Information for Stallion Stampede happening tomorrow !!!

posted Mar 7, 2019, 1:21 PM by Curtner Webmaster

Our Stallion Stampede will be happening tomorrow. If you are planning on coming by to see your child run, here's the schedule:

  • 8:45am - School Starts
  • 9:00am - 1st grade
  • 9:30am - 2nd Grade
  • 10:00am - 5th Grade / P7
  • 10:30am - Kindergarten
  • 11:00am - 3rd Grade
  • 11:30am - 4th Grade 
  • 12:00 - 6th Grade / 5th/6th combo

Fortunately, the forecast is not calling for rain tomorrow. However, due to the heavy rain this week, the field is very wet. And since we don't want the kids slipping or getting muddy, we've decided that this year, the run will not be happening on the field. Instead, we'll have it on the blacktop, near the intermediate kids' side.

Another change this year: We'll be offering ice cream to students after the run. If your child has any dairy allergies, please make them aware that there will be a couple of non-dairy options to choose from.

Also, be sure your child has shoes that are comfortable for running, as well as a water bottle.

If you have any questions, you can reach out to Rhoda at: 

We look forward to having a great Stampede tomorrow!
