The Dewson Track and Field Meets are less than two weeks away with the junior meet (gr. 4, 5 and 6) on Wednesday, April 27 during the whole school day and the primary meet (gr. 2 and 3) on Thursday, April 28 during the morning only. The rest of the the week are designated as potential rain dates in case of inclement weather on the original dates.
The students have already been training in P.E. classes and are excited about competing in the variety of track and field events (see newsletter attached below). Please ensure your child is dressed in layered athletic clothing including athletic shoes. Parent volunteers are especially needed at the junior meet (timing, measuring and recording).
These meets will determine most of the members of Dewson’s Track & Field Team in terms of who will compete at the South Conference Qualifying Meet on Monday, May 16 at Varsity Stadium. A few events like the 4x100m relay, 60m hurdles, 800m and 1500m will have separate runoffs to determine who will represent Dewson. Only one representing athlete per age group and gender can compete in each event. An athlete in grade 4-6 can compete in 2 events plus the relay. Whereas a grade 3 athlete can only complete in one event plus the relay.
Attached is a poster of the meets. A newsletter was also emailed to families. Again please contact Ms. Kowal if you would like to volunteer. Thanks.Dewson Track & Field poster
