RUNNING CLUB: A great way for students to be active and meet new friends. Running club dates for K-2 are: Sept. 20, Oct. 4, and Oct. 11. Grades 3-5 will run on Sept. 22, 29 and Oct 6. There will be no club on Sept. 27 due to picture day. The club begins right after school at 3:35 on the blacktop and children will need to be picked up by 4:30. No running experience necessary. All levels of runners are welcome. Parent volunteers are needed to help with check-in/check-out, walking along the one-mile route to ensure the safety of the children, or even run with them. More information and permission slips will be coming soon. Children will not be able to participate without a signed permission slip. Quesions? Contact Tammi Grippo (firstname.lastname@example.org)
