Landlubbers Fall Session 2019

 

Welcome to the FALL SESSION of LANDLUBBERS! LANDLUBBERS is OCE's very own running club. It is a parent and staff led after-school club for 3rd, 4th, and 5th graders ONLY. LANDLUBBERS will focus on using running as a way to remain heart healthy and fit (and to have some FUN!). We are gearing up for our fall session where our focus will mainly be building up running stamina and preparing to run a 5k.

 

Needs to Know: 


Landlubbers will take place on Tuesdays from 3:45 until 4:45pm starting on August 20th. The season will run until November 12th. PLEASE NOTE: THERE WILL NE NO LANDLUBBERS SEPTEMBER 10, 17, 21 (due to Track 1 being tracked out).

 

On Tuesdays, students will meet at the basketball court at dismissal to drop off their backpacks and head to the track for warm-ups.

 

All ability levels are welcome. Our goal is to have ALL the students running; however, walkers are welcome (You have to start somewhere!) We NEED positive attitudes. We NEED students who are willing to give running a CHANCE!

 

On Tuesdays, runners need to wear proper running clothes and shoes to school. Students who do not have on proper clothing and/or running shoes will not be able to participate on that day. SO PLEASE MAKE SURE TO WEAR RUNNING ATTIRE/SHOES ON TUESDAYS!

 

BRING A WATER BOTTLE. (We try to limit trips to the building for safety reasons, so please send a water bottle specifically for running club or a refillable one for students to fill before it starts.)

 

Students must be picked up in the carpool lane promptly at 4:45 pm.

 

In addition, there will also be a link for the sign up genius to help out on the TRAIL. If we do not receive at least 10 volunteers (parents and teachers) we will be unable to run on the trail that day! Be sure to sign up!

 

If there is inclement weather Landlubbers will be cancelled. An announcement will be made to students at school, parents will be emailed, and it will be tweeted out.

 

In order for your student(s) to participate, you will need to complete THIS FORM, by August 20th, 2019.

 

If you have any questions or concerns please email Mrs. Marie Jones (Track 1 fifth grade) at mjones1@wcpss.net
