Whispering Palms 4th/5th Grade Track Team

The McDonald's All School Track Meet will be on May 12th at the Ada Track. On that day the organizers only take the top 6 finishers in each age category from Saipan to compete. Tinian and Rota get one spot each. As you can see there are many students from our little school who are trying out for these limited spots, let alone all the other schools. We are all cheering for each other hoping to have many Whispering Palms Students Qualify for the McDonald's All School Track Meet. At the All School Track meet each student who qualifies earns points for their school depending on their race results. These students have been working hard in PE and also going down to the track for the preliminaries also known as the qualifiers each week. Last week they were at the track until 8:00 PM! In my opinion EVERYONE WINS just for being out at the track, trying something new, and being healthy!!! I'm so proud of each one of you for being on our track team and trying so hard to qualify! Way to go!
