Phillips Swim Team back in the groove again

Dear Parents and Guardians of students at Pittsburgh Phillips, K-5:

Phillips Elementary School will once again be participating in the Pittsburgh Public Schools Elementary Swim Championships. The swim meet will be on December 4th at 1:30 pm. The event will be held at Allderdice High School. Tryouts and practices for the Phillips Swim Team will be held at the Oliver Bath House on the South Side. All fourth and fifth graders are encouraged to participate. Third graders are permitted to practice but are not eligible for the meet. Students who wish to make the Phillips Swim Team must meet the following requirements:

1. Permission slip must be filled out and returned by October 26th.
2. Students must meet the age and grade requirements for the meet.
3. Students must not have more than two “needs improvements” on the first quarter report card.
4. Students must be competent swimmers (you must be able to swim in the deep end of the pool).
5. Students must attend three tryouts or practices.

Students will be practicing to swim competitively. Please do no let your child participate if they did not pass a deep end swim test this summer. Parents are responsible for safe and timely transportation to and from the Bath House. More information regarding the actual swim meet will be sent home at a later date. If you have any question please call me at school 412-488-5190.

The first practice will be on October 28th at 6:30pm.

Thank You,
Mrs. Bichler
