Attention all students participating in next week's track and field meet. There is an important practice scheduled for tomorrow morning where we will be run-offs to determine our team for Monday's track meet. As many students have signed up for running events, and unfortunately we are limited as to the size of our team per event, it is important that all track athletes attend. Additionally, there will be a meeting tomorrow at SECOND RECESS where all students attending Monday's track meet must let Mr. Menzies know  their transportation arrangements to the event. Finally, there is a high jump practice today at lunch in the gym for those students interested.
