CROSS COUNTRY MEET- WED., OCT. 8

CROSS COUNTRY MEET Wednesday, October 8 @ ASHBRIDGES BAY (rain or shine)

This Wednesday, Oct. 8 is meet day for the grade 2 to 6 members of the cross country team. All grade 2, 3, 4 athletes must be at school at 7:45am sharp to get their competition number and to get properly seated on the school buses. The grade 5 and 6’s must meet Ms. Morgenstern under the overhang at 8:45am sharp to get competition numbers and properly organized for the school bus.

All athletes please dress in the layers with shorts under athletic pants not jeans. Bring a warm hat, mitts, long sleave shirt, Dewson shirt if you have one and warm jacket as well as an extra pair of socks. It will be cooler by the lake and after your race you will get a chill. Make sure long hair is tied back and your athletic shoes have good laces and are double knotted. Don’t forget to bring a healthy lunch and water bottle. Remember you have to carry your epipen or inhaler during your race if you have one. Finally, memorize your competition number that will be written on the back of your right hand.

Parents/caregiver, you are welcome to watch and cheer but you are not allowed to run along beside your child during the race. You will need to find your own transportation there. If you choose to drive your child back to Dewson, please notify a teacher so that they know  your child is safe and does not need to go back on the bus. Races start for grade 2 at 10:10am and each subsequent race will begin about 10-15 minutes after the prior e.g. gr.2 girls, gr.2 boys, gr. 3 girls, gr. 3 boys etc. As a result, there is no exact time for races. All athletes will be shuttled back to Dewson by school bus before the end of the school day. Donations of $5 or less to help subsidize the bus costs are still be accepted.

If you have any questions or concerns, contact Ms. Mary Ann Kowal.

Go Dewson Go!
