First Annual Intra-SJS Track Meet - May 5th

We are proud to announce we will be holding the First Annual St. James School Track Meet!  For now, this will only be for SJS students, friends, and family.

Date: Sunday, May 5th

Runners should plan to arrive at 2:30 for warm-ups and check-in.

I am thinking we will have the following events, in the following order, for the following age groups.  Children can participate in as many events as they choose.  I am guessing the entire "meet" will last ~2 hours.
