Coach's Corner

Fall 2015 Track Team



I just wanted to touch base and tell you about a couple of the upcoming events we've got going on in P.E. First, we have Jump Rope for Heart in February, the week of Feb. 21 - 24. It is not only a great chance to get some great exercise jumping rope but it also is an opportunity for our boys and girls to help make a difference in this world. Jump Rope for Heart is a fundraising event to raise money for the American Heart Association. There are a couple different ways that we do this here at East Lake. We will be sending home some information about how your children can participate in this worthy cause. You can expect that information the second and/or the 3rd week of February. The second thing I wanted to tell you about is our Track Team tryouts. The Track Meet is not until May but we start our tryouts in March. The reason I wanted to talk about this so soon is because we are already monitoring our students' behaviors. Students with behavior issues will not be able to be a part of our track team. It's not too late for our boys and girls to start making some good choices in their behavior patterns so that they don't have to miss out on a great chance to show off their athletic abilities and represent East Lake Elementary at the Hamilton County Elementary Schools' Track Meet.

Thanks for your cooperation,

Coach Mac
