Bear families,

I hope this message finds your family safe and healthy. We’re in an incredible time, unlike any other I’ve seen in nearly 30 years in education.
One of the activities we’ve chosen to participate in is the Character Challenge. The “challenge” is a weekly character based competition between football teams at the following schools: Auburn Mountainview, Ballard, Bellevue, Bonney Lake, Bothell, Kentridge, Lakewood, Liberty, Lincoln, Newport, O’Dea, Pasco, Selah, Tahoma, and Woodinville.
The competition includes simple weekly challenges, and is designed to keep the players connected in these difficult days. The week 1 challenge was to simply have the players make their bed each morning. Ideally the kids will post a picture on social media #wafbcharacterchallenge. The team has been divided into seven squads with each led by two seniors. Every week we will total the number of kids who completed the challenge, how many days they did it, and rank the teams each week. The school that “wins the week,” will be rewarded for their success and we have a sponsor who will provide prizes for the team that wins the overall competition.
Parents, here’s how you can help. If you have a current freshman or sophomore they should have been contacted by their group leader and given an explanation of the competition – the seniors also chose to add a pushup competition to their plan (competition just between the Tahoma squads). If your player hasn’t been contacted, email Coach Davis ( tdavis@tahomasd.us ) so we can see which squad he’s a member of and make sure the seniors leading his group have the correct contact information (text number).
Feel free to email me if you have questions. I appreciate your support on this as we try to keep the players connected in these uncertain times.

Players don't forget to strengthen your minds and bodies during this time away from THS and your team. Go for a run, do some calisthenics, prep for the SAT/ACT, do some yard work....
just stay active and productive.
You got this!

Coach Davis is recommending a book a week on leadership and this week book is:
"A Season of Life" by Jeffrey Marx"
