Congratulations Crusaders!!!

Congratulations to all of our student athletes for their excellent work at the Richmond Zones Track Meet today.  I was very proud of each and every one of our students who showcased their determination and best effort for all to see.  Many thanks to Mrs. Espinosa and Mme. Caprilli for running the High Jump event, Mrs. Jew for her help in the marshaling area and to all of our classroom teachers for helping get the students to and from their events.  It was wonderful to see so many of our parents, grandparents, and other caregivers who were able to be at the Track today.  Thank you as always for your continued support.  Our extra-curricular sports programs would not be possible without you.

Just a reminder that there is no morning track practice on Wednesday this week. The only track practice tomorrow is Gr. 3 Long Jump from 12:00 - 12:30 pm.

All other practices will resume on Thursday.

Thanks!

St. Paul's & St. Joseph the Worker Track Meet tomorrow!!!

Hi Everyone!

I'm really excited about our track meet tomorrow.  It looks like Mother Nature is going to cooperate too!

There are a few volunteer opportunities available tomorrow for any interested parents.  Mrs. Imoo & I will need some help at the Finish Line handing out ribbons to the athletes & Mrs. Espinosa will also need some help with the Softball Throw. If you are interested in helping out, please touch base with me tomorrow as we gather for the meet.

Also, I'm excited to share with you that Canadian Olympian Race Walker Evan Dunfee will be attending the track meet tomorrow and will speak with each of our classes as a part of our day.  We may even have the chance to have an inaugural St. Paul's/St. Joe's race walk!

Students are reminded to check in with their classroom teachers in the stands upon arrival to Minoru Track.  All students must be present for attendance by 8:45 am.  Students are also reminded to check out with their classroom teachers at the conclusion of the track meet as well.  Pick-up @ Minoru will be 1:45 pm. 

See you in the morning!

Mr. K

Week of April 24-28, 2017 - Track & Field in full swing!!

Hi Everyone!

I'm really excited about the kick-off of our 1st full week of Track & Field practices.  Students are reminded that they will need their full gym strip & running shoes for all practices next week as well as for their regularly scheduled PE classes.   I have attached an e-copy of the Track & Field practice schedule that went home last week to this post with some additional information and minor time adjustments.

Please note:

After school practices that are held @ St. Paul's on Mondays & Thursdays will conclude @ 3:45 pm.

After school practices that are held @ Minoru Track on Mondays & Tuesdays will conclude @ 4:00 pm.

Please ensure that your children are picked up in a timely manner if they are involved in any of these activities.

Morning practices will begin promptly @ 7:30 am. (Please note that Gr. 7 Shotput & Discus practice on Fridays will begin @ 8:00 am and will be held on site @ St. Paul's.)  The morning Sprint practices @ Minoru will conclude @ 8:15 am to allow students enough time to get changed and to make their way to the school for 8:45 am bell.  If at all possible, please simply drop off your child(ren) @ St. Paul's as opposed to parking at the school. We are anticipating a great deal of congestion in the parking lot as we have limited spaces because of the construction on site as well as morning Mass letting out @ 8:30 am.

Any parents who are able & willing to help out with events, marshaling, handing our ribbons etc. are asked to see Mr. Kelly in the morning at Minoru.
