Our Warriors came out strong and took third in the 5A State Swim and Dive Championships. Special shoutouts to Fletcher Hays for second in the 500, Jack Berdahl for second in the 100 Breast, and the 200 Free Relay Team of Giesen, Bensen, Brewer and Stephenson who also took second. Lots of other great placements—official results are on the ahsswimdive.com page, under documents.
A big thanks to Sonja and Paul Berdahl for all their efforts organizing our State trip, and all the parent volunteers.
STATE FOLLOW UP MEETING TODAY
The State team will have a follow up meeting after school today (May 20th) at 1:30pm. Please return your (clean) Parkas.
Thanks for a great season and for all the wonderful help you all gave in supporting the team. As the season comes to an end I need to file a report with the district and in order to do so I need everyone’s reimbursements and/or outstanding payments by this Friday (unless it’s banquet related). Reimbursement requests must be accompanied with receipts supporting the request or they won’t be paid. Any committees that still have monies to be deposited please contact me to make arrangements to drop off the money. Also, please no creative financing (using funds from one activity to reimburse for another activity). Thank you!
UPDATE FROM COACH RANDY
Congratulations to the Warriors at State Meet. Overall, the team performed very well with some very impressive times. Congratulations to our Seniors: Ben Brewer, Mitch Burcham, Drake Hampton, and Nick Stephenson for leading the team to an outstanding 3rd place finish. I was truly disappointed that I was unable to witness so many fast swims! On a side note, my ACL surgery has been a success so far. It is definitely difficult to move around but the pain has been tolerable. I cannot fully express the gratitude and appreciation for the meals being delivered to my house while my wife has been away in Indonesia. On behalf of the Hyre family, thank you for all of your support!!
IMPORTANT: KING SOOPERS UPDATE
Dear Families of AHS Boys Swim & Dive Booster Club:
I wanted to provide you with an update on the King Soopers Community Rewards program and how it will impact the Swim & Dive Booster Club fees in 2019 and future seasons.
As you may know, individual booster club fees in 2018 and prior years could be reduced by amounts contributed the AHS swim & dive program through the King Soopers Community Rewards program.
Unfortunately, I was recently informed by the Arapahoe High School athletic department that this policy is no longer allowable. The reason for this is that charitable contributions (such as King Soopers Community Rewards) used to reduce booster club fees for an individual violates regulations related to the charitable organization status (501c3) of not only the Swim & Dive Booster Club, but Arapahoe High School and Littleton Public Schools as well. As a result, any revenue (donations) that is run through a booster club’s account, must be used for the benefit of the entire booster club and cannot be used for private member benefit. As a booster club, we must be in compliance with this rule as of April 1, 2019. Any funds collected from the King Soopers Community Rewards after this date can no longer be use to offset booster club fees.
The good news is that any King Soopers credits you may have earned through March 31, 2019, can be applied to the 2020 season booster club fee. If you have a credit, I will contact you soon to let you know that amount. This policy, per the AHS Athletic Office, applies to all Arapahoe High School booster clubs.
I wanted to give you as much notice on this change in policy so that you can plan ahead for the 2020 swim & dive season. With that said, I am hoping you will continue to use (or begin to use) your King Soopers card to benefit the AHS Swim & Dive program. These contributions provide a significant portion of the total revenues of the booster club and contribute to the many activities and initiatives of the swim & dive booster club and team.
If you have any questions related to the above, do not hesitate to contact me. Thank you for your support.
Kimberly Lefever, 2019-2020 Swim & Dive Booster Club Treasurer
