Annual Meeting and FAST Showcase

On Tuesday, March 29 at 6:30pm, the Tritt Tiger Foundation will hold our Annual Meeting in the Tritt Cafe. Please join us to learn more about the track, the field trips, FAST programs and all the other things we do with your support.

Immediately following the brief Annual Meeting, there will be a showcase of the FAST programs for your enjoyment. Some FAST Programs will offer presentations outside the Tritt Cafe. We will be sending further information about this event to you in the near future.

Important FAST Notes

Please be sure to to send a note in with your child every time he or she will be attending a FAST program. This will help ensure that your child is safe and in the right place.

Individual FAST teachers will be deciding whether to have class on February 2. Please contact your FAST teacher for more information. February 2 was originally scheduled to be an early release day, but is now a full day to make up for time we missed because of snow.
