Announcement:

Cross Country for Gr. 4 & 5 students

Deadline for registration is this Sunday, Sep. 15! 

Cross Country is a fantastic activity that students at any ability level can enjoy. Our students will have the opportunity to have regular weekly practices on and around Auguston grounds, as well as participate in formal meets. Practices will be held on Mondays at lunch (after the eating bell) starting Monday, Sep. 16.  Some practices will take students off school grounds.

Auguston regularly participates in the Valley Royals Grand Prix. The Grand Prix is a weekly race for 4 Wednesdays in a row. Cross Country meet dates are on Wednesdays after school: Sep. 18, Sep. 25, Oct 2 and Oct. 9 at Clearbrook Park @ 3:30pm. Students are expected to be at the park by 3:30pm. Auguston students can meet near the baseball diamond to get their pinnie and race number for the day. Please note that with the staggered start times, some students will not be racing till after 4. Please still arrive by 3:30 as once races begin, it is very difficult to organize runners. Students are expected to have gym strip, lace-up running shoes, and a water bottle. 

Consent & registration to participate in Cross Country is online in SchoolCash. Cost is $8. The fee covers organization costs, a run number for each student, and record keeping of races (all runs are timed and posted online for students to monitor their progress). 

Students who have not registered via school cash by Sunday will be responsible for their own registration at https://valleyroyals.ca/valley-royals-grand-prix-cross-country-series/Please note: the cost for self-registration may increase after Sunday, Sep. 15. 

Please email Mr. Lande, PE Teacher, if you have any questions: tyler.lande@abbyschools.ca.
