Fall 2015 Track Team


Hey East Lake Elementary,

It's the 4th quarter of the 2016-2017 school year! Everyone knows that the 4th quarter means it's GO TIME! So let's get going. The spring weather is a perfect time to get outside and get some exercise. The trees are turning green and growing their leaves again. Flowers are blooming and blossoming so why don't we get outside with our families and have some fun and enjoy all the beauty while we get our heart rates up and work on our muscle tone. Just a 30 minute walk every day will do wonders for the health of both children and adults so like the shoe company says "Just do it".

Speaking of Go Time, we're finishing up our Track tryouts with our 3rd - 5th graders and I'm looking forward to some big fun on May 11th at Ooltewah High School at our annual Hamilton County Elementary Schools Track Meet. We're gonna field an awesome team and go out there and compete against some of the other Elementary schools in our county. As soon as we finish tryouts and pick our team we'll send some information home to all the families of the boys and girls that make the team. Anyone that wants to come out and cheer us on are more than welcome. So GO EAST LAKE EAGLES! The events start around 9:30 and finish up around 12 or 12:30. Our colors are Blue and Yellow so put on your school colors and come out and support our boys and girls as they show off their skills and speed.

I have just one more reminder for you. Our Field Day is going to be on May 12th and our boys and girls will be outside enjoying many activities and games. Make sure we wear some weather appropriate clothing (school uniform of course) and some tennis shoes so we can have a fun and safe day with our wonderful friends from Chattanooga Christian High School that come out and put this terrific day on for our school. The school will be sending home more information as that date gets closer. Call the school if you have any questions about these upcoming events.

Thanks , Coach Mac
