Catholic Parochial Annual Track Meet

Dear Parents of St. Mary’s,
This is the Athletic Director reaching out to you all. I am doing so because thus far I have a small turn out of registrations for the annual track meet. This track meet is an amazing opportunity to see a state of the art facility at Cathedral Catholic High School. It is also a great opportunity to show support for our wonderful school.

Here are the specifics of the upcoming event:

  • Track meet for K-4th grade is on April 1st from 8:30 am to about 1 pm (it could last a tad bit longer depending on how many participants from all of the school are in the event)
  • Track Meet for 5th – 8th grade in on April 1st from 12:30 pm to about 4 pm (it could last a tad bit longer depending on how many participants from all of the school are in the event)
  • Cost is $10.00 per participant.

Please look at the registration forms. I am extending the due date to Friday, March 10th. In addition to signing up for the track meet, I will be holding several practices for those who want tips and points. I will especially require those who sign up for the relay race to attend practice. More information will come out in regards to practice times and days.
