Hi Parents,

What a great day for a track meet, I hope you all enjoyed it as much as I did!
Here are the photos from the meet;
Practice this Thursday same time same place. Weather looks like showers (with a chance of Thunderstorms). IF it does thunder around 4pm/5pmish expect practice to be cancelled safety is our main concern. If it's raining we will run on. :)

and EpiPen with them to each practice.
