Running club is cancelled today due to weather. Please have your child go home their normal way of transportation today. If you have any concerns, please contact the school office. Thank you, Mrs. Pipkin and Mrs. MeredithRunning club is offered to students in 4th and 5th grade.
The running club is all about fitness, fun, and friendship. We will meet once a month. The first meeting will be on Monday, October 19, 2015 at East Lake Elementary. We will meet on these Mondays of every month (Oct. 19, Nov. 16, Dec. 14, Jan. 11, Feb. 8, Mar. 21, Apr. 18, & May 16) from 2:30-3:30 PM. Please put these dates down on your calendar.
In order to be a member of the running club there are certain requirements that must be met. Those requirements are as follows:
1) Turn in a completed physical and registration card.
**Deadline to turn in the physical and registration card is Wednesday, October 14 (No one will be accepted after the deadline)
**NO PHYSICAL = NO RUNNING CLUB
**Most doctor offices already have pre-participation physical forms. If not, go onto the UGHS webpage, click on “athletics,” and you can print the form out from there.
2) Grades must be satisfactory (A and B averages)
3) Must have good behavior
4) Be committed
*The running club is a privilege. If behavior becomes an issue, the student will be removed from the club.
*Will there be a Fee? Yes. There will be a fee of $10 to help pay for Running Club T-Shirts. This fee will be collected once I have the Running Club assembled.
* We are limiting the number of participants this year. We are only taking the first 15 participants who turn in their physical forms and registration card. We will also be participating in 2 5K runs this year, one in December and another one in the spring.
*Please make sure your son/daughter dresses appropriately. They need to wear comfortable running attire (t-shirt, shorts, warm-up suits, sweatshirt, running shoes, etc.). They may always change into their running attire at the end of the school day, right before running club starts.
*On the day your child has running club, please pick them up at the gym no later than 3:30. If you have any questions please don’t hesitate to ask.
