POWDERPUFF FOOTBALL GAME
This Friday, November 18th
on the Football Field at 2:10pm
ADMISSION IS FREE
Bundle up and come on down! Everyone is welcome to attend. Concession will be available for purchase (so bring a few bucks).
WHAT IS POWDER PUFF: A fun and festive football game in which teams composed entirely of WHS girls (all grades) take each other on. It's FLAG football (not tackle)! It's JUST one day! It's BONDING! It's FUN! It's FIERCE! It's Friday, November 18th!
I WANT TO PLAY!: You must be a Westhill student. You do NOT need ANY football knowledge, only a willingness to "give it a go!" If you have not yet joined your grade-level team, you may either contact the coaches (see bottom of email), or come to an info session directly afterschool THIS MONDAY 11/14, in room 432.
I WANT TO CHEER: You must be a Westhill student. You do not need any cheer knowledge, only a desire to jump around and get the crowd hyped. And the ability to put together a cheer-worthy outfit. See Ms. Tobin in 432 for more info. Traditionally, the cheer teams for PP are composed of ALL BOYS. But we do what we want, so if you're interested in cheering your grade on, see me!
I WANT TO REF: No, you don't. You really really don't. These girls are MEAN. Mr. Petrone and Mr. Page reffed for one year, and said "never again." It's that bad. Still interesed? Fool. Come see Ms. Tobin in room 432 afterschool on Monday. Any interested parents? You need only be available on Friday 11/18. Parents, if yes, email ktobin@StamfordCT.gov
We hope to see everyone AT the big game! All interested players, cheerleaders and refs - see you THIS Monday, DIRECTLY afterschool! Room 432!
Ms. Tobin, "PP Commish"
