Cross Country 2017-18

To all students returning to ELMS next year . . . 

Start planning now for the Fall 2017  Cross-Country season!  

Informational flyers and permission slips are now available at ELMS and on the Cross-Country page of the ELMS website (   ALL students are invited to participate; there are no try-outs or “cuts.”  It’s fun, and a great way to get in shape with your friends!

Because our season is short and begins early in the school year (Thursday, September 7th), you can help us get off to a great start by getting your forms in early and making sure that your health records are up-to-date with the school’s health office.  In order to participate, you must have a current (i.e., within 2 years) physical on file with the ELMS Health Office.

Please contact Ms. Love or Mr. Sheppard at ELMS if you have any questions; we look forward to seeing you in September!
