RECESS RUNNING CLUB

Running Club is coming in January, thanks to GO! Grant from AMPED!
 
We are proud to announce that Cherry Crest was one of the fewer than 100 schools in the US chosen to receive the GO! Grant this year from AMPED, a not-for-profit school-based program which aims to amplify education through daily physical activity.
 
This enables us to be able to launch our very first recess running club at Cherry Crest, beginning Tuesday, January 14, 2020!
 
This FREE club will be offered every day at lunch recess (except Wednesdays) at the Cherry Crest track.  This is a completely optional activity and students are welcome to join at any time and run or walk as much or as little as they wish!  For every mile completed, students will earn a running charm which they can keep!  Additional charms and prizes will be awarded at the milestones of 5K (3.1 miles), 10K (6.2 miles), half-marathon (13.1 miles) and marathon (26.2 miles).
 
Join us!
 
1.  Sign up your runner online by Friday, January 10th so we can get your student’s scan card ready for the first day of running club.  Paper sign-up forms will also go home with students on Monday January 6th, after winter break.
 
2.  Volunteers, sign up to help with barcode scanning.  Come every day or choose your favorite days, times and classes!  Each slot is just 30 minutes, pick a few times or take them all! 
 

Parents and teachers are also welcome to run!  

Thank you for supporting the Running Club!

Girls on the Run
After School Program

GIRLS ON THE RUN

Is your daughter ready to take on a fun challenge?  Have her join us for 10 awesome weeks in the Girls on the Run program!  Girls on the Run is an after school program that empowers 3rd-5th grade girls to make new friends, build upon strengths, and make a difference in the community.  Your daughter will finish the season by completing in a non-competitive 5K with other amazing girls!

When: Twice a week for 90 minutes from March 2 to May 18 after school
Where: Cherry Crest School
Who: Open to any 3rd, 4th, or 5th grade girl

Space is limited, so please make sure to register your daughter by January 24th.  Girls who are registered between January 10th through January 24th will be entered into a lottery for the opportunity to participate in Girls on the Run.

DO YOU want to get involved in Girls on the Run too?  We need parent coaches! When you volunteer as a Girls on the Run coach, your daughter is guaranteed a spot in the program.  You can read more about being a parent coach for Girls on the Run here.  Coach registration is due by January 17th.

Please contact Patricia Gilbert at gilbertp@bsd405.org if you have any questions.
