SPORT PHYSICAL
For those participating in sports during the 2016-2017 school year and not yet in 7th grade next year, or choose not to go to the physical on May 12, we are sending home the packet today that needs to be completed before practice starts next August. You do not need to wait until August to do the physical! Anytime after May 1 of 2016, you can complete the physical for the next school year according to Montana High School Association. We encourage you to do so this spring and turn in the forms to avoid missing any practice time when it begins in August. A student is not allowed to practice in any sport until a physical has been completed.

PIANO FOR SALE
We have an old piano, built in 1904, that needs a new home. It is playable, but needs quite a bit of regulation and work to be at its best (estimated by our piano tuner, John Dorr, to be around $800). Pin block is still in good shape, and holds tuning fairly well. Beautiful old wood and very heavy! I picked it up as a free piano about 8 years ago when I was taking a course on
piano tuning and restoration. I replaced the key tops and cleaned it and tuned it, but not much beyond that. Its been played a lot by us and our kids, but it really needs to be fixed up by a professional. Call Peter or Molly Wilson, 733-6815
