Additional Team Update:
Participation - On the day of the meets, invite your Tennyson Tiger to wear their Orange team shirt to support their teammates. And even if it is not your childs' meet, they are always welcome as supporters! We are all one big team, and this is a fun way for the younger kids to start to see what the bigger meets are all about!
Practice support - A huge thanks to Mme Megan Samenirad (Div. 19, Maternelle/Kindergarten) for coming out and being one of our sponsor teachers last week. We so appreciate her help and support, and we couldn't have had such successful practices without her!
Additionally, a big thank-you to parent coaches Ed Sernoski and Ryan McCuaig for leading the rainy-day practice on Wednesday when the field was simply sludge and unusable (and the gym not available due to being booked for early voting). The combination of stairs, shot-put dodgeball, toilet and octopus tag, and the grand finale of the circle-jumping exercise (for lack of an exact name) made it a great practice. Not a typical Track and Field practice, but a lot of fun and definitely applicable exercise!
Regarding Track & Field team Uniforms -- we use the bright Orange Tennyson Athletic t-shirts as our Track & Field uniform. They are $20 per shirt, or $30 for the entire set of shirt/long socks/long-sleeve black shirt for underneath/bright orange toque. There are bursaries available for families who are not able to incur the cost of the uniforms at this time. Please email Mme Alain confidentially in this regard.
(Unfortunately, we may not have enough old previously used t-shirts available for those who forget theirs on the day of the meet. Please help your athlete bring theirs to avoid disappointment at the meet. If your athlete has already borrowed a shirt from us and not returned it, they will not be able to borrow another until they return the first.)
Special Finals notes:
-Please indicate if you can send/attend with snacks for District Meet May 24th.

-Please indicate if your family (# members) plans to attend the Team Party at Boston Pizza 3:30-6pm(approx.) following the District meet on May 24th so that we can make appropriate reservations.
- We hope to celebrate with the K-2 group in a special Annual Mini X-Meet Friday May 26th from approx. 7:45-8:45am so please stay tuned....tbc
