Fort Plain Faculty/Staff Hoops set for Mar. 9

Harry Hoag School Gym will host the 2018 Faculty/Staff Basketball game on Friday, Mar. 9.

Festivities begin at 5 p.m. when students in grades 4-6 take the court for biddy basketball.  At 6 p.m., eight teams made up of a teacher, a junior or senior, and a sixth grader take the court for a skills challenge. The teams race to hit a free throw, a three-pointer, and a half-court shot. The main event, a coed faculty/staff basketball game, tips off at 7 p.m.

The annual event will pit Team Crisman against Team Larrabee. The game promises to be exciting and fun. Everyone is invited to come and cheer on their favorite teachers and school employees.

Admission is $2 for adults, $1 for students in grades 7-12, and free for students PK-6. All K-6 students need to be accompanied by an adult.

Half-time of the adult game will feature a half-court shooting challenge. One dollar buys a chance to hit a half-court shot to win five dollars. Hit two shots and win an iTune card.

All proceeds go to the PTA, which underwrites educational and extracurricular activities not funded in the school budget.
