Girls Basketball Hosts Teacher Appreciation Night

The Arrowhead girl’s basketball program hosted a teacher appreciation night on Tuesday, December 20th. On December 15th an email was sent to all the Arrowhead Professional Staff from Arrowhead Basketball Coach Ron Reichle inviting them to come and watch the girls play. 


Lots of sports teams at Arrowhead High School host a teacher appreciation night. The boy soccer team had their night in the fall. Girls’ ice hockey has theirs coming up on Thursday, January, 5th.


Sophomore Gabby Hass who is on the JV1 basketball team said that they did teacher appreciation night a bit differently than most years and other teams do. Instead of having the players invite their favorite teacher, the coaches extended it to all teachers. 


Hass said that to start off the teacher appreciation day, the teams had to arrive in the morning and drop crumbl cookies in teachers mailboxes. The players got to pick the teacher they gave the cookie to, to still keep the old tradition alive. Hass gave her cookie to Social studies teacher and head coach Ron Reichle.


Hass picked him because she says, “I really enjoy having him as my teacher in my class.”


Senior Bella Samz who is on the Varsity basketball team said that she enjoyed the crumbl cookies drop off in the morning. Samz said she gave a couple of cookies away, one of them being Social Studies teacher and head coach of Boys Varsity Basketball Craig Haase, and Grace Bonlnder.


As a thank you to the teachers who attended the game, they gave away gift cards to a few lucky winners. They gave away one gift card at halftime during the JV2 game being played at South campus at 5:15. They also gave away one gift card at halftime during the JV1 game in the East gym at 5:15. Finally they gave away two gift cards at halftime during the varsity game beginning at 7:00. In order to win the teachers had to be present and in attendance at the game. The girls came out with a win.


So far the girl’s record is 7-1 and marketing teacher Steve Melzer says, “It has been an exciting surprise and it has driven me to want to come to more girls’ games.”
