Pack the Place!

Everyone is welcome to join our Chargers and Charger fans at Boys' Pack the Place on Friday, March 11. Our 5th, 6th and 7th grade basketball teams will face St. Mary's at 5:00. 6:00 and 7:00 respectively. The 8th grade Chargers will play St. Angela's at 8:00.

Children should be accompanied by a parent or designated adult.  For safety, any student should plan to stay in the gym for the evening, rather than coming and going outside.  Let’s be proud of the gym space by recycling and disposing of garbage, too.
