December 2018 Update & Goal Announcement

Running Club is off to a great start! So far we have run over 900 miles as a school - all the way to Salt Lake City, UT! We have created a new challenge for this school year. Our goal is to run enough miles to equal the distance of running to the Panama Canal, which is 4,924 miles away! It's a big goal but we believe the kids will make it! We spent time in PE teaching students about the Panama Canal, so ask your student(s) what they learned!


November Kickoff:

Each student has a running club card available in binders located on tables by the softball field.
Binders are organized by grade and teacher.

Students will run (or walk) with the card and have it scanned for each lap they run.
This card will track miles run or walked for the student!

Student will earn shoe tokens for miles earned including:

1 mile
5 miles
10 miles
13.1 miles (half marathon)
15 miles
20 miles
25 miles
26.2 miles (marathon)
30 miles
35 miles
and so on...

Parents are welcome to come and walk or run with their students or just cheer them on.




Volunteers are always appreciated to
help scan running cards,
help find/refile running cards,
or just cheer them all on!!

Want to help, email the running club OR just show up!!
