Community Service

Have you written one of your teachers a note? Have you volunteered to help out around Vista? If not you still have time. And guess what else is coming back (Due to popular Demand)

The Blue Santa Kick-off match will be held on December 9th when we scrimmage Cedar Park. You will have an opportunity to earn your community service hours while collecting toys for Blue Santa. As you know Vista and Cedar Park have a huge Blue Santa Rivalry and Vista routinely does a great job supporting this community event. Look for more details to come but we hope all Lady Rangers, parents, and supporters help contribute to this amazing cause.

Reminders

I am truly excited that our season is here but there are a few things that I want to emphasize as we start this journey together:

  1. Communication is key - Please communicate with me anytime you are going to be absent, late, or have conflicts or appointments. Although things come up from time to time, please try to schedule appointments outside the 3-5 pm window on practice days, and let your coaches know as soon as possible when you will not be available.

  2. Positive Team Contributions- All of you have chosen to be a part of Lady Ranger Soccer. There is no such thing as a Neutral team member. You are either making the culture of the program better or You are not. Your actions, your words, and your attitudes help to move the team forward or it keeps the team from progressing as it should. Make sure you choose to move the team forward each and everyday. Bring great enthusiasm. Bring a great attitude. Bring a desire to work hard. Bring words of encouragement and inspiration. Be the teammate you want others to be.

  3. Student Athletes- Lastly and Most Importantly you are Students first and athletes second. And as we have seen the first two six weeks, we have a lot of excellent students in our program. But we were not in season then. As we now begin after school practices and game day trips and routines, it becomes even more important for you to stay on top of your academics and assignments. Being disciplined in your academics is just as important as being disciplined in your athletic/soccer training.

Tools for Academic success-

- Use your time wisely

- Use Ranger Time to work on homework & assignments and not just socialize

- Use the Study Hall time to get tutorial help from some of our amazing teammates.

- Communicate with teachers before absences occur.

- Communicate with teachers after absences occur. (They have hundreds of students, you need to make sure they have received your assignments and you get any assignments missed)

- DO NOT PROCRASTINATE- putting off homework until 10 or 11 pm is a recipe for disaster.

- Put your phones down until your work is done- It should not take you two hours to complete a 20 minute assignment because you are on your phone.


Get a good night sleep Lady Rangers! Tomorrow we begin.
