Middle School Swim Team End of Season Party - Still on for Today After School

We had a bit of chaos with the power outage at the high school this morning, everything is back up and running now and we got the okay to still have the middle school end of season swim party today.  Everything will remain the same, the bus will pick-up at each middle school like it did for practice, coaches will be on the bus, it will drop off at the high school, we will have the pizza/cake party, pass everything out (certificates, stats, pictures, cap refunds, etc), and play some games.  Everything will still finish up at 5:30pm, swimmers can be picked up in the high school North lot where we would return from practice to.  

For anyone not able to make it, we will be dropping off items at each middle school to be passed out through the office.  I want to thank you all again for a great first ever Mentor Middle School swim season!
