Program Sales for October 4th Game
We could use a few more people to help sell programs for the Friday, October 4th Varsity game. If you can help, please send Christy Anderson an email (email@example.com). Volunteers should plan to arrive about 30 minutes before the game to start selling programs. Volunteers should continue selling programs in the stands through the first quarter. Each (home side only) entrance should have at least two “sellers” and at least two “sellers” should walk the stands. Last game to sell programs of the season!
I’ve been asked by the Project Graduation team to ask for any volunteers to help in the concession stand for the remaining two Varsity home games. The Junior Class is typically responsible for fundraising for Project Graduation, but anyone can volunteer to help for a little while in the concession stands. If you are interested, they would be grateful for even a little bit of help. Sign up link is below:
October 11th & 18th Games
With no school on the 11th or 18th, Coach will provide the players the game day schedule as we get closer to those days. We are working on the plans for the Pitt trip – for both the players and the Booster BBQ and will let everyone know as soon as the plans are more concrete. I might be reaching out to some people for some assistance on logistics as we get closer.
October 7th - Monday – Chipotle Night – 135th Street Location
Football has their Chipotle Night next Monday, October 7th. This is a pretty good fundraiser for us as we get 33% of the sales that night. Please share this with friends and family on social media. Please note that this is at the new 135th Street location – 14317 West 135th St in Olathe (near Menards). I’ll tweet out reminders in Monday and post to Facebook, so please retweet and share!

Zaxby’s Freshmen of the Week
Congratulations to Reece Magathan, the Olathe East Hawk's Zaxby's Freshmen of the Week! Reece unselfishly changed positions from fullback to O-Line the before the first game. The coaching staff recognizes his outstanding play on both Offense and Defense Against Gardner-Edgerton and selected Reece for this honor.
Scout Team Player of the Week
Congratulations to Ty Herl, for being named the Olathe East Hawks' Scout Team Player of the Week. Ty gave 100%+ all week to get himself and the team ready for the game last week, and his effort did not go unnoticed! Congrats, Ty!
Please be sure to keep our sponsors in mind when going out in the community. Without them, we wouldn’t be able to do what we do every week and throughout the year for the team. When you stop in, please be sure to tell the manager on duty that you appreciate their support of the Hawks!
If you haven’t picked up your car decal yet, I will (try to remember to) bring them to the game on Friday night. Find me in the stands and grab your car decal. I do have some extra available for $5 each if you want one for your other car(s). I’ll also (try to remember to) bring them with me and they will be available first come, first serve basis.
