A message from Coach...
For February and March in the gym, we focus a lot of our attention on the heart and lungs and the importance of getting plenty of aerobic exercise.
So please consider signing up for this year’s Kid’s Chase. It is a wonderful opportunity for Ethridge kids to challenge their heart and lungs in a fun competitive atmosphere. I’ve attached race details and how to register. T-Shirts are awarded to the first 250 kids who sign up.
You may have noticed the name change from Kids Chase by the Lake to the Coach Cox’s Kids Chase. For those that do not know, last year The Colony lost a fantastic mentor, coach and friend. Coach Cox, BB Owen Elementary School, was a strong supporter of the Kids Chase event every year. To honor his memory, organizers chose to change the name of this event to help continue the legacy that Coach Cox brought to the Kids Chase event.
Please check your child's classroom teacher email for the form to fill out!
Austin Field Trip
Thank you so much for taking care of the payment and sending in the paperwork required for the field trip. We just have a few students left that need to pay and take care of the paperwork. Your kids are going to have an AMAZING time on this field trip!
Please check your child's binder for some important information that was sent home about our upcoming trip to Austin on April 22nd. The packet includes information regarding payment, permission slips, medical/allergy forms, and general trip information, including snacks and meals. Payment is due in full February 1st. We included a sheet with a QR code that you may scan with your phone, which will take you directly to the link to make the payment if you have not done so already. Chaperones, if you need a link for payment, please let your child's classroom teacher know because chaperone payment is also due by February 1st. We are looking forward to taking this trip with the students, and we know they are looking forward to it, too. We've been discussing it during Social Studies, and they are so excited! It really is a lot of fun. If you have any questions or concerns, please email your child's classroom teacher!!
