Sports Notes



Posted: August 28, 2014

I hope everybody had an excellent summer and are just as excited as I am to get back to Gretna Green.  Information on school sports will be given out next week.  Our first two sports will be Cross Country and Soccer. Just a few reminders about Phys.Ed class for students.  Proper indoor gym sneakers are required for Phys.Ed class, these are shoes that stay tight to your feet and not fall off when you participate in class.  No Crocs, flip flops, sandals.Also for our Grade 5 students you are required to change for Phys.Ed class this year so please make sure you have a change of clothes for your Phys.Ed days.  We will talk more about this during the first week.  Mr. Ryan
 Congratulations to our school soccer team on a winning effort this season and being crowned tournament champs during our year end soccer jamboree.  The team played hard all season and their hard work paid off.  Well done team!!!
