According to the Pope Athletics Website, the tomorrow’s Athlete Physical Night was cancelled some time today. Thanks Mrs. Tiangco for letting me know. Parents will still need to complete the online Athlete Registration through their ParentVUE account, get a form for the doctor to complete at a physical exam, and upload the form through your ParentVUE account.
The Shooks have very kindly offered to host our end of season pool party at their house at 2767 Whitehurst Drive, Marietta, GA 30062 from 6:30 PM to 9:30 PM on Saturday April 23rd. The pool will be open, so bring a swimsuit and towel if you are interested.
All current and former Pope fencers as well as their parents and siblings are invited. Please pass the invitation on to any fencing alumni you are in touch with.
There will be a short parent meeting at the party to plan for next season and we strongly suggest that parents of all fencers who will be returning to attend.
Adults are welcome to bring adult beverages (which will be kept away from the fencers). Note that glass containers need to kept away from the pool area.

All Pope students who want to participate in athletic activities (including fencing) next school year must complete an online form and upload the results of an athlete physical exam.
To make this easy, Pope has arranged for an Athlete Physical Night on Thursday 21 April from 3:30 to 5:30 in the Cafeteria and Media Center. The cost is $10 per athlete and in addition to having the physical exam, computers will be available for you to complete the online form. The administration has provide this flier with information about the event.
We have just been told by the administration that because of the limited time available, anyone wanting to participate must sign up for one of the 24 available 5-minute slots. To sign up, click on the following link: signupgenius.com/go/10c0f45a9a62fa3ff2-physicals.
If you will be fencing next year please take advantage of this opportunity, it is by far the easiest way of taking care of this. The administration requires that fencers complete this process before they are allowed to take part in practice or competition.
Slots are already filling up. Please sign up today!
