Please see the following message from Coach Chris:
Hello All Tennyson Tigers.
There is still time to join our fabulous and exciting Cross Country Team. Practices are Monday, Wednesday and Fridays 8:00AM until 8:45 PM. Yes we will have a practice on a race Day. Please print forms and return them in the boxes outside the office with cheque or money.
This team is open to all ages. Anyone grade 2 or lower we ask that a parent be there to support your runner. This year we have added a few surprises so stay tuned.
Parents your help has been great so far, great running and snacks, we have a parent photographer, parent race supporters, parent managers and uniform persons- WOW! We need a Snack Parent for both the races and Fridays. Please email Chris if you are able to help organize something healthy and yummy. We also need parent drivers for the meets. Please drop by the school office and ask for a parent insurance driver form. Fill it out and bring it back to the school. We need all seats possible as some student's parents cannot provide rides.
Parents please arrange a rides for your runner with their friend, classmates, teammate etc. We will also assist in this process at practice this Monday. Please also make arrangements to have your runner picked up after the race.
