Ropers-We are having Group pictures on Thursday February 21st at 8:30 am.  Please meet in the cafeteria in your Roper uniform—Black shorts, Roper T-shirt and tennis shoes at 8:15 am.  .  You need to bring your Roper picture form and money on that day if you want to purchase a picture.  If you are in choir, you will have time to change from your choir uniform into your Roper uniform before the picture.

We are having practice this week.  I have attached the note I am sending home about the basketball game.  Please let us know if your Roper can not attend the performance
 

Ropers- Our next performance will be on Friday February 1st at the Tomball High School Girls Basketball game.  We will jump rope at half time.  Please arrive at 6:45  pm at Tomball High School in your Roper uniform.  Your Roper uniform is the Roper shirt, Black shorts (dress code appropriate) and tennis shoes.  If your hair is long enough, please pull it back in a ponytail or out of your face.  You will not need your single speed rope because we will be performing Double Dutch. Parents and Siblings will have to pay to get into the game and watch. It cost $3 for adults and $2 for children.

Happy New Year!  We will have practice again Wednesday January 16th.  Our first performance of 2019 will be February 1st at Tomball High School.  We will send out information about the performance next week at practice.

This will be out last week of practice for December.  Our next performance is Friday February 1st at a Tomball High School girls basketball game.  More information to come when we get back from the holidays. We have been working on double dutch for that performance.  
 
We have had a great semester and I wish you all Happy Holidays and a wonderful break with your family.

We had so much fun at the Parade!  The ropers were amazing.  We will have practice the month of December and we will be learning Double dutch!!!

We are so EXCITED for the parade on Saturday!
 

Our first performance is Saturday November 17th.  We will be marching in the Tomball Holiday parade.  You need to be at First Baptist Church at 8:30 am.  We have to be lined up by 8:45 in our assigned line up space.  We will have to leave the church no later than 8:40 to find our assigned space.  We are #55 in the parade and we line up on Commerce Street.

          We can’t park at the church or any of the parking lots around the church, so drop your child off with us and park somewhere else.  If you have questions ask one of us.

Please pick your Roper up at the HEB parking lot when the Ropers are finished performing not at the end of the parade. Please let us know ahead of time if your Roper CANNOT attend the parade on the 17th. If you would like to walk with us in the parade and help, let us know.
