I'm really excited about the kick-off of our 1st full week of Track & Field practices. Students are reminded that they will need their full gym strip & running shoes for all practices next week as well as for their regularly scheduled PE classes. I have attached an e-copy of the Track & Field practice schedule that went home last week to this post with some additional information and minor time adjustments.
After school practices that are held @ St. Paul's on Mondays & Thursdays will conclude @ 3:45 pm.
After school practices that are held @ Minoru Track on Mondays & Tuesdays will conclude @ 4:00 pm.
Please ensure that your children are picked up in a timely manner if they are involved in any of these activities.
Morning practices will begin promptly @ 7:30 am. (Please note that Gr. 7 Shotput & Discus practice on Fridays will begin @ 8:00 am and will be held on site @ St. Paul's.) The morning Sprint practices @ Minoru will conclude @ 8:15 am to allow students enough time to get changed and to make their way to the school for 8:45 am bell. If at all possible, please simply drop off your child(ren) @ St. Paul's as opposed to parking at the school. We are anticipating a great deal of congestion in the parking lot as we have limited spaces because of the construction on site as well as morning Mass letting out @ 8:30 am.

- a hoody or fleece layer, toques, gloves (for the chilly early morning)
- a blanket to sit on/keep warm in the stands when waiting for events
- a waterproof/water resistant jacket (with a hood if possible)
- extra socks & towel (in case of rain)

A schedule of the day's events is attached. Families with siblings in Kindergarten, Gr. 1 or Gr. 2 will have to return to St. Paul's for pick-up @ 3:00 pm. Please remember to pick-up students at the Track BEFORE picking up younger siblings at the school.
Any parents who are able & willing to help out with events, marshaling, handing our ribbons etc. are asked to see Mr. Kelly in the morning at Minoru.
Please refer any questions to Mr. Kelly at firstname.lastname@example.org
Thanks for taking the time to read this detailed post.
Enjoy your weekend & we'll see you bright & early on Monday morning @ Minoru Track!!
