Middle School Sports are Cancelled: Both the middle school baseball game and track meet scheduled for this afternoon are cancelled.

Correction to the school calendar: There is no Upper School Spring Athletic Awards night this evening. It was included in the Weekly Update last week in error. The teams have elected to hold their own celebrations. Please contact the individual coaches for dates and times.

New Volleyball Coach: Concordia Prep is pleased to announce that Mrs. Kara Baney will be the new volleyball coach beginning next fall. Mrs. Baney will be joining us from Concordia University in Nebraska where she has coached volleyball at the middle, high school, and club level.
