March Madness 2018

10th Annual March Madness Basketball Game
Beall ES Staff vs. Parents
Friday, March 16th, 2018 at Richard Montgomery HS, 7:00 PM

Mark your calendars for Friday, March 16, 2018! We are coming upon that time of year again when the Beall ES Staff and Parents lace up their sneakers, pump up the basketballs and try not to pull any muscles getting ready to head to the basketball court for our always fun, community-building 10th annual Staff vs. Parents basketball game!  As in years past, this event will also include other performances to display our Beall students' talents.

 We already have a few volunteers to assist in the planning and running of this event which is always much appreciated. We will be actively recruiting additional volunteers in the coming weeks, but in the meantime, free to send an email to [email protected] or visit to volunteer to help with this event to ensure its great success.  We will need help with preplanning and event day activities.

For those who are interested in participating as a member of the Parents' team (both women and men), send email to [email protected] to express your interest.  YOU MUST PROVIDE YOUR NAME, BEALL ES CHILD’S/CHILDREN’S NAME(S) AND GRADE(S) AND TEACHER’S NAME.  Every year, this event is very popular and due to the large number of parents (mainly men) that desire 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 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 to be on the team is guaranteed a spot on this year’s team. The March Madness Selection Committee is going to take into consideration the following in composing the parents' team:

  • 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, 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, chances are you may not be chosen, depending on demand). 

The Parents' team needs lots of female players to match up against all the wonderful female Beall staff.  If it's been awhile since you've picked up a ball or never played before, don't worry!  This year there will be several opportunities to learn basketball fundamentals on Sunday mornings in February.

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