Our school will again be joining a cross-country running circuit with a group of elementary schools. This program is for interested students in grades3-6 and we will hold practices at lunchtime on Wednesday's, with races being held after school at various locations (listed on the schedule).
During these practice sessions, students will learn about proper warm up and stretching techniques, pacing for endurance and proper breathing. Musquodoboit Valley Education Centre, Dutch Settlement Elementary School, Upper Musquodoboit Consolidated School, Winding River Consolidated and Shubenacadie Elementary will all be hosting a race this year.
Transportation to and from all races are the responsibility of the child's parent/guardian. Runners may participate in any or all races during the season depending on available transportation.
If your child is interested in joining cross country running, please fill out the form that went home with your child and return it to Ms. Halloran asap.
In the event of any changes (cancellations - move to rain dates) an email will be sent to all participating parents/guardians and phone calls made to any/all who I do not hear back from electronically.
