Finalizing the Team & Logistics…

Hi Community ~ So we are just doing a couple of more Gr. 8 Tryouts for javelin, etc. The teams are posted in the school and I will try to link up here in the blog too!

FORMS: Permission forms are all out ~ pls. return P.2 asap!

TIMES: I will post event schedule for Fri. May 19 in the school and I will ask students to know their times so they can pass them along to you at home. If you signed the permission form ~ you have signed that you can get your child to the meet early if he/ she is running 1500m or hurdles.

BUS: We do have a bus for the day of the first meet – we will run 2 shuttles.  If the meet runs late, we will need parent drivers to assist in getting kids home.  Alternatively the form you signed also gives permission for Gr. 7 and 8 students to TTC bus home.

PRACTICES: Some coaches will try to offer pit practices during recesses.  Distance runners are encouraged to train safely on their own. We will try to host some practices at 11am or the 2:45pm for difficult events like the hurdles and shot put.  Mr. Brown has kindly offered to run some 8 am practices for the relay 4 X 100 teams! Students will have to listen for announcements to hear the times and grades. (We will try for an 8am Wed. practice for the Gr. 4 – 6 teams I hope  depending on Ultimate Frisbee.)

EXTRA RELAY INFORMATION: If a lead athlete or parent wishes to sign out a baton, please see Mr. Brown. You can then practice at Birchmount stadium after school or on the weekend.  If you are practicing in the morning on school property –  a teacher must be present for legal reasons.
