TRACK MEET IS COMING – May 14th

We will be hosting the Annual Greystone Centennial Middle School Track Meet at our school on Thursday, May 14, 2015. All students will be expected to take part in the track meet and all staff will be in attendance as well. There will be a concession available for those interested. This day is a hot lunch day as well, so if you order hot lunch, it will still be served. We would like to invite you to come join us for a day of fun and friendly competition.
Students finishing in the top four in the junior, intermediate and senior age categories in each event will have the opportunity to compete in the Zone Track Meet on Friday, May 22rd at Spruce Grove Composite High School. If a student in the youth category has a faster time/longer distance then he/she will advance in place of a junior athlete.
Following the Zone meet our athletes can advance to the Division Championships on Friday, May 29th at Stony Plain Central. If your son/daughter finishes in the top 2 in this track meet they will advance to the Zone 5 track meet in St. Albert on June 3rd.
Please remember that the track meet will run as long as the weather cooperates. The rain out date for our track meet is set for Tuesday, May 19th. Keeping this in mind, we would like to encourage you to remember to send the following with your child on the day of the track meet, as appropriate:
• Proper footwear
• Appropriate clothing
• Sunscreen
• Mosquito repellent
• Hat
• Money and/or a bag lunch
• Umbrella
• Blanket
• Sunglasses
• Water bottle (filled)
We are looking for volunteers to help out with the track meet. Please let us know at the school if you are available and interested by sending back the attached slip by Friday, May 8th. Any questions may be directed to Mr. Granley at the school (962-0357) or by facebook at Greystone Athletics. Thank you!
