One of our big goals for this fall is to make sure we keep the Turkey Bowl (a tradition at Lane and a major fundraiser for the athletic department).  If you are unaware, the students buy tickets to attend the students vs. faculty football game right before Thanksgiving break.  They get signed out of 6th, 7th, and 8th period to attend.  In the past, a lot of students have just left and not attended the game.  The administration and athletic department do not want this to be the case. We need to make sure the students are being ushered into the stadium.  It was suggested that we get parents to help.  I am reaching out to the PTSO and I am asking all coaches to reach out to the parents in their respective programs.  Our goal is 70 parents.

The date will either be Friday, November 21st or Tuesday, November 25th.  All that would be asked is that you show up by 12:30 to receive your assignments, stand post at your doorway or stair way and usher students to the correct exits (they will know where to go, we just don't want them sneaking out).  After the building is clear for students that have bought tickets, you are welcome to attend the game or just head home.  We should be done by 1:00 at the latest.  

Please let Nick Logalbo ( know if this is something you may be interested in.
