11th Annual March Madness

11th Annual March Madness
Beall ES Staff v. Parent Basketball Game
Friday, March 22, 2019 at Richard Montgomery HS, 7PM

Mark your calendars for Friday, March 22, 2019 as we are coming upon that time of year when the Beall ES Staff and Parents lace up their sneakers, pump up the basketballs, and try not to pull any muscles during the 11th annual Staff v. Parents basketball game. Everyone is invited to attend or get out on the basketball court for our always fun community building event.  As in years past, this event will also include performances to display our Beall students’ talents, including the hip hop club and chorus. Order your tickets with the order form here.

The planning committee is always looking for additional volunteers to assist in the event. We will need help with pre-planning and event day activities. If you want to help with the event, send an email to beall.basketball@gmail.com or check out the SignUpGenius for both adult and SSL volunteer opportunities. https://www.signupgenius.com/go/5080B4CA4AB2EABFC1-beall2

For those who are interested in participating as a member of the Parent’s team (both women and men), send an email to beall.basketball@gmail.com by February 22 to express your interest.  YOU MUST PROVIDE your name, Beall ES Child’s/Children’s name(s) and grade(s) and teacher’s name(s).  There will be a few scheduled practices prior to the big game. This event is very popular and due to the large number of parents (men) that wish to participate in the game, our "March Madness Selection Committee" will determine this year’s parent team roster.  In order to keep the parent team to a manageable group and to ensure a reasonable amount of playing time for each player, the Parents team will be limited to 10-12 men and 8-10 women.  Please understand that not everyone who expresses interest is guaranteed a spot on this year’s team. The March Madness Selection Committee is going to take into consideration the following for building the Parents team roster:

  • VOLUNTEERISM in Beall PTA (whether by you or your better half). This may include working at events or helping with administrative work (taking into account both past and current volunteering time up through the date when the team will be chosen) or helping at Beall ES (in classroom or in main office, etc.). So check the schedule and get out and volunteer
  • DIVERSITY (grades of children, race, ethnicity of player, etc.)
  • NEW FACES (looking to add new faces, so if you have played more than once already over the last 2 or 3 years, you may not be chosen depending on demand)

Again, it's going to be a fun community event so mark your calendar, don’t miss it and look for more details coming your way!  If you have any questions, please email beall.basketball@gmail.com. Thank you!
