Track & Field (Grades 4-8)
Dear, Parents / Guardians,
Rosedale Heights’ annual Track and Field Meet will be taking place on Thursday, June 1st, 2017. This is an all-day outdoors event where the students will be participating in a variety of running and field events that they have been practicing in their Physical Education classes. The top six students for each running event (100 meter, 200 meter, and 400 meter) and each track event (standing long jump, running long jump, triple jump, and ball throw / shot put) will receive ribbons. The top two finishers from each event will be invited to participate in the Area Track and Field Meet (June 14th and 15th; details to follow).
Please ensure your child is wearing appropriate clothing, such as a t-shirt, shorts and running shoes. Your child should bring a hat, water bottle, and sunscreen as they will be outside for the majority of the day. The Track and Field Meet will take place during the regularly scheduled day (8:30 to 2:50).
Students who are unable to participate for medical reasons and have provided a note from home will be asked to assist teachers managing the events.
As always, we expect that students will behave in a cooperative and respectful manner throughout the day.
The expected forecast for Thursday is partly cloudy and eighteen degrees. However, closer to the date, should it call for rain, our rain date will be the day before on Wednesday, May 31st.
