The track meet will take place during the school day so it will not interfere with any other activities outside of school. I will be sending a paper home on Friday, Jan 14th about what event(s) your child made and the days they will have practice. We will begin track practice on Monday, Feb 28th. Practice will take place during the school day from 2:30-2:50. For your child to practice they have to bring athletic shoes, gym shorts or leggings, and a comfortable shirt. I will let your child know if practice changes. The event will be held on Friday, April 8th at Gadsden City's track starting at 9:00. If it is suppose to rain that day the make-up day is set for Friday, April 22nd.
