Dear Parents,


We had a great meet with the Eagles this week. So many P.R.'s (personal records)

We will have ribbons for the first meet ready this week! There will be boxes at the end of practice on Wednesday and Thursday. You can pick them up. They will be filed under family name. If you are missing ribbons please send an e-mail, or write it down and give it to Coach Elaine. Personal Record ribbons will also be ready this week.

We know many of you will be on vacation this week. You can still run the meet on Saturday if you get back in town.


This week will be considered an away meet (Hawk Track club is hosting us at Valencia High).

Lost and Found
All Lost and Found items will be donated to Goodwill at the end of Monday's practice. It is too hard to move between practice sites and we don't have room to store items. Please check on the fence if any of the items are your child's. We also have a few pair of new spike shoes we found. See coach Elaine for those.
