Groundbreaking Ceremony

The first day of construction that our Families, Board of Trustees, Administration, and many Tiger Faithful have looked forward to has finally arrived! On March 9, 2017 at 2:00 p.m. we are going to hold the groundbreaking ceremony for our new building project. We want to invite all of you, voters, parents, grandparents, and Tiger Fans to attend the ceremony.
Our plan is to have our entire student body participate. We will be having nine individuals handling shovels to be the first to “BREAK GROUND”. Those nine shovels will represent: local government, administration, board of trustees, and one student from the high school, middle school, elementary school, and one student representing the Amsterdam school. Both the Tiger band and the choir will be part of the entertainment. We will also take time to recognize some key individuals who have been very involved with this project from the very beginning.
We want this to serve as another thank you to all of the people who participated in the election process. This is going to be such a welcome addition to our school and community. At the ground-breaking ceremony, We will have plans available for viewing and our entire project team on hand to answer questions.
I hope you mark March 9th at 2:00 p.m. on your calendar. Please take some time, stop by, and help kick off this project off the right way. We are very proud of the direction we are heading and just like we send our teams off to tournament or playoff games, we want to rally our community to begin our construction project with a lot of enthusiasm and momentum.  
Finally, on March 6th at 6:00 p.m. Mr. Lynch and Mr. Harvey are going to have a meeting with any parent whose children may be interested in forming a Softball program for girls and a Wrestling program for boys. This will be an informational meeting to discuss issues relating to those two programs. As we continue to grow, I think it is important to look at offerings that give more of our students a chance to participate. Three Forks is considering the same thing and there is a chance we could get started with these programs by co-oping for a couple of years until things are established.
A lot is happening. It is a great time to be a Manhattan Tiger!
Roll On Tigers!!
