ATTENTION ALL PRESENT AND FUTURE NAPLES HIGH SCHOOL ATHLETES
If you plan on participating in any sport at Naples High School during the next school year (or even working out at Naples HS during the summer) you MUST have a current physical on file at the school.
Naples High School will host FREE Physicals on Saturday, April 18, beginning at 8:00 AM in the Naples high School cafeteria.
Boys’ physicals will be given from 8:00 until 8:55 AM and Girls’ physicals will be given from 9:00 until 9:55 AM. Only NHS athletes, or prospective NHS athletes from feeder middle schools, may attend. NO boys arriving after 8:55 AM will be seen and NO girls arriving after 10:00 AM will be seen.
Even if you HAVE a current physical right now, it’s a good idea to get a free one on the 18th so it doesn’t expire either before your sport begins or ends.
Both the Physical Form and a Waiver of Liability Form must be filled out in advance and in full (health history and signed by students and parent/guardian) in order for you to be admitted on April 18th. The forms are available HERE or in the NHS activities office in Building One.
PROJECT GRADUATION HELP NEEDED FOR THE CLASS OF 2015
Project Graduation is a very important event for all Graduates accross Collier County. For those who are not familiar with this committee, it was formed 30 years ago after previous years of injury and deaths of graduate students following graduation parties. Since it's inception, there have been no graduate accidents in Collier County following the night of Graduation. The YMCA plays host in a secured and safe enviroment.
This year is the 30th annual event and guaranteed to be the biggest one yet with all the renovations made to the YMCA. The biggest draw will be the action packed activities such as Laser Battle, Bull riding, jousting, rock wall climbing and many others. We have many venders that provide food and beverages all night long. Drawings for Prizes, such as a car lease, $1,000.00 cash, and many others for those that attend (although we're still working on the car lease for this year).
Naples High is responsible for prizes at this event. WE NEED VOLUNTEERS to work throughout the night or to take a shift. Parents of Freshman or Sophmore students, individual or couples, Should really consider working as a committee chair and be willing to take up this event for next year. I will walk them through the process next year, although there is not much to it. We are also in need of prizes, new and unused, that graduating seniors would want.
