Track and Field

Exciting News.....

On Friday May 17th  (rain date May 21) all students from grades 4 to 8 will be travelling by bus to Holy Trinity in Simcoe to participate in our school track and field event.  As a part of the physical education program, students will have the opportunity to participate in both track and field types of events.  Using the Holy Trinity facilities will ensure that students are getting experience running on a real track and the use of proper spaces for field events.  Classroom teachers are practicing for this event during their physical education periods and will be assisting students in signing up for their events.  On the day, busses will depart St. Patrick’s at 8:45 a.m. and will return in time for dismissal at 3:15 p.m..  Please ensure that your children arrive at school on time that day so as not to miss the bus.  As well, make sure that they are dressed for the many weather possibilities, have a healthy lunch and lots to drink.  While all students will be attending, we are asking for each student to pay $2 to help with the cost of bussing to Simcoe.  Please pay the $2 on School Cash Online and sign and return the permission form that your child will be bringing home.  In order to help our day run smoothly we will require parent volunteers to assist with the events (timing, raking, measuring).  If you are available and have an up to date police check, please let your child’s teacher know that you can help out on the day of the event.  It is going to be a wonderful community opportunity and we are looking forward to the day.

Also, pizza day for all students in Gr 4 - 8 will be on Thursday May 16th.  If you have any questions or concerns please call the office.
