Hi Pup Families!
My name is Carolyn McKay and I will be coaching your child, along with the help of parent assistants Josh Williams and Robin Speas. For those of you who have not participated in Pup Running before, it's a great program to introduce your child to the sport of running. This is my 5th season volunteering to coach College Wood students. I am a 12x marathoner and Ironman so I love to run, and hope your kids will to after the season is over. I am also a USATF certified track coach certified so that's an extra bonus. At our meets, your child will participating in the 100m and 400m events with their gender and grade level. They will compete against the other Carmel Elementary Schools.
We will have pactice once a week, starting next Tuesday 4/12/16 after school. Practice will end at 3:40, so please be prompt picking up in the carpool lane no later than 3:45pm. Students that normally go to ESE, can be escorted there after practice by myself or Josh/Robin. NOTE: If you child does NOT normally attend ESE on a daily basis, you MUST submit at a "School Dismissal Manager Change" on my CCS. You may use the recurring dismissal option as well -- just follow the instructions. Again, if your child attends ESE, no change of dismissal is required. If your child does not normally attend ESE and there is NOT a change of dismissal submitted before 1:30pm, your child will be sent home via bus or carpool per their normal daily dismissal.
LASTLY, please dress your child accordingly to the weather conditions and they MUST wear running shoes. Anyone wearing flip-flops, Uggs, Converse, etc...will NOT be allowed to practice. This is for their safety and injury prevention. Also, as the weather warms up, shorts or light weight pants are recommended. Please have your child wear appropriate attire to school on Tuesdays to save time "having to change" before practice. Also, have your child bring a water bottle as we may not always have access to drinking fountain.
IF practice is cancelled due to severe weather, I will send a BEFORE 1pm, so proper dismissal changes can be made prior to 1:30.
