Dear BRMS Families:

Today was Move Up Day for both our eighth graders heading to MMU and current fourth graders entering BRMS this fall. It was a day of excitement and nervous energy for both groups.  The warmer temperatures quickly tired out our visitors but they had a great time and we are looking forward to greeting them next fall. Our current 8th grade students headed off to the high school this morning with their peer advisors.  It was a great day for all of the transitioning students. 

We are closing in on the last two weeks of school. Be sure to check the calendar of events listed below.  There are many important activities happening in the next few weeks.

Have a wonderful weekend!

Track is Back!

Mt. Mansfield Summer Track and XC Program.

Get On Track in 2023!!!!

Mt. Mansfield Summer Track is back for our 29th year.  The program will run from Wednesday, June 21 through Wednesday, July 19.   Practices/Meets are Monday and Wednesday afternoons from 5:30 to 6:30 (meets will run longer) at the Mt. Mansfield High School Track.  We usually host 1-2 meets and travel to 1-2 meets against other rec. programs in Chittenden County.  The weekday meets are low-key, just show up and run the evawents you want.  The youngest age group includes all children who turn five years old during 2023, the oldest age group includes all athletes up to those who will turn 15 in 2023.  Practices and meets are run in age groups - 5-6 years, 7-8 years, 9-10 years, 11-12 years, and 13-15 years.

We stress participation, sportsmanship, and having fun.  All athletes will be introduced to basic track and field techniques and proper running form.  Athletes are encouraged to try all the different events and find out which they like best.  All are welcome and we especially need seventh and eighth graders, it’s an excellent way to find out about track before you get to the high school.  This program is designed to introduce new athletes to the sport as well as challenge experienced athletes.

 If you have any questions or want a registration form please contact Bill Eschholz at mmstxc@gmail.com
