All Aboard at Evans Elementary!

This year, Evans Elementary decided to implement "Marathon Kids" on our campus. So far, it has been a great success. 50 students from 2nd to 5th Grade have been participating regularly. We currently have two students who have completed three marathons and four students who have completed one marathon. In addition to running during physical education, students run during recess, at running club practice after school and on Saturday 5 K runs. Teachers have not just offered to help track students' progress, but have also decided to run along with their students. Overall, having "Marathon Kids" on our campus has provided a positive and healthy environment.

How did students and adults work together as a team?
