Coaching Stipend Fund Raising Progress: It was great to see so many parents come out in the rain and attend the meeting last night. This year as an incentive to pay the $125 donation (click for donation form) for Track and Field, we are giving a free long-sleeved black cotton tee shirt to every family that contributes. We have pre-ordered the long-sleeved tee shirts which will be available on a first come first serve basis only to those who make the team donation.  They are not available to order otherwise. Donations made by credit card can be made by following this link.

We ask for donations from team member families to help pay our coaching staff and we were able to raise around $7300 towards our coaching stipend goal at the parent meeting. So far we have enough for approximately three stipends. The district provides four stipends but with a team the size of ours we need to raise funds for five additional coaches. With what we brought in last night we only need enough for two more stipends this is why your donation matters. Your son or daughter will appreciate wearing this cool shirt and representing the team so please consider helping out. Thanks in advance!

Separately, we will have available to order: short sleeved tee shirts, and hoodies that may be ordered through Sunday March 3rd before the ordering window closes.  Cotton tees will be $15, drift tees $20, and hoodies $40.  If you have any questions, please contact Kathryn Blankenburg at

BV Track Parent Meeting: We will be having our annual parent meeting on Tuesday, February 26 at 7:00 pm in the small gym at Bella Vista. This meeting takes about 45 minutes so you should be out quickly. It is important for all to attend especially considering our facilty issues right now.
