Updated basketball announcement from our
Athletic Director, Jennifer Graves
HS Girls Basketball practice has begun. Practice starts at 8th period and will end at 4:00 p.m. until Soccer, Cross Country and Volleyball ends. As the fall sports end, practice will be extended to 5:00 p.m.
HS Boys Basketball practice will begin at 6:00 a.m. daily once the Cross Country and Soccer season ends. Coach will be contacting any boys not currently in a sport to set up workouts between now and then.
MS Girls Basketball practice will begin Monday, October 28 at 7:30 a.m.
MS Boys Basketball practice will begin Monday, November 4 at 7:30 a.m.
All physicals should be done and turned in before these dates for any athletes who did not participate in the fall sports. Also, you need to be in attendance at the first practice. We will not be adding anyone to the roster after the season is underway. We currently have quite a few signed up for each team. If cuts need to be made or "B" teams established, the coach will explain that to the athletes on the first day of practice. If you have any questions, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Looking forward to a great season!

A NOTE FROM MRS. IBERA
Texas law mandates vision and hearing screening for students in PK4, Kinder, 1st, 3rd, 5th and 7th grade as well as students in other grades who are new to First Baptist Academy this school year.
I will conduct vision and hearing screenings during the week of Oct. 22-Oct. 29. Parents of students who pass will receive a letter stating so. Parents of students who fail two vision screenings or two hearing screenings will receive a referral letter from the school nurse recommending a more comprehensive exam by an eye doctor, audiologist, or physician.
