New Booster Masthead 3

Booster News, November 2011
Dear Booster Friends,

The 2011 Churchill fall sports teams have enjoyed a solid winning season across the board. As the season begins to wind down, we're gearing up for the winter try-outs, practices and games.

I look forward to seeing the parents of our winter sports athletes at the upcoming Sports Night Meeting at the end of the month (the date will be set soon). I encourage you to "Join the Club," if you haven't already done so. Joining or renewing your annual Booster Club membership is critical to the success of the Booster Club, which provides significant supplemental funding to our Churchill teams. Please take advantage of our easy-to-use online membership registration.

For links and information to other important Booster activities and initiatives, please take a moment to read through this newsletter. We encourage you to attend our upcoming monthly meeting, this Wednesday, November 9 at 7 p.m. in Room 126. We are a dynamic and growing organization and we welcome new volunteers.

1. Booster Club Offers Sports Physicals to Athletes
bluepawprintongreencomp4wChurchill student-athletes who need physical exams to play winter and spring sports can get them at Winston Churchill High School this Thursday, November 10, between 6 - 8 p.m., across from the entrance to the main gym. Any Fall student-athletes who still need a physical may also attend.
The cost per physical is $30, with proceeds to benefit the Winston Churchill High School Booster Club.
Medical staff from Montgomery Orthopaedics will donate their time and expertise to conduct the physical exams and support Churchill athletics.
All forms required to participate in winter and spring sports will be available that evening at the registration desk. Students who are under 18 years of age should be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian so all forms can be signed and submitted at the time the physical exams are completed. 
Payments should be cash or check, made payable to “WCHS Booster Club.” Churchill will not accept credit card payments.
Important: This physical exam meets the requirements needed to play sports in state public schools, but it does not replace the comprehensive annual exams or well check-ups provided by your family physician.
To schedule an appointment, please contact Jim Edwards at or 301-980-2384.
