Come spring into action with the Running Club! This year Running Club will start the first day of Spring, Tuesday, March 20th, and will run every Tuesday, Wednesday, and Friday during first recess (weather permitting). All students in Kindergarten through 5th can run, jog or walk to get healthy and get ready for the Deer Dash on Saturday, May 19th.
The format will be similar to last year. The same bar-coded IDs will be used to track mileage, only this year scanning will be much quicker thanks to the updated app.
Like last year, lanyards with barcodes will be given to all students before each Running Club recess. Students will scan their barcodes after every lap they complete (1 lap = ¼ mile) and earn charms based on how far they run. This year to earn a charm K through 2nd grades must complete a ½ mile and 3rd through 5th grades must complete ¾ mile in a recess. Charms will be handed out once a week by students’ teachers. We had hoped to hand them out at recess, but didn’t want to take away time for the students to run.
Students who participate at least 10 times in the Running Club and complete the Deer Dash will receive a special medal at the Deer Dash! (Subject to change based on weather.)
We need your help! We will be looking for adult volunteers to come out and help with scanning and walking and/or running with the kids. A sign up genius will be sent out soon. All volunteers must have completed volunteer training. If you are interested please contact Meg Marsden and Kathy Scarzello at firstname.lastname@example.org
There are a few new things we are working on for this year so stay tuned. More information will be coming!!
