Mr. Holman's Weekly Parent Update 11/15/21

Dear Parents and Guardians:

It is fun to have our boys basketball season going now and to be competing interscholastically at the 7/8 level again. I appreciate your help and support as well.  For your convenience we will continue to simulcast all of our home events, including the 6th grade intramural scrimmages.  I have heard that these simulcasts are especially appreciated by extended family members who are too far away to join us.  Thank you to John Thill for doing a huge amount of work to make this possible! With Moscow High School winter sports starting up now we will be sharing the Bear Den with more programs.  Game and practice schedules are set but are also subject to change for a variety of reasons.  I will keep you posted weekly in this forum and will also send out special notices if practice and/or game schedules change.  Thank you for your patience and understanding!

Boys Basketball Games this week -  All of our basketball teams have games again this week.  Please see the schedule below and/or on our MMS website for more specific information.  Home games for the 7th and 8th Grade A and B teams are scheduled to take place in the Moscow High School gymnasium, accessible through the parking lot off of third street on the east end of the high school. Admission prices are $3 for adults and $2 for seniors and students without ASB cards.  Elementary aged or younger get in free. 6th grade scrimmages are scheduled in the Bear Den at this time. Important reminder:  Masks are required in the high school gym and in the Bear Den.  Food is not allowed.  We will be enforcing these rules very strictly.  

Basketball practices this week - 6th grade boys will practice Monday, Tuesday and Thursday this week, with scrimmages scheduled for Friday afternoon.  There is no practice for 6th boys on Wednesday.  B boys will practice Tuesday and Thursday as usual, but not Friday, and have games Monday and Wednesday.  A boys will practice Monday, Wednesday, and Friday, and have games Tuesday and Thursday.
