The Running Club began three years ago and under the guidance and volunteerism of our wonderful parent community, students have the opportunity to run, jog, walk and earn small token and rewards as they complete laps. This is offered several times per year and usually two lunch periods per week. Again, this program communicates the importance of exercise and how having a healthy body impacts physical, mental and emotional health and ultimately overall academic and life success.
Girls on the Run
Again, this is a program that is Parent- driven and started in 2010. Girls on the Run is a national organization that supports young girls in forming positive body images, and teaches ways to support them as they approach young adolescence. This usually begins in the early part of each February and culminates in a local running event in May. This is a fee-based after-school program and space is limited.
