October 12 – 18 (Middle School)
Posted on: Oct 11, 2019
Class Shifts for the Day
Several Middle School areas are undergoing a deep cleaning, including our classroom HVAC systems, in an effort to cut down on humidity and some mildew in and around those spaces. Because this cleaning takes several days, we are scheduling most of it over fall break. Our vendor will need to begin their work the Wednesday before, October 16. Resultantly, classes for the following academic classrooms will meet in a different area on that Wednesday. Teachers will be in touch about the change for the day with students a: fourth grade classes, Mr. Stirling, Ms. Sacra, and Ms. Culley–as well as Ms. White and Mr. Myers’ offices.
Middle School Basketball Try-outs
Tryouts for basketball this year will take place on the following dates:
Girls Basketball (7th and 8th grade)
Monday, October 21, 2:30-3:30pm (MS Gym)
Wednesday, October 23, 2:30-3:30pm (MS Gym)
Players must attend both tryout dates, unless receiving prior approval.
We ask that parents do not attend tryouts, as we are trying to create an environment that is equal for everyone involved in the process. By not allowing outside spectators, the students are able to compete without any added pressure of parents watching and coaches are able to evaluate without any outside biases.
7th Girls – Kelly Jeffries
8th Girls – Brandon Johnson
7th Boys – Brock Morton
8th Boys – Sparky Grober
Tryouts will be taking place during the athletic period and all fall coaches are aware that any athlete trying out for basketball will be missing sports that day.
Basketball practices will begin on Monday, October 28 and the first game is Monday, November 11.
The 7th and 8th grade will have one competitive basketball team per grade, per gender. There will be 12 players selected per team; ten players will suit up each game and an additional two players will have the option of being a practice player for the year. The purpose of the practice player role is to allow a player to continue to develop one’s basketball skill and participate in each practice. All players who do not make the team(s) will have their choice of joining Wrestling, APT (athletic performance training), Dance, or Physical Education.
The Holland Hall basketball teams participate in the Pinnacle Conference and adhere to all OSSAA guidelines.
