The end of season pool party will be at 6 PM on Saturday April 22 at the Shook’s house at 2767 Whitehurst Drive, Marietta, GA 30062. Thanks to the Shooks for once again generously offering to host the party.
All Pope fencers and their parents as well as fencing alumni and their parents are welcome.
There will be a short parent meeting during the party, followed by the awarding of letters to fencers who earned them, as well as gifts for our graduating seniors.
We sent out a list of food and drink items that we would like fencers to provide. Several of you have already responded with what you will bring (thank you). The list below is what we still need. Please reply all to the e-mail when you decide what to bring.
We now have almost everything we need. If you want to know what you can bring, please call Mrs. Allison.
The Pope administration requires all fencers to complete the Cobb County Athletic Registration process every year (so returning fencers will need to do this again). The league will not allow fencers to compete in tournaments unless they have completed the process.
You can complete the process for the 2017-18 school year beginning on 1 April 2017. I strongly suggest that current fencers who are not graduating this spring take care of this in April. You will need will need access to your ParentVUE account to do this. If you have trouble accessing ParentVUE, please contact the Pope ParentVUE coordinator Lisa Squier. Instructions for for registering are in the Athletic Registration Parent Guide.
Part of the registration process is to have a physical exam done by a medical professional. BestCare Now Urgent Care (in front of Walmart on Johnson Ferry) is offering a special price of $25 (with $5 going to Pope) for sport physicals on April 14-16 and 21-23. See this flyer for details.
Because of the construction at Pope, summer camp will be at Tritt Elementary School.
Camp will be from 9 AM to 3 PM on Monday 10 July through Thursday 13 July. This is a great opportunity to get ready for the 2017-18 season. For details and to register for camp, please go to the Summer Camp page.
