Practice this Past Week and other Items
This was our final week of practice for the 6th graders.  It was highlighted by the run to Fenton's with about 30 kids participating.  Please note, I need the singlets that were checked out to your child returned to me after the championship meet.  I will be at the track on Tuesday, November 4th after school and the kids can drop it off then.  The plan is to utilize these singlets in the years ahead, so it is important that they be returned to me.
 
Practice Plans for this Week and other Items
This coming week, there will be practice on Monday for the 7 & 8th graders.  Coach Melissa will lead it, while I and the other coaches are at the 6th grade championship meet.  Our final practice will be on Tuesday, November 4.  There will be no practice on Wednesday.
Please note, I need the singlets that were checked out to your child returned to me after the championship meet.  I will be in touch with details on getting the singlets back to me.
 
Piedmont Turkey Trot
A Piedmont tradition, the Turkey Trot will be held on Thanksgiving Day, Nov. 27.  The race organizers are offering PMS cross country members a special entry fee rate of $10.  Please respond to this e-mail if your child is interested.  I will contact you with more details.
