RUTLAND Back-to-School Night is Sept. 25 at 6:30 p.m. This is an evening when parents and guardians walk through their sons or daughters schedule and receive course details from teachers. Back-to-School Night ends at 8:30 p.m. Athletics: The football team has been on a regular summer schedule of conditioning. Stop by the softball field to offer encouragement to the football team members and the coaches. Besides football, some of the other sports offered this year include cross country, girls and boys soccer, girls and boys hockey, softball, baseball, track, girls and boys basketball, and golf. Encourage your son/daughter to try out for an MSJ team. Remember that it is primarily through participation in MSJ athletics that the physical education credit is earned.
