Room Parent Program: All parents should have received classroom-specific Volunteer Sheets from the Room Parents of their respective classes.  If you would like to be considered for a volunteer assignment (including field trips, class parties and various school-wide events), please make sure to complete these and send them back to your Room Parents no later than the deadline specified on the Volunteer Sheet. 

If you have not received a Volunteer Sheet, please contact Rachel Horwitz (Grades K-2) at terpgirl77@gmail.com or Donna Quatrone (Grades 3-5) at kingvito115@gmail.com  and we will make sure the appropriate one is sent to you via email.
Wrestling Clinic: With 35 new grapplers joining our teams from last year’s clinic, a great season on the mats and a few new coaches we are looking to introduce more young boys and girls to our favorite sport. So your Randolph Rec Wrestling Team is holding our 2nd Annual “FREE” Intro to Wrestling Clinic on Sunday October 21st.

 Who: This is a casual and fun event focusing on K-8th Grade Boys and Girls and their Parents to learn more about the sport of wrestling.So No experience is required… ACTUALLY NO EXPERIENCE IS PREFERRED!

 Why: Wrestling gives your child the best chance for success because practices and competitions are based on 3 basic criteria…

1. Experience

2. Age

3. Weight

 What: We will start with a meet and greet with your coaches, board and a few active wrestlers. Our board will be breaking off with parents to discuss practices, events and how wrestling can improve self-confidence, discipline, grades and of course other sports. This will be followed by a few exhibitions demonstrating techniques and drills followed by a 30-40 minute workout and wrapping up with one of the fun games we close our regular practices with.

 Equipment: Bring your sneakers, shorts or sweats and a t-shirt and of course a desire to learn more about wrestling!

 When: Sunday, October 21st from 10am until 12 Noon.

 Where: Randolph Middle School Main Gym

 Snacks: Our Wrestling Boosters Club will be serving free snacks, beverages and other treats all morning.

REGISTRATION: Sign up at the Randolph Parks & Recreation’s Community Pass site, see link below. Click “Browse Activities ”, then click “Winter Sports” and then the “Intro to Wrestling Clinic”.
