2020 Season Is Here4 September, 2019
It has been a couple of weeks, and I'm finally uploading the Parent Info presentation. I will be mailing it out by the end of today's meeting, as well. We have some upcoming demos that students should be looking at for outreach hours. An email went out with information and a request to respond. Several have already, and I thank you that have. For those that haven't, you should be looking at those dates.
Speaking of dates, today we will be looking at available Regionals for selection for our ravels. We won't be deciding today, just going over possibl options. AZ West hasn't been listed, yet, and I hear the AZ South is having a logistical issue, so may not happen this year.

Tomorrow is the first Parent Info meeting, which shall start at 8am at VAHS in the MPR. There is also a normal meeting for the team running from 8am to noon. I have updated the "Documents" page with this year's forms and handbook. The "Parent Info" page will be updated with this year's presentation after the meeting tomorrow. I will also email it to those parents I have on our email distribution list.
8 June, 2019
Our first official meeting for the 2020 season will be 7 August. This season, we are accepting 8th from all throughout the district. New members from 9 through 12th grades will need to be attending VAHS. Those members who have alreadybeen part of the team are grandfathered in.
