This experience will allow them to develop solid fundamentals and learn what it means to be part of a team.

If you would be interested in coaching or co-coaching a team, please indicate that in the appropriate space provided.  If you have any further questions, please contact me at 612-787-1145 or tcarpenter@stchbs.org.  Thank you!

Sincerely,

Mr. Tony Carpenter & the IM Basketball Staff

Lego League starting up at St. Charles

Dear St. Charles Parents,

We want to give our students every opportunity to become great scientists and engineers. If you are interested in this as well, there is a way you can help.

We will be starting a Lego League competition team for grades 4-8 next year. The team consists of 10 students who will build a robot to complete a set of tasks. The team will also identify a real-world engineering problem, propose a solution to that problem, and create an inventive presentation to convey the problem and the solution to members of the community impacted by the problem. The team will work on its robot and presentation over the course of 10 weeks in the fall and then will compete against other teams at a regional tournament in late November or early December.

Check out this link to see what the League is all about. There are currently more than 600 teams in the state, most of which are affiliated with a school.

We have one coach, but the kids need additional coaches and volunteers to make the program work. If you have a science or engineering background, your help would be greatly appreciated. But you don’t need an engineering background to help. Simply being present at the meetings to supervise and encourage the kids will help. We will also need help with fundraising and organizing snacks.

We will be holding an informational meeting for parents interested in volunteering on April 5th at 6:30 PM. Please come and help us get this great program started at St. Charles. Please contact me with questions: Ted Magee at tmagee@wck.com.
