All students in the Junior and Intermediate divisions, grades 4 to 8, will be participating in our annual school track meet on Tuesday, May 16. A rain date has been scheduled for the next day, Wednesday, May 17. The track events will be held at the soccer field behind the school and the pit events on the north side of the school yard. Students are required to participate because their involvement is tied to their Phys. Ed. mark.
Students need to be prepared to stay outside all day because all junior/intermediate teachers will be involved in running the events. Please make sure your son/daughter comes to school equipped with the following articles:
– proper running shoes (NO spikes and sandals as they are dangerous to run in)
– gym shorts of an appropriate length – NO jean shorts, cut-offs or short-shorts
– long sleeved shirt and loose pants to protect them from the sun when not competing
– beach towel to sit on
*** SUN SCREEN ***
*** HAT ***
Students should bring a nutritious lunch with extra drinks and snacks.
Parents are welcome to come and watch. Parking at the school is limited and tickets have been known to be given out, so it would be appreciated if you could car pool or walk. Please remember to sign in at the office.
