8.19.2015 Jr. Griffins Fall Sports

You can find all registration information for the remaining fall sports including Jr. Griffin Soccer (Boys/Girls), Instructional Soccer, Hatchling Soccer, and Flag Football on our website under Athletics. If you are in need of the Sr. Griffin registration forms they can still be found online. Registrations can be dropped off in the office or sent to school with your child once school begins. See below for additional updates:

1. There will be an Athletic Orientation and Registration Night on Wednesday, 9/2 at 6:30pm in the PMA Cafeteria. Come and learn more about PMA Athletics! This event will give you an opportunity to meet the Athletic Director and learn more about the specific programs that will be offered this year. This night is geared for parents that are new to PMA or are still looking to sign up their child for Fall Sports.

2. VOLUNTEERS – Please e-mail me, sgaudreau@pmaschool.org, if you can volunteer to coach any of our sports. We need a lot of help to make these programs successful so please let me know as soon as possible if you can help. Please make sure you contact the office and complete the volunteer training/background check so that you can volunteer.

3. Additional information about each sport (what to bring etc.) will go out as the first date of competition gets closer and registration is closed. We are in need of coaches for our Jr. Griffin girls soccer team so that we can set the schedule accordingly.

4. If you have a child playing Sr. Griffin sports, you should be getting an e-mail soon from me or the coach with additional details on the start of practice.

Any additional questions please e-mail me at sgaudreau@pmaschool.org.


6.1.2015 Sr. Griffin Fall Sports

We held a meeting with grades 3 – 7 to discuss sign ups for our Sr. Griffin Fall Sports ONLY for next year.  You should have received the attached forms in your child’s shuttle. They are also attached below. We are holding sign-ups now because these sports have a start date of August 31, 2015.  A couple of clarifications below:

1.  Cross Country is for grades 4 – 8.

2.  Sr. Griffin Soccer (Boys and Girls) are for grades 6 – 8 only.

3.  All three sports will be participating in the Tri-County League (Division 4).  This is an exciting change for our soccer programs!
4.  We will still be offering sports for the younger grades as we have done in the past.  Sign-ups for Jr. Griffin Soccer, Hatching Soccer, Instructional Soccer, and Flag Football will start during the first week of school.


Please e-mail me at sgaudreau@pmaschool.org if you have any questions.

12.25.2014 Jr. Mites Face Each Other

JrMites

December 21, 2014 was an exciting basketball game for the Presentation of Mary community. The Junior Mites Maroon and White teams squared off against each other and the fans were on their feet! It was a tale of two halves. The first half was dominated by the White team who owned rebounding and shot great from the floor. The White team had a significant lead at half time with a score of 14-4. Out comes the Maroon team for the second half with tenacious defense and chipped away at the score. The fans were cheering as school mates passed the ball around to each other and kept the energy alive. All Griffins fought hard and the Maroon team made a comeback with a 19-14 victory. All players showed great sportsmanship in both victory and defeat. It was a great day for PMA Athletics!

2015 SEASON INFO NIGHT Letter


 

12.4.2014 Basketball Web Store

PMA is excited to announce that we are running a PMA Basketball Web Store for the next week to give everyone an opportunity to purchase some PMA Basketball gear for the season.  Orders ship directly to the customer.  We will be doing this during each of our sports seasons as a way to promote our school and become more consistent with regards to what we are ordering for our teams.  We will be running a store for Cheerleading in January as well.

The link to the store is below.  The store is only open for a week, so you need to act fast!  Items will be shipped to you directly in time for Christmas if you are thinking about gifts. These items are a great way to show PMA Pride at PMA practices and games!  Just a reminder that any item purchased cannot be substituted for your child’s gym uniform.  

I look forward to meeting everyone out at a game or practice this winter!

Thanks,
Steve Gaudreau
Athletic Director

10.29.2014 Jr. Mites Basketball

Please have your child bring (all of this stays in their locker during school):
Basketball with their name on it (28.5″ is what they use)
Sneakers
Water bottle with their name on it
Comfortable clothes – shorts and t-shirt work best.  On gym days, they should just wear their gym uniform.  Please remember: less time changing means more time to start their homework. 
Dismissal Procedure:
1)  Players go down to the locker room with their class and get ALL of their things (coats, lunch boxes, etc.)
2)  Players then come back up to first floor and report to Mrs. Ribeck’s room (last year’s Art Room).
3)  They will have an opportunity for a light snack and get some homework done while players take turns changing.
4)  The teams will be escorted down to the gym for practice.
Picking Up Your Child:
1)  If your child is to go into After Care, please make sure they know that.
2)  In order to not clog up the Pickup Circle, Sr. Maria has asked all afterschool activities to have parents wait in the parking lot.
3)  When you see your child come out, you may proceed to leave the parking lot and enter the Pickup Circle.  OR you can meet them on foot and take them back to your car.
Please pass this info along to any/all who may pick up your child.
Attendance:
1)  Practice time is very important for team success, as it affects not only physical progress, but just as importantly, the team’s cohesiveness.  Also, coaches volunteer their very valuable time to plan these practices.

Please make attendance a priority and let the coaches know when your child cannot attend (Mike Barnhart:  puckputt@comcast.net ;  Paul Soucy:  pksoucy@myfairpoint.net ).


10.26.2014 Catholic Invitational Meet

We had many victories at our 11th annual Cross Country Invitational meet this past weekend. The 4th & 5th grade girls took 1st place and our 6th – 8th grade girls took 2nd in their respective races.  The boys did great as well! Most runners had Personal Bests and many Top 10 medals went to our own team. If you see a PMA Cross Country runner, give them a high five!
