Thursday Field Trip Change and Update!

NTHS XC Athletes and Families:

Due to likely cold rain or even snow (!) at our intended destination on Mount Rainier, the
field trip planned for this Thursday has been changed. Instead of visiting Mount Rainier, we will be meeting at the NTHS Pool at 9:00 AM on Thursday and traveling to Millersylvania State Park. The plan is to return to NTHS between 2:00 PM and 2:30 PM. I've reserved a covered picnic area near the lake for us, so we'll spend the morning exploring the trails and then enjoy a picnic lunch in one of the cool historic shelters. After lunch we'll spend some time playing games, etc. then get back on the bus and head home. It should be a lot of fun even if the weather doesn't cooperate completely. Any parents interested in joining us are welcome--just send me an email at and let me know if you're interested. Any additional food is welcome, too! Here's the modified gear list:
  • Running gear
  • Rain jacket
  • An extra pair of socks
  • Extra layer of clothes (warm-ups, fleece, etc.)
  • Lunch!
  • Water and snacks
  • Sunscreen (wishful thinking)
  • A bag/backpack for all your stuff
Thank you for your patience and support!
