Maquoketa Middle School
Attention all parents of a Middle School athlete: The Maquoketa Athletic Boosters will be hosting their annual youth basketball tournaments on Nov 1 and Nov 8-9. Over 100 teams are participating. This requires a tremendous amount of volunteers and donations. The Middle School athletes are being asked to donate either scotcheroos (9×13 pan cut into 12 bars, individually wrapped) or Puppy Chow
(1 1/2 cups per bag). 7th graders should bring their donation to the high school on 10/31 between 3:30-6:30 and 8th graders on Nov 7 between 3:30-5:30p. Athletes and their parents are encouraged to work a 3 hour shift. Please contact Tracy Waller at firstname.lastname@example.org
or 563-349-0638 with any questions. The Maquoketa Athletic Boosters now support and help fund all athletic programs 7-12th grade.
