Running Club!Running club invites all students from every grade to come out and run before school from August to late September. At the end of our weeks running, we will finish the season with the Annual Crosstown Classic race event that brings students from other elementary schools in the district to Mill Street for this fun and exciting race event!The winning school wins the golden sneaker trophy!
What is Run Club?
Our mission is to promote running in children of all ages and abilities. To organize activities that demonstrate self-esteem, while building opportunities that encourage independent running. We run because we can!
How are the children supervised?
Most activities begin with dynamic stretches. These activities are led by
upper classmen (4th and 5th graders). Run activities will follow and games will occur once a week. These activities allow children to interact and become more comfortable with school. I will oversee all activities from 7:30 a.m.-8:00 a.m. Any parents who feel compelled to help are welcome to stay.
What is the Crosstown Classic?
Be part of the tradition as this will be our seventh annual event. Each year, students run for their schools. On Tuesday, September 26th beginning at 3:45 p.m. there will be 12 races. Please save this date and represent your elementary school. This event is free and parents should expect at least 150 students to compete in each race.
