As we wind down the school year I wanted to wish all the students at École Robert Browning a happy summer! Be sure to keep safe, healthy and active during July and August.
There will be lots to look forward to in 2014-15. Students entering grade 4 and 5 should keep their eyes and ears open for announcements regarding our school Cross-Country running team in the first weeks of school.
Enjoy your summer holidays!
Tomorrow morning we will be holding our last Marathon Club practice. Students, staff and parents have been busy training since late April with the intentions of running in the Great West Life Super Run this weekend (June 15th).
I wanted to wish all 45+ students and parents running this weekend the best of luck in their races! It truly is a huge accomplishment for you all to go out and run this coming weekend. I also wanted to thank the Manitoba Marathon School Programs group for helping to make this event and the training leading up to it run so smoothly.
Here’s a little video to get you pumped up for the race this weekend.

Didn’t participate this year? There’s still a great opportunity to be part of the festivities this Sunday. Why not come out and cheer on the racers? A detailed map of the marathon route is available at http://www.manitobamarathon.mb.ca
I also wanted to take this chance to stay thanks to M. Phillippe Chabot and M. Colin Steele, two teachers that motivated me to by the runner that I am today! I’ll be participating in my first (and probably last!) full marathon this weekend.
