A tradition of excellence

Running Club

Our running club for students in grades 4-6 will be starting up again next week.  We will run on Tuesdays and Thursdays. You DO NOT have to be a fast runner to join!  Everyone is welcome.  We will divide runners into groups and you will start by running for part of the time and walking for part of the time, depending on your comfort level.  The running club is NOT just for those students doing the cross country series.  It is for everyone!

Please ensure you get a permission slip and be ready to go on Tuesday or Thursday, depending on when your permission slip is returned.  Also, please note that students MUST be wearing proper running shoes and exercise clothes in order to participate. Other than that, the only thing required is a positive and respectful attitude.  Please also note that in case of rain or heavy winds, we may sometimes have to cancel in the afternoon, so be sure to talk about what to do when that happens.

Our goal again this year will be the Santa Shuffle, a 5K run which takes place in December and is a fun running event for children and adults alike.  This year, we are also hoping to have our grade three students participate by doing the Elf Walk. More details will follow in November.

Parents are more than welcome to join us and we are delighted to have some parent volunteers.  A very big thank you to the teachers who have offered to help on their own time.  We couldn’t do this without them.  : 0 )  Can’t wait to start running with you!!!

Congratulations to all the runners who participated in the first cross country meet this morning. It was sunny, but cool and windy. All runners did a fantastic job and, as usual, represented themselves and Feild very well.  Awesome job!

I missed the early runners, but here are a few pictures of some of our students.
