FIELD TRIP THANK YOU FROM MR. VEDDER
I want to thank you for all of the work, effort, materials, time, and energy you put in today.
At every turn – in the beginning, when sixty of our kids were without a bus, in the middle, attempting to feed 240 eager teenagers, or near the end, when we fit every one of them into one final photo – you were all ready, and willing to help. You were positive and engaged the entire day, and I couldn’t have asked for a better set of adults to be with.
Today was a real testament to how lucky we are, as a staff, to have such a generous, flexible, and thoughtful community of parents. Thank you for all that you did and put in – I know that the staff, the kids, and I all appreciate it immensely. It was such a fantastic day.
NEXT CHINA TRIP DEADLINE
Thank you to all that handed in applications to meet the Early Bird deadline.
There is still time to think about the China trip. The next deadline is Tuesday, May 15 ($800 rate).
Hand in paper applications to the Main Office.
HEADED TO EL CERRITO HIGH? – THE MOUNTAIN BIKING TEAM WANTS YOU!!
The Mountain Bike Team had their fourth league race at Granite Bay on April 15th, placing third just behind Berkeley, and retaining overall second place in league. El Cerrito is up against much bigger teams – we had 20 race while Berkeley had 62! The last league race is less than two weeks and the team will need to be strong to clinch the second place spot!
The course was 6 miles with over 500′ of climbing, and is considered the most technical NorCal (league) course. There was lots of winding single track and several rock obstacles to clear. Our riders did great! Freshman and Sophomore Girls did 2 laps; Sophomore Boys and JV raced for 3 laps, and Varsity Boys 4.
The team is looking for more riders next season and girls are highly encouraged to join. We have a strong group of girls and want to add several more. No experience is necessary – the team trains it’s athletes for fitness and bike handling. Please talk to anyone on the team or text coach John (510-967-1101) and check out the team’s website https://echsmtb.com/.
