Fall Running Club

Running Club begins Monday, September 9th and runs until Friday October 11th.
We meet everyday before school on the playground at 8:45 until first bell. 
Running Club is a FREE event sponsored by the PTSA.  Students run or walk laps around the playground (6 laps = 1 mile).  The goal is to teach students to set goals and to improve fitness.  Teachers report that those students who participate in running club come to class ready to learn.

Everyone is welcome. You can show up once or as many times as you like. At the end of each week there will be a drawing for those students who have attended all 5 days of the week.   We will not keep track of laps.  This is for fun or you can use this time to prepare for the Kevin Langlie Memorial One Mile Fun Run on October 8th at Century High School (informational flyer will be forthcoming).

Remember to wear running shoes.  No open toed shoes will be allowed.  Also, do not drop your children off in the parking lot unless accompanied to the playground by an adult.   There will be no running club if inclement weather.
All students must have a parent’s signature to participate.  BRIGHT ORANGE registration forms went home in the folders on Meet the Teacher Night.  Extra forms can be found in the cabinet in front of the main office.
Please contact Sarah Lichty ( if you have any questions. 
We are in need of volunteers.
We will meet everyday before school on the playground at 8:45 and run until first bell.  Volunteers help keep track of attendance, supervise and help to make running club a safe and welcoming place for everyone.  
In the event of rain or inclement weather running club will be canceled.  Please click on the link below to sign up to volunteer.  If all the slots are full, know that extra volunteers are always welcome.
