Hello XC Elementary Parents!
Just a quick note regarding a few upcoming scheduling items:
* Next week, practice will be moved from Thursday, October 25th to Wednesday, October 24th. My apologies for the late notice. I will be out of town on the 25th and the middle-school runners will be at an away meet. We will plan to meet on Wednesday at Wolf Swamp fields at 5 p.m. Again, no practice on Thursday. I hope to see you there!
* The Massachusetts Elementary School Cross Country Championships in Lynn, MA, are fast approaching on Monday, November 12th (Veterans Day Holiday). We ran this race last year and it is a lot of fun on a beautiful golf course. There are 2 races to choose from: 1.2 miles (2K) for grades 1-5 with an option for runners in grades 1-3 to choose a (non team-scoring) 0.7 mi race. I encourage you all to attend as this will be the final race of the season for many of our runners. It is also a unique opportunity for our team to cheer each other on: the course is highly visible at all points and the boys and girls will be run separately.
I have 3 open spaces for runners in my car for this race. Please let me know if your child needs a ride. I will be organizing carpooling in an effort to get as many of us there as possible!
Finally, I will need signed waivers for those runners who will be attending the Lynn meet. Please get these to me as soon as possible, but no later than November 1st. I will plan to hand out copies at practice tonight as well as the meet on Saturday.
As always, please feel free to email me with questions. Thank you for your support!!
