Please remember:

  • Camera (charged batteries + memory card)

Track Meet – Thursday, May 3


Posted by Cheryl Semke | Posted in Uncategorized | Posted on May 1, 2019

It is track meet time!

For the past month, our Grade Four students have worked diligently to develop their track & field abilities. They have demonstrated very good effort and perseverance. Now it is time for a fun-filled, action-packed day of healthy physical activity, good sportsmanship, & positive social interaction with Christian schools from all over the Lower Mainland and Fraser Valley.


  1. Be prepared for any type of weather.
  2. Wear appropriate athletic gear (supportive running shoes, shorts, & red RCS T-shirt).
  3. Bring a healthy snack, bagged lunch & lots of water.
  4. Sunscreen & a hat (even an umbrella for shade) are lifesavers on a hot day.
  5. Meet in our classroom @ 8:10 for attendance (we load the buses at 8:15 am sharp)…please be on time!
  6. If you are driving your own child to & from the track meet, please email Miss Semke as soon as possible (please cc Mr. Przybylski).

This event is always a highlight of our Gr. 4 school year. Thank you for your prayers & support!

Miss Semke (
