On Wednesday, May 16, 2018, the Junior and Intermediate students at Fossil Hill Public School will be participating in the school Track and Field Meet which will be held at Fossil Hill P.S. and at St Jean de Brebeuf High School. All field events will take place at Fossil Hill and all track events will take place at Brebeuf. Students will be walking from Fossil Hill to Brebeuf and back again to Fossil Hill for their events with teacher supervision. Boys track events will take place in the morning and field events will follow. Girls field events will take place in the morning and track events will follow.
Students will be outdoors for the entire day (8:40 am to 3:00 pm) participating in various track and field events that they have signed up for. Each child will be participating in four events. These activities are tied in with the Physical Education program of the school, and it is expected that all students in grades 4 through 8 will take part.
Students are asked to dress appropriately for physical activity: proper running shoes, shorts or track pants, and t-shirts. Parents are asked to ensure their child comes to school wearing sunscreen, with sunscreen to re-apply as needed, and with a hat and a water bottle. They may also want to bring a small amount of money to purchase drinks and snacks that will be on sale that day at Fossil Hill. We recommend an environmentally friendly, refillable bottle with their name on it. Students need to prepare themselves appropriately based on the weather conditions.
Thank you for your co-operation,
The Junior and Intermediate Staff at Fossil Hill P.S.
