Hugh B. Nolan Track Meet


Just as the cross country meet, FCPS will be holding the 35th annual Hugh B. Nolan track meet for elementary students in grades four and five.  The meet will be held on Tuesday, May 21st with a rain date set on Tuesday, May 28th.  Students will compete against students from elementary schools of the county that are in their grade and of their gender.  The meet will hold numerous traditional track and field events, but not all of them.  Students will have opportunities to participate in individual events and team relays.  Unfortunately, we cannot invite all 4th and 5th grade students to this meet.  We are limited to how many students we may bring to the meet.  How we decide who is invited is done so in our Track & Field unit in P.E. class.  Several weeks prior to the meet your child will be introduced to a track and field and will experience the events the sport beholds.  Those students who have the top places in events in class will receive a permission slip to attend the meet.  Information on this meet will not be out until March.
