Dear Parents of Middle School Boys,
It is that time again to begin preparing for the basketball season. Coach Hamilton is returning as coach for the boy’s team. We will have one boy’s team for our school. Because we will only have one team, our 6-7-8 grade will play on one 8th grade team.
Our practice times and location will be as follows:

All practices will be held at Greiffenstein Elementary School – located at 1221 E Galena. Directions to Greiffenstein from Holy Savior Catholic Academy: take I-35 south towards south Wichita toll booth. Take “Exit 2” and turn right on south Hydraulic. At Fortuna, take a left. Turn right on Pattie. At Galena, turn right. Greiffenstein is on your left.
Our first practice will be Tuesday, October 24. Please be sure that your child has their sports physical for this year. As always, grades are an important part of being a student athlete, that being said, students must maintain good grades and stay on top of their school work.
