    Coach’s Corner 


    June has arrived and with it, summer is beckoning as we head towards the end of a school year unlike any that any of us have ever known.   Teachers, administrators, staff, students and families have a lot to proud of, as I believe we have all risen to the occasion and the challenges which the covid virus has put upon us.   I personally want to thank everyone for their efforts --- they are very much appreciated.   

    Of course we don't know how next fall will actually look yet, but I am optimisitc that there will be less washing of hands, wearing of maskes and playing games where students can actually tag each other.   A little less Google Classroom would be okay as well.

    On a PE front - stay healthy and active over the summer.   Swim, ride bikes, walk dogs - get outside and have a terrific time.   And try to make it a terrific time for someone else - Mom, Dad, brother, sister, friend, dog - whatever you can do to help someone else usually comes back to you.  Also, I we wish to bid a fond farewell to Riccardi's Coach Suttmeier.   I have worked with Coach S. for 12 years and he is truly a dedicated and caring teacher.   I know we all wish him well in retirement.   Of course, with Google Classroom, you never know if he will pop back up from time to time.

    EVERYONE --- WELL DONE --- Have a Wonderful, Marvelous Summer and see you in September.

    Let's Go Mets!

    Coach B.
