Cross Country Update for Meet Tomorrow (Oct 12th)

Best of luck to the team tomorrow! Go Gledhill Tigers! 🏃‍♀️🏃‍♂️

A few notes and some information for tomorrow’s Cross Country meet provided by Ms. Smith.

Morning Announcement (For Students):

This is just a reminder that the cross country runners in Grades 4 and 5 are to meet me at Door 5 (Gym) when the morning bell rings at 8:40. The runners in Grades 2 and 3 are to go to class for attendance first. I will start picking you up at around 9:00. Consider bringing books to read, sketch books, decks of playing cards, etc. to keep busy during off-race times. Please do NOT bring sporting equipment. See you tomorrow!

Notes for Parents:

  • When cheering on our athletes, you MUST remain on the outside edge of the course. Students MUST be supervised at all times!
  • Please ONLY take photographs of your own child/ren.
  • Due to the distance of the public washrooms from the course, we are going to be using the provided portapotties.
  • Below are a couple of maps that might come in handy. 1) Course Map 2) Restricted Areas

🏃‍♂️ Cross Country Update 🏃‍♀️

A message to parents from Ms. Smith regarding cross country:

Parents of our cross country runners are more than welcome to come to the meets to support their children! In the interest of safety and monitoring attendance, I would like the primary (Grades 2-3) and the junior (Grades 4-5) teams to travel to Sunnybrook Park together. If you would like to take your own child home after the race, please just let me know first so that I can document it. Finally, Sunnybrook Park is located at 1132 Leslie Street (Leslie and Eglinton). Thanks in advance! Ms. Smith

Also, in case you missed the letter that was sent home yesterday (Oct 5th) below are some details:

As a reminder, the South Conference Qualifying Cross Country Meet for Gledhill Jr. P.S. will take place next Wednesday, October 12th. A school bus has been booked and will be leaving Gledhill at 9:45 a.m. It will be departing Sunnybrook Park to come back to school at 1:00 p.m. sharp. We have a very large team this year and the bus only has a capacity of 47 people. Thus, due to numbers, runners in Grades 2 and 3 will ride the school bus to the meet with myself, Mr. Webb, and one parent volunteer. Mr. Pearson and some other parent volunteers will travel with the Grade 4 and 5 students on the TTC, leaving at approximately 9:30 a.m. Mr. Pearson and I will switch roles for the rides back to school. I would like the Grade 4 and 5 students to meet me outside Door 5 when the bell rings at 8:45 on race day, so that we can go into the gym and hand out the jerseys. I will pick up the students in Grades 2 and 3 from their classrooms after they check in for attendance to do the same.

Please ensure that your child is dressed appropriately for the weather, as the races will go on rain or shine, except in the case of thunderstorms. Also, please pack some water and lunch/snacks for him/her/them.

Approximate Race Times (Please note that they can run up to 30 min. early.):
