Lacrosse Preseason

laxfalconFINALThis year we will be holding a sort of lacrosse preseason beginning on March 26 at the Coastal Performance Training Center at 14 Thomas Point Road in Brunswick. This will give players an opportunity to practice indoors on turf until the fields are ready for use. The schedule is as follows:

  • 3/4 Boys on Monday, 3/26, 5:30-7:00 p.m.
  • 5/6 Boys on Friday, 3/30, 5:30-7:00 p.m.

After April Break, we will use a set practice schedule at Hunter Road Fields, 5:30-7:00 each evening. Due to this year’s numbers, we will have to switch our practice nights from last year. 5/6 Boys will practice on Mondays and Wednesdays. Everyone else will practice on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Field assignments TBD.

The first games of the season will be played on the weekend of April 28th. That schedule should be available soon, and will be posted here.

Extended School Days: April 2-6

I order to make up for school days missed this winter and not extend our year past Friday, June 22, the school board has voted to add one hour to the end of each school day during the first week of April. This will affect many of our after school programs, but should not affect adult or evening classes that begin at 5:00 or later. Affected classes will be listed below.

Laugh and Learn After Care will begin after school (one hour later than usual), but end at the scheduled time.

Dodgeball Extravaganza will start and end one hour later, meeting from 4:30-5:30 on April 3.

Gee’s Floor Hockey will meet from 4:15-5:30 each day (Monday, Tuesday, or Thursday). Each session will start with a snack time, so please send your kids with an extra snack that day.

Lacrosse preseason practices (5:30-7:00) will not be affected.

Tae Kwon Do classes for youth and adults will meet as scheduled.

Fundamentals of Chess (Open and Girls Only) will begin at 4:20 and end at 5:45 for the week.

Babysitter Training at FMS still has plenty of room available to register. The classes on April 5 and 6 will meet from 3:30- 6:00. Bring a snack! Please note that there is no school or class on April 13, and that the last day of the class (which meets Thursdays and Fridays) will be April 27.

Hippity Hop Dance and Spinning Sprouts will meet together for their parent showcase, to begin at 4:15 and end at 5:00.

Hip Hop Dance at DCS will meet from 4:15 to 5:15 on April 2.

Hip Hop Club 207 at FMS will NOT meet on April 5.

Unplugged: The Board Game Revolution will meet at the PORT form 3:30-4:30 on 4/3.

Teen Treks Club will meet at FMS (instead of the PORT) from 3:15 until 4:30. Room TBD.

Changes to Driver’s Education at FHS are to be determined.

Nor’easter heads nor’east

The storm that has been circling around Maine for more than 36 hours has finally made its way (mostly) into Canada, and we, being Mainers, seem to have weathered this one quite nicely. With that in mind, we WILL RUN many of our evening programs as scheduled. There are a few changes for this Pi Day (March 14), however:

The Falcon Girls Lacrosse Clinic will still meet from 5:30-6:30 tonight, but has been moved to the Freeport Middle School Gym.

Learning Lab classes and Conversational French II this evening have been cancelled.

Gentle and Moderate Yoga Classes this evening have also been cancelled. This one is due to an instructor illness, however, not inclement weather. Same net result, of course.

Other evening classes will run as scheduled, including Adult Recreational Basketball at FMS and Travel Sketchbook at FHS.

Let’s hope I don’t have to write another one of these until next year… π

Here we (don’t) go again!

Due to the nor’easter that has just arrived, we will be listing cancellations as they are confirmed.

All programs for Tuesday 3/13 will be cancelled. This includes youth and adult programs.

If there is no school on 3/14, all Wednesday youth after school programs will be cancelled. If we also decide to cancel any evening programs, we will announce it here.

If there is a delay, Laugh & Learn will be affected as set out in our Parent Handbook:

When the school district decides to open schools after their normal start time, there will be NO L&L before care, and preschool will run an abbreviated session. On these mornings Laugh and Learn preschool will open when Morse Street School opens. MSS usually opens at 8:35, therefore, when there is a 1-hour delay Laugh & Learn preschool will open at 9:35. Our half-day and full-day preschool sessions will begin at this time.

If there is a 2-hour delay, we will open at 10:35 and will only run our full-day preschool session (our half-day morning preschool session (8:45-11:45) will be cancelled).

Cancellations for 3/7 – 3/8

Due to the nor’easter arriving this evening, we will be listing cancellations as they are confirmed.

No Community Programs that meet directly after school on 3/7 (including Laugh & Learn After Care and Teen Treks) should be affected. You may choose to pick your child up early from these programs, but they will run until the last student is dismissed.

All evening programs on 3/7 will be cancelled. This includes: Falcon Girls’ Lacrosse Clinic and Gentle and Moderate Yoga Classes at MSS, Adult Basketball at FMS, and Travel Sketchbook and Conversational French at FHS.

There is no school on 3/8, and all Thursday programs are also cancelled.

Nothing Cancelled Yet

Temperatures have remained steady this morning, and we see no reason to cancel any basketball games this morning, so plan to play your games as scheduled this morning. Check back here periodically to see the status of Travel League games scheduled to begin after noon.

Update (12:15 p.m.): All games should be played as scheduled for 1/13. On Sunday, 1/14, all games at Westbrook High School have been moved to Westbrook Middle School.
