Smart Card Fund Raiser: If you have played a sport this year, you are aware of our Smart Card Fundraiser. We are asking all athletes to bring in $45. In return, you will be given 3 Smart Cards each worth $15 to sell. The district does not provide us with an athletic budget, so all of the proceeds are going into an athletic fund. This fund is being used for facility rental, equipment, and meet fees. If you are on the Women's Team, please bring $45 to Coach Louis by March 8. If you are on the Men's Team, please bring $45 to Coach Motta by March 8. Our first meet is on March 8th, you must pay by this date to be able to compete on the team. If you have any questions about Smart Cards, please contact Mr. Harned at Kelly.Harned@mnps.org
Parking Lot Fundraiser : We are also going to have a parking lot fund raiser on March 6. I will need about 10 volunteers (athletes) and 2 parent volunteers to help out. Please email me if you are interested. The money we raise for this is going to help us buy hurdles.
The Hume-Fogg Blue Knights Girls Basketball team lost Monday's District Tournament Semi-Final game against the MLK Royals by a score of 49-30. High Scorer was Cydnee Burnam with 9 points.
