  • We are looking forward to our next meet on  Thursday.  Because of Labor Day and the staff development day next week we will not have the opportunity for another practice.  So,  we have assigned some "running homework."  Please encourage your child to run at least two days over the long weekend.  ALL OF OUR TEAM, even our little ones, have been able to run/walk at least two miles with hills.  Some can even run up to four.  The course at Lake Forest next week includes a good hill so it would be very helpful to include some hillwork as well.  All of your kiddos can probably show you some good trails they've run so far!
    As for the meet on Thursday, a bus will be available to Lake Forest after school.  If your child is taking the bus, please have them meet us at the lunch tables after school.  The bus will pick us up at 2:30-2:45.  If you are driving your child, please be at Lake Forest School by 3:00 for the walk-through.  The races will begin with 3rd girls, followed by 3rd boys, 4th girls, 4th boys, 5th girls and then 5th boys.  We love having parents and siblings there to cheer our team on so feel free to come and watch these exciting races!  The meet is usually over by 4:30.  There is no transportation home so please make sure you have arranged to pick your child up on time. PLEASE MAKE SURE YOUR CHILD IS SIGNED OUT BEFORE LEAVING!!  There will be a signout sheet by our area, which will be next to the Silva Valley banner.  If your child is not signed out, we will be  stuck there making phone calls and worrying.
    T-shirts will likely be passed out on Wednesday.
    Results are sometimes posted as the races finish.  I cannot email the results but they will be available at our EZ -Up at the next race.
    Also, I've attached the schedule for this season  If there are changes, I will let you know!  As always, feel free to email me with any questions you may have.
