End of Year Letter 2015

April 30, 2015

Dear Parents,

It is the time of year again where we are finishing another fun and successful track season. We will be at Wayne HS on Wednesday, May 5th as part of the Warrior Elk track meet. We will donate the gate of this event and make a donation to the Juvenile Diabetes Foundation and we are calling it “the fight against juvenile diabetes”. We are asking that each athlete donate $1 (if possible) so that we may make a team donation this year. I am excited that we will continue to add a philanthropic opportunity to our program and this organization is one that we feel we can contribute to. It’s also a great meet and all are encouraged to attend.

The last meet of the season for many of our athletes is Saturday May 9th at the JV GWOC meet. The meet will be back at Centerville High School this year and will start at 10 am with the field events and 10:30 am with the running events. After this meet, we will be identifying some of the athletes who we would like to stay and practice for the remainder of the season. The remainder of the athletes will have completed their season and will be turning in their uniforms at this time. We will be collecting these at the conclusion of the meet Saturday. Please have you son/daughter bring all of their gear with them to the meet and a change of clothes to wear home.

The Varsity GWOC meet is at Troy High School on Wednesday May 13th & Friday May 15th. It is shaping up to be a fantastic post season and all are encouraged to come and support the team. Wear your track t-shirts and cheer on our ELKS!

The banquet will be on Monday June 1st at 6:30 pm in the Performing Arts Center. I realize that this is the first Monday after school is out but we want to have all students available to be here and wanted to stay away from graduation and exams (plus end of the season meets). The banquet will have cake and drinks after the ceremony in the lobby and all are invited to stay and celebrate the season. Information is available on or if there are problems with this, please email me at We will be moving the equipment back up to the school the day after the banquet (6/2). Please have your child here at 10am to help move. It is a huge undertaking and if everyone is here it can be done in an hour; but if not, it can take all day. The athletes must be at the banquet & equipment moving day to receive their PE credit and complete their season.

Thank you for all of your support this season and we will see you at the track.
