Track Club is ON!!

Several people have asked if we will be having Track Club the next 2 Fridays.
My thoughts are:
*we will have Track Club pretty much every Friday afternoon, unless weather prevents us.
*if you would prefer not to send you child on a given day, be sure to let the classroom teacher know.
*we are a "come when you can" kind of club, it is not necessary to attend EVERY Friday.

With that said, we will be out on the track this Friday, after our Fun Field Day event as well as next Friday on Halloween day.

NOTE:  Although the weather is starting to cool down, between 2:40 - 3:30 when you are running the track, it gets hot!  Please remind your child to pack an extra water bottle on Track Club days.
Water fountains outside are not turned on and access to the building is limited.  It is best if the students bring their water bottle filled when the come out to the track.

NOTE:Sign up for After School Track Club will close tonight at 10:00 pm.
Be sure to register your child by then if s/he has expressed an interest.
The next opportunity for registering will be in November.

**At this time we have over 110 students signed up!!  Parents that are picking up  their kids: if you are available to come at 3:15 and help with the check out process, it would be appreciated.  We will need to teach the kids the system of checking out, getting back packs, and where to wait.  The more adults we have on deck the better we can keep track of the 110 kids.**
