Cross Country – Grade 3-6

 

For the last three weeks, your child has been practicing hard for our cross country meet in Beaumont next week.  That being said, there are schools attending the meet that practice all year round, so our main goal for our athletes is to have fun, finish the race, and have a positive overall team experience.  We will leave on a bus from CES at 8:30 on Monday, October 3rd and return after the meet is over; this will definitely be prior to the end of the school day.

 

In order to participate fully in the meet and enjoy the activity, it is necessary for your child to have a few key items:

 

  • good outdoor running shoes and socks
  • A turquoise CES t-shirt (available at the school for a cost of $15)
  • bottoms which are appropriate for running and activity, such as shorts or track pants
  • a warm jacket or hoodie
  • one or two water bottles
  • a hearty bag lunch and snacks
  • a book, soccer ball, or other activity to do while waiting for others to race

 

Optional items:

 

  • money for the concession
  • a small blanket to sit on
  • a hat
  • sunscreen

 

On the back of this sheet you will find approximate race times according to year of birth, just in case you want to come and cheer your child on at the meet!  We also have room on the bus if any spectators would like to join us on the bus ride.  You will also find, attached to this letter, a permission form which needs to be filled out and returned by Monday, October 3rd.   The cost of attending the meet is $9 per student, which can be paid using the ACORN system.  This covers cost of entry and bussing.

 

Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns.

 

Sincerely,

 

Miss Kimberley Dean
