    Dear Upper St. Clair Families:
    The Ft Couch Fall sports teams are wrapping up this week and now it’s time for the winter sports season to begin. First, the winter season brings us boys basketball, followed by wrestling in November, and girls basketball at the start of the new year. Therefore, if you are a boy and interested in being part of our winter basketball program, you must plan to attend an upcoming meeting this Friday with our USC basketball coaches. This informative meeting will take place in the LGI during period 7. Plan to attend!  Please click the link below for more information.
