Additional info:

The Good News is we will have a Cross Country team! The bad news is we will be unable to run in races due to Covid 19. The local Cross Country races that are scheduled will not include an Elementary Division. Therefore, we will not order shirts or charge for entrance fees. Please sign your student up for XC by using the forms listed on the Google Classroom or your student may pick them up in the gym. Please return both to me by the first day of practice, Sept 1st. We look forward to a fun, productive practice season!
