Welcome to Hauser PTO’s first 1st Friday Feature of the 2015-2016 school year. On the first Friday of each month we feature a topic of interest/confusion/mystery to Hauser parents and we send it to you via our Feedblitz. Today we’re featuring Hauser intramurals (IMs).

What are they? When do they happen? Do I need to sign up my child? These are just some of the questions we’ve heard from parents about IMs. We got the skinny from Mr. Burke, who is Hauser’s Athletic Director.

First, IMs are a fun, non-competitive way for students to play a sport and meet new people. IMs are grade-specific, so on days that 7th graders have intramurals, only 7th graders can attend. For the most part, each grade will have intramurals once a week throughout the year (there will be weeks when there are no intramurals based on school breaks, holidays, etc.).

During IMs, students will play whatever sport they are learning in their PE classes, so it will change throughout the year. There is no need to sign up ahead of time – any well-behaved student is welcome. IMs are held right after school until 4:15pm, and the teachers will meet them in the LARGE GYM and either keep them there or take them outside depending on the sport and weather.

Athletic attire is recommended, and wearing a gym uniform is an option. Students must wear athletic shoe only, no open toed footwear will be allowed.

** New this year: students who are on a Hauser sports team will have a study hall with their coaches for the hour while the intramurals are going on, unless the student wants to participate in intramurals for that day. **

The schedule, as of today, is posted below. Students will also hear about IMs during their PE classes, during the daily announcements, and via the white board outside of the locker rooms. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact Mr. Burke at burket@district96.org.

Have a great Friday everyone!
