Cross Country 2016 Season
This season we continued our fall cross country club. We met once a week after school for an hour to jog and run. The students ran up to 2 miles in practice! We held 2 meets with 4 other schools. During the meets the students ran a mile and their classmates came out with signs to cheer them on! The meets and practices have been a big success!

How did students and adults work together as a team?

We have 30 students on the team and 4 adults as the coaches. We all meet once a week for practice. The adults run with the kids and it's great to bond with the kids when we are all exercising together! The other 4th and 5th grade teachers really helped out as well by bringing their students out to cheer on at the meet, and encouraging good sportsmanship.
