Folwell Fall Running Club 2017
WHAT: Folwell Fall Running Club
WHO: All Students, Kindergarten through Fifth Grade
WHEN: 8:40 - 9 a.m., Monday - Friday, September 12 – October 14
WHERE: Folwell Playground WHY: Fun and fitness
Running Club is a FREE event sponsored by the PTSA. Students run or walk laps around the playground (6 laps = 1 mile). The purpose is to teach students to set goals, to improve fitness, and to prepare for a day of learning. 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. Each morning there will be a $5 gift card drawing for students in attendance. In case of rain, supervised exercises and games will be held in the cafeteria.
Remember to wear running shoes. No open-toed shoes will be allowed.
All students must have a parent’s signature to participate. Fill out the bottom portion of this page and return it to school by Friday, September 8th.
We will be looking for volunteers to help supervise the students running. Please look for an email to sign-up to volunteer.

Volunteering at Folwell Elementary School
At Folwell School, we have an outstanding staff, great kids and parents, and MANY opportunities to get involved as often as you would like!
All Rochester Public Schools volunteers must complete the online Volunteers in Education (ViE) application prior to volunteering. This application can be found on the Rochester Public Schools ViE website: http://www.rochester.k12.mn.us/departments/family_and_community_engagement/volunteers_in_education__vie_
Here, you can register for both classroom and field trip volunteering. (If you click on Field Trip, you will automatically be saved as a site/classroom volunteer as well.) Site volunteers do not need to reapply once they are entered into the system. Field trip volunteers will need to reapply every 3 school years. Once you receive notification of your approval, you may start to sign up for volunteer opportunities.
HOW TO SIGN UP FOR AN EVENT:
To sign up for a volunteer opportunity, please visit the Folwell blog site (http://www.folwell.info), and find the “Click to Volunteer!” tab on the upper bar. You will be directed to all available Folwell volunteer opportunities, and can sign up for as much as you would like.
Classroom volunteer requests and field trip chaperone needs will be initiated by your child’s teacher. Some teachers start using volunteers during the first week of school; some wait until October or November, and some only occasionally request volunteers-- every teacher is different.
Upcoming volunteer opportunities are sent via the Folwell Blog. Blog posts are available on the main page of the Folwell blog website (www.folwell.info).
