Vipers Valor: Get ready for VERSO's first ever Homecoming Event!

By Garrett Cutler / September 14, 2023 / Learning Designers, Sports

Hello Viper Fans!

I hope this email finds you well and ready for some more action, because we have some really exciting stuff coming up! But before we get into the fun part, please see some important reminders and updates.

πŸ˜„ After-School Activities Info
In recent weeks, we've encountered situations where individuals have requested sign-ups, changes, or attended ASAs for which they are not officially registered. We kindly request your cooperation in refraining from these actions, as the ASA sign-up period was open from 16-28 August, and ASAs have been in progress for two weeks now. After tomorrow, we will not be able to accommodate any further changes or additions to the ASA rosters. Thank you for your understanding and adherence to this policy. Please bear in mind that for the next round of ASAs, there won't be strict time constraints. With this in mind, we will need to strictly adhere to our sign-up policy and timeline.
πŸš‘ Community First Aid Training
We had our first community First Aid training today and it was a huge success with 17 participants. Our next one will be on Tuesday 26 September from 8:00am-11:00am in CONNECT. If you plan on coaching or running an ASA here at VERSO, please sign up using this link
πŸ€ Basketball Updates
In the past few weeks, several adjustments to the basketball schedule have been made due to unforeseen circumstances within the GBAC. We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience caused, but it's important to note that these changes are beyond our control. We have full confidence that all GBAC members will have completed their necessary adjustments by next week. Please continue to refer to the info packet for updates.

πŸ€ VERSO's first ever Spirit Days and Homecoming Event
  • "Spirit Weeks" (or in our case "Spirit Days") take place in the week leading up to the homecoming event. It is filled with themed dress downs, activities, music and more to promote school spirit and community. Please see the flyers below for details.

  • Homecoming typically takes place in high schools, colleges, and universities. It is an event that celebrates everyone being back on campus after summer holidays where the community comes together to celebrate the school's spirit, pride, and achievements. Let's get our whole community to come down and cheer on our teams whilst enjoying a DJ, emcee, halftime shows, and refreshments!
