Cross country practices begin tomorrow, Tuesday September 12, 2023 from 3:00 – 4:00 pm for participating students in Gr. 2-6. Pick-up for all participants will be 4:00 pm in the covered area. Students will gather with their coaches @ 3:00 pm on the grass field right beside the K portable. Students will wear their gym strip and runners for practice and should bring a labeled water bottle with them.
This year, the Garry Pt Fun Run will only be for students in Gr. 2-7 that have chosen to participate in training sessions and practices. Everyone is invited to join our team. Students who chose not to join Cross Country will remain at school on the afternoon of Friday October 6, 2023 while the Cross Country runners head to Garry Pt. Park.
The Cross Country Running team for Gr. 3-7 will train on Tuesdays from 3:00 – 4:00 pm and on Thursday mornings from 7:30 – 8:30 am. Students that join the team should have a keen interest in running and be prepared to train hard to compete in the CISVA Cross Country Championships on Wednesday October 4, 2023 @ Central Park in Burnaby. Each class from Gr. 3-7 will be represented at this event by the top 4 boys and the top 4 girls in their respective grades. There will be opportunities for Gr. 7 students to once again volunteer to assist with the practices that will be held in the large fields behind Palmer High School. Parents are also welcome to attend Cross Country practices to assist with student supervision. The Cross Country team coaches are Ms. Wu, Ms. Meyer, Ms. Maye, and Ms. Carroll.
I went over this information in detail with all of the classes today but feel free to email me should you have any further questions regarding Cross Country.
