POLAR EXPRESS: Please see the attached flyer to order your tickets now for the Polar Express Pajama Party for children and their families. The special showing of the classic holiday film will be held in the Belmont High School Café on Friday, December 4 at 6:00 pm. The event will also include cocoa and snacks, and other special surprises. Children are encouraged to attend in their pajamas, socks and/or slippers. This magical holiday event is sponsored by the BHS Earth, Ecological and Environmental Stewardship students as a fundraiser for their spring trip to Olympic National Park in Washington. If you are not familiar with the Polar Express story, it is about a doubting boy who is waiting to hear the sound of reindeer bells from Santa's sleigh on Christmas Eve. Instead, he hears the roar of a steam engine outside his window. The conductor welcomes him aboard the train for an extraordinary journey to the North Pole. There, he receives a gift only those who BELIEVE in Santa can experience. Rated PG. Link to official movie trailers http://movieweb.com/movie/the-polar-express/official-trailer-2/
ATHLETICS: Boys JV and Varsity basketball tryouts will be TODAY and Tuesday (November 23 and 24) from 3pm - 6pm and Wednesday from 8am - 11am.
