We know that getting communication home via middle schoolers can be difficult so to help keep you in the loop with what is going on, we are creating a team e-mail list. You will receive weekly updates about our upcoming races, results, etc. This information will also be posted to the front page of Quimby Oak's website as well.  Please take a moment to fill this out as it will greatly help with coach to parent communication: CLICK HERE

Practice will be held 4-5 days per week and are generally after school from 2:10 to about 3:15 pm. We will also have an optional morning practice on Wednesdays due to weekly staff meetings after school. A practice schedule will be posted on our website and passed out at practice. The season is about six weeks long going to early October. Note: This week's temperature are expected to be very warm. Practices will be adjusted accordingly. Please be sure to hydrate throughout the day!

 

RACE SCHEDULE:

We are in the process of finalizing the race schedule and plan to post by the end of the week. Our first meet is Thursday, September 7th at Guadalupe Oak Grove Park in San Jose. More information will be sent home with students and via email so please be sure to sign up for our team e-mail list.

 

TRAINING:

Our goal is promote the love of running and to build a foundation of fitness. We will start easy and slowly increase lengths of runs. Races will be about two miles and our training runs will max out at about three miles for most runners.

7th grade art students created Dream Catchers, an art form crafted by many Native American nations and tribes. Students secured artificial sinew to a hoop frame and wove a pattern in a radial spiral to simulate a spider’s web, leaving the center open to allow good dreams to slip through. Some students decorated the strands that hung from their hoop with colorful feathers while others attached special artifacts. 

http://www.planetozkids.com/oban/legends/more-about-dreamcatchers.htm

 

This study to cultural art continued to an exploration of weaving, like the sweet grass and pine needle baskets created by West African artist Mary Jackson. Students formed coil bowls of various sizes by connecting rolled tubes of colorful magazine pages. They completed this assignment by filling their woven vessels with messages that represent their aspirations and dreams.

We are excited to participate in a very important donation drive to help Aly, one of our former Evergreen School District students. Aly attended Norwood Creek Elementary School and Quimby Oak Middle School before she went on to high school and then proudly graduated from San Jose State University.

 

Sadly, Aly has been diagnosed with a form of late stage cancer.

During the Month of May, Quimby is standing together with other Evergreen Schools to Fill the Bucket with Love and Loose Change for Aly! as we help her fight through this very difficult time of her life. All donations will be used to directly assist Aly with her mounting medical costs and living expenses.

 

So during the month of May Let’s Come Together and Fill the Bucket with Love and Loose Change for Aly!
