All junior high sports will hold their first practices on the first day of school, Thursday, Aug 23.  The activity shuttle bus will run that day at its normally scheduled time, leaving Paullina at approximately 5:00 PM.  JH students who plan to participate should bring clothes to wear for practice that day.  JH football players may wear indoor shoes that day.
JH practices on Thur, Aug 23, will consist mainly of handing out equipment for the respective seasons, but there may be some time for conditioning, so the participants should plan for that and wear practice attire.
