Dads and Grandfathers!

Dads and Grandfathers,

We are looking forward to having you in our class on Tuesday!

How to enter the school

  • The two doors closest to the office (north end of the school) will be unlocked, you’re welcome to enter that way and wait in the school outside our classroom.
  • You can also wait outside the bell-tower doors and enter the school with the class after lunch.
  • If anyone has trouble with stairs, there is also a back entrance off the parking lot (the door will be locked, but we can open it for you – just let your child know that you’ll be coming in that way)

After lunch, we’ll ask you to wait in the hallway for just a couple of minutes while our class gets settled before we welcome you in for an afternoon of fun!

Aztec for a day

Students attending Alpha for grade eight will be at Alpha on Thursday, May 31.

Students will meet at 8:45 in the big gym and will be dismissed from Alpha at 2:30. A BBQ lunch will be provided for the students.

Students should bring a water bottle and should wear their Alpha t-shirt.

Schedule for North Shore Triathlon

Here is our plan for the North Shore Triathlon on Monday, May 21.

7am – meet Mme Berg at Ron Andrews Rec. Centre (get your race package and then set up transition)

7:15 – when you have finished setting up your transition, head to the gym to get body marked and then wait in the gym until it is time for the race to start

7:40 – one last trip to the washroom (race begins for the youngest age group)

8:45 – students begin to cross the finish line. Our class will wait at the finish line until each of our Capitol Hill students has crossed. Once all of our class members have crossed the line, students will be free to head home with their families (or stay for the awards ceremony).

* Note that I won’t be able to see everyone cross the finish line since my race will be starting around that time.

10:00 – Kids awards ceremony (results will be posted on the wall in the gym, so that you can check if you placed in the top three – remember that it is by age)

 

Best places for parents to watch the race

  • chat with your child to see which parts of the race they would like you to watch, since you won’t be able to see everything
  • If your child doesn’t have a preference, then this is what I would recommend:
    1. watch the start of the swim, then once your child has started, make your way out to transition to watch them in transition
    2. once they have exited transition, make your way up to Mt. Seymour Pwky and Broadview Dr. From this spot, you will see:
      1. the students pass by on the bike three times on Mt. Seymour Pkwy
      2. the students run up Broadview Dr. and then turn right onto Mt. Seymour Pkwy
    3. Once you have seen your child run up Broadview Dr., make your way to the finish line where you will see your child complete their first (or second) triathlon!!

Tuesday, May 15 – triathlon run-through

We will meet at Eileen Dailly at 9:00 and students will be dismissed from there at the end of the day.

Students should bring:

  • the regular swimming and transition supplies (as listed on the letter that went home with the permission slip)
  • Capitol Hill jersey
  • a clipboard with lined paper
  • pencil, eraser
  • snack, lunch, water
  • Triathlon Race Plan (make sure you have included lots of detail)
  • bike and helmet
  • sunscreen and a hat would be a good idea
