Just a reminder that we will be taking Boys and Girls individual and team photos this week on the lacrosse field at Mill Road. The boys pictures will be taken at practice on Wednesday, May 27th and the Girls pictures will be taken at practice on Thursday, May 28th. Please make sure all players wear their game uniforms and Coaches, please wear your Coaches shirts. Both nights, we will begin right at 5:30 PM with the Bantam teams and end with the Senior teams. Our hope is to stay on schedule and be done shooting the Senior teams by 7:30 PM each night. (Or sooner!) Your coaches should have distributed the order envelopes last week at practice or this past weekend after your games. Please try to arrive at the field on time and with your envelope filled out. If you do not have an envelope, you can download and print one from the Forms / Handouts menu on the left hand menu of our website.
We are working on an alternate picture location if we run into bad weather on Wednesday or Thursday evening.
We hope everyone is considering marching in the parade on Monday, May 25th! Parking is always an issue, so please plan on arriving, on Commerce Drive, by 8:45 AM at the latest and consider carpooling!

Please join me in congratulating two of our current youth lacrosse players for being selected, by their teachers and administrators, to receive a major award by the North Branford Public School district. Braeden LeBeau, 5th Grader at TVES and current Girls Junior player and Jessie Kilburn, 8th Grader at NBIS and current Girls Senior player were chosen to receive the 2015 SCASA Superintendent's Award.
Braeden and Jessie received their awards on Friday in Hamden, CT at the SCASA Superintendent/Student Awards Luncheon. The Superintendent's Award was awarded to Braeden & Jessie in recognition of their community service, academic achievement and leadership in the school community.
Braeden and Jessie were two of six award recipients in the North Branford School District. (Two each from TVES, NBIS & NB High) We congratulate all of the award winners and especially our own Braeden and Jessie for setting such a wonderful example on and more importantly off the field!
Congratulations we are all very proud of you both.
