It is hard to believe that this is the last week of our XC season!

The coaching staff has enjoyed coaching and working with each and every member of our team.  It is great to see the improvement of each athlete and also to see the smiles on their faces when warming up and stretching with their teammates.  It is a very special group of kids!  We hope that everyone has enjoyed the season as much as we have!  We would also love to see everyone back this spring for our Spring Track team!

Here is the week ahead along with information about the Carlisle Invitational which takes place on Monday.

**If your child is not running in the Carlisle Invitational then they will not attend practice on Monday as all 3 coaches will be going to meet**

Tuesday - DQ Run!  We plan on leaving school at 2:30, run to DQ in Natick for an ice cream and then run back to WMS by 3:45.  This is a great "Workout" and the kids always enjoy it.  Please have your child bring a few dollars for an ice cream!  Also, please be sure your child returns their signed permission slips for our DQ run.  If you need another copy, please click here for an extra permission slip.

Thursday - Final meet of the season at Watertown.  We will send along information about the location of the meet once we hear from the Watertown coaches.

Friday - Team party!  It is a tradition for our team to end the year with a team party.  We encourage team members to bring a few snack items to school with them and the coaching staff will provide some pizza.  It is a fun way to end our season.  Pick up will be at 3:15.
