PAC NEWSLETTER – MAY 5, 2017

May-Photos-3

We made it to May and we have been lucky to have some nice days here and there, lets hope we have more.

UPDATES

KM club report – 4th week update – Ross road’s runners and walkers have collectively crossed Canada and have reached St. John’s! Now, with only five KMC days to go, it is time to double down and make it back!  The total number of students who participated in week four was 207 and 54 of those were intermediate students. This means that it is still within the realm of possibility to double the mileage between now and May 12. Keep coming if you have been a regular and please consider joining the fun if you haven’t. The music on Fridays is really motivating.

The updates for weeks 1 to 3 can be found in the previous newsletters
