Dear St. Margaret Parents/Guardians of Grade 4-8 students:

Our Track and Field Day is quickly approaching!  An important note and permission form will be sent home tomorrow for this event.

The students have begun training during gym and they will begin school-wide track rotations every day next week.   St. Margaret’s staff and students are looking forward to this very exciting day!  We want all students to have fun and take advantage of the opportunity to participate in the track meet at St. Benedict’s on Wednesday May 15th.  Students will choose 4 events and are expected to participate in all four.

Here are some important notes and reminders:

  • We are still in need of volunteers; if you would like to assist us for the day, please email your child’s classroom teacher (see the attached Track and Field Volunteers form)
  • All students need to come prepared with the following: a trash free lunch, reusable water bottles, appropriate footwear and clothing for the weather, sunscreen, hat, rain jacket, etc. (our track meet will run rain or shine!)
  • Students will start the day at school with regular bell time and attendance procedures, and walk to St. Benedict’s with their classes.  At the end of the track meet, all students will walk back together for regular dismissal (please see the attached schedule for the events)
  • If a parent/guardian is picking up a student at the end of the track meet, you MUST communicate with the classroom teacher in advance. Under NO circumstances should students be leaving St. Benedict’s property for lunch and all students will return to St. Margaret’s at the end of the day unless their parent/guardian is there to pick them up (a note/text/phone call is NOT sufficient)
  • No student will be allowed in the St. Benedict playground/basketball area and must remain in our designated area for watching the track events
  • Students will only be permitted to enter St. Benedict’s School for washroom breaks and must ask permission from the designated supervisor
