See the backside of this paper for event options.

Brandon-Evansville kids can ride the track practice bus to and from practice, Ashby kids meet in the Ashby commons area after school until the start of practice. The bus will return to Evansville at about 5:40 in the back parking lot and Brandon 5:50 in front of the school.
On the day of the meet, May 19, students will load a bus with the A-B-E junior high track team. Evansville will load at 1:45 from the front of the school, and Ashby at 2:00. The bus will return to each of the schools following the track meet where parents can pick them up. We expect to be home by about 8:00 p.m. in Ashby, 8:15 Evansville, and approximately 8:30 in Brandon. Parents are invited to attend the track meet to cheer on their son/daughter. If they are going to ride home with a parent, you will need to sign them out with an ABE coach.
