Fuller PTO e-news - Week of June 12, 2017

Hello Fuller Community!
It's hard to believe but it is the last full week of school!
The last day is next Tuesday June 20th - it's early release day.


Softball Update
The staff versus student softball game against the 7th graders last Thursday was a nail biter! The 7th graders had two powerful squads full of softball talent and energy, and they came close to beating the staff. Sadly, though, they just didn’t have enough force to get by the powerful, talented and still undefeated staff.

We’ll look forward to the rematch next year as you are 8th graders. Thank you to all the students who attended – both to play and as spectators. You’re all good sports!

The 8th grade game is Tuesday, June 13 from 2:45 until approximately 3:45pm. The sign-up sheet is outside of Mr. Cardarelli’s room and will be available until the end of Monday. Students will need to provide their own transportation home after the game or they may walk. Please remember for anyone signing up that you must be in good standing both behaviorally and academically to be eligible to play.
