State volleyball fan bus information and T-SHIRTS!
DEADLINE to sign up is Wednesday at noon (November 7)
Posted at 11:50 a.m. on Monday, Nov. 5.
This is a very exciting week in Belgrade-Brooten-Elrosa Jaguar Country! If you haven't heard, the Jaguars volleyball team has earned a trip to the Class 1A state tournament that begins on Thursday, November 8. The Jaguars play at 3 p.m. against New Life Academy of Woodbury in the state quarterfinals at Xcel Energy Center in St. Paul. Win or lose, (and we are VERY hopeful they will win!) the Jaguars play again at 3 p.m. on Friday at Xcel. (Championship Saturday holds the first, third and fifth-place matches for the teams that avoid going 0-2 in the first two days.)
B-B-E school administration has announced exciting news on offering fan/spec buses. The band bus and fan bus(es) will leave on Thursday and Friday at 11:30 a.m. both days from the high school (11:15 a.m. elementary departure). This is for riders of school bus fan buses. Once the school knows how many adults/students are riding as fans, they will order up the appropriate number of school buses to carry the band and fans. DEADLINE for signing up is NOON on Wednesday this week.
Band members are allowed into the game at Xcel Energy Center at no charge. The cost for fan bus riders is $5 for the bus, and STUDENT tickets will be for sale at Xcel Energy Center for $10 per match. Students in grades K-6 may ride the fan bus but only with an adult, $5 for child and $10 for adults (bus cost) - then tickets must be purchased at Xcel (adult prices $16 per match).
To register for the fan bus, parents (and for their K-6 children) should contact Tessa Schoenberg via e-mail: email@example.com. **For 7-12 grade fan bus riders, they need to contact Mrs. Bertram at the high school office in person, or e-mail her at firstname.lastname@example.org. Again, the deadline is NOON on Wednesday for registration and payment.
If there's enough interest for a chartered fan bus, those buses will be leaving the high school at 11:30 a.m. on both days (11:30 a.m. elementary departure). If interested, you need to contact Tessa via e-mail at email@example.com. The cost of riding the chartered fan bus each day is $20, and riders will still need to purchase admission tickets at Xcel Energy Center ($16 adults, $10 students)...the charter bus will depart 30 minutes after the completion of each match. To make this happen, the school needs 40 riders paid and signed up by Wednesday at NOON this week.

If families need school-age child care on Friday, they can contact the Jaguar Kids Connection and register for day time child care (until 5:15 p.m. that day) as a drop-in. Call 320-346-2278, ext. 1319. Or e-mail Josie Dingmann as another option to inquire about that option!
