Dear Parents,

We're looking for a few good women (you really don't actually need to be 'good' just willing to participate!) We are looking for more participants in the Monsignor Smyth Golf tournament. Last year we had our most successful golf event ever and I don't recall a single woman golfer. (I apologize if you were there and I missed you.) This year we want to get more men AND more women playing. I've been able to round up one so far (but she lives in the same house as me so it wasn't that hard) so we will be increasing the number of women but please consider participating. I know that Mitch has spoken with a number of women over the years and people have expressed some interest. Make this the year that you commit and come out and play. It's a great day and a great way to support the school. The link is open...please consider clicking it and being a part of it.

Drop off and pick up reminders:

Chevy Chase Parkway drop off- please do not park and drop your child off near the entrance. The main entrance is only for a quick drop off. If you are going to park, pull up to the alley near the apartment building, park, and walk back AND please no U-TURNS on Chevy Chase Parkway.

Blacktop drop off and pick up- Please be mindful of traffic on Western and do not block the eastbound lanes. In the morning and the afternoon- only use the alley that goes to Quesada. Do not use the alley to Chevy Chase Parkway.
