Greetings Corwin International Families!

The Hoops Magnet Madness Basketball Tournament is coming up this week.   Your diligence in signing up and arriving on time for tournament activities is critical for the event to be successful.

This event typical raises about $10,000 for PTO and is why we have never asked kids to sell items in school wide fundraisers, but we need your help.  Last year we had to cancel the event.  This year we have 26 teams registered from across Southern Colorado registered and the event is ready to go.  Now all we need are parent volunteers.

Volunteer jobs have been placed on Parent Booker and we still need at least 50 or 70 more parent volunteers than we currently have for the event.  We need concessions, clean up, door monitors, ticket takers and we especially need volunteers for scoring and time keepers. You may sign up for multiple shifts.  There are shifts on Friday, All day and evening on Saturday and all day Sunday.  Each shift lasts for 2 hours.  If you want to help but need a training course on how to score and run time clocks, a scoring/ time keeper training will take place On Thursday from 6pm to 7 pm at the school in the media center.  We need 6 score/time keepers per hour for the entire tournament.  If you know how to score we cannot emphasize enough how much we need your support this weekend.

The training for score books and time clocks for those who need training is on Thursday from 6;00 pm to 7 pm in the media center. If you are comfortable with scoring this training is optional.  Please call the office and ask for Mrs. Shue if you want to help score, need to be trained but cannot attend the training. 

A note requesting donations for the basketball tournament went home with your student on Friday.  This is PTO’s biggest fundraiser of the year.  PTO uses these funds to provide items for students like filed trips, technology and science equipment. Parent support is the only way these events are successful.  We need your donations and we need your time to volunteer for this event.  In addition, it is critical that you sign up for the shift for which you sign up.  By signing up you reserve the spot and no one else can sign up, so we will be short if you do not arrive.

We are looking forward to working with you this weekend.
