Hey High Steppers,
Thank you for registering to represent Our Lady of Fatima Catholic School, Texas City at this years Steps for Students 5k. We are so excited to take on downtown Houston with you! THIS SATURDAY FEB 18!!
You can pick up your registration packet from the front office starting Wednesday February 15 at 9AM, or send a note to your child's homeroom teacher and we will place them in their backpack. YOU MUST PICK UP YOUR PACKET BY FRIDAY AT THREE PM!
We will have two meeting locations! One for early risers who would like to attend 6:30AM Mass, which will be on the corner of St. Josephs Pwy and Fannin (where the race will begin) and the second one will be at OLOF School (1600 9th Ave, Tx City) for breakfast at 5:45 AM. We will not have a tent this year at Catholic Schools Village due to limited spacing, so Coach O will be passing out donuts and other goodies to enjoy on the car ride into downtown.
Parking in downtown will be very hard to come by, as roads will begin closing at 7AM for the race. Also, be aware that you should be prepared to PAY (cash) for parking downtown. See the attached map for best parking and availability.
You are invited to join us in wearing our new 2016-2017 school year Spirit Shirts. If you do not have one, and would like to purchase one for you or your student Mrs. Mouton has some for sale in the front office. They are $14.00 a shirt for adults and $12.00 for youths and are only available on a first come first serve basis. Please remember this is a 5k and whether you plan to complete the race or not, you may have to walk a short distance to/from your car.
Other helpful thoughts
-If you have a younger child you may want to bring a wagon, umbrella stroller, or other carry-me tool.
-We will have a groupMe text line which is free service for large groups to communicate on RACE DAY if you would like to be added to this please email me with your cell phone # and I will add you to this.
-If your student is registered but you are not, you are not able to walk the race with them. You must register for a bib if you want to walk/run the course.
Thank you again, I look forward to seeing you all this week. If you have any questions please contact me via email @ COliver@fatimatc.org THANK YOU!
